Deer Hunter Reveal Interactive Map of Inspiration for New Album

dh interactive
Deer hunt has offered us all a look behind the curtain, showing us the places that inspired their new album Fading Frontier, out Octber 16th on 4AD.  Bradford Cox drew an  interactive concept map taking fans on a tour of the places that inspired him to write the record. From Pharaoh Sanders to Vicente Huidobro, Juniper Ridge fragrances to soulless car smells, the map offers an insight into the literary and visual tropes of the group’s seventh studio album, along with the impact of Cox’s car accident in late 2014.

Pre-orders of the album through the 4AD Store (World ex. Europe) will get a free limited edition screenprint of Bradford’s map.

In the accompanying interview, Cox discusses five concepts identified on the map, including Laurie Spiegel and the decline of the music industry. You can explore the map via Vulture here.

Deerhunter will tour extensively throughout North America and Europe around the release ofFading Frontier. You can find all dates & ticket information below or at deerhuntermusic.com.
