FEATURED: 'Lake Song' by Deeper (PVA Remix)

Updated: Jun 28, 2021

Deeper returns on the heels of the Auto-Pain (Deluxe) to announce a run of shows this November and December which will bring the band to select markets in the United Kingdom and Europe. The band has also shared a glitched out remix of 'Auto-Pain' stand out "Lake Song" by London dance punk trio PVA. The remix leans into the "queasy feeling" (Stereogum) of the original, turns up the energy and morphs the track into a woozy beatific dance number.

It was late March of 2020 when Deeper released their sophomore album, Auto-Pain, an LP that drew critical acclaim from outlets like VICE, Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, Paste and CLASH who called the album "a majestic step forward" for the quartet. The band was preparing for a full year of touring, coming off of a European run with Twin Peaks and a triumphant NYC release show at Rough Trade, with plans for headlining tours in North America and Europe, but those plans were suddenly derailed when the pandemic began. These set backs did not dim the enthusiasm generated by Auto-Pain, nor did it dampen the band's tireless work ethic, and following their successful livestream from the Chicago Cultural Center in March, Deeper will hit the road on a headline tour UK & Europe in addition to sharing a remix of "Lake Song" by fellow UK rising act PVA. The latter will be included on the upcoming Auto-Pain: Deluxe Edition on Fire Talk Records. The new 2-disc version of the LP reframes the liminal spaces of the Chicago quartet’s searingly-nuanced album about grief and resilience into a densely-layered perspective of emotional maximalism, fearless in its vulnerability, and includes remixes two stripped-back demos and live versions from the band’s Chicago Cultural Center performance, and remixes from fellow ascending artists Working Men’s Club, Fire-Toolz, NNAMDI, and the aforementioned PVA. While the original version delivered a masterclass in razor-sharp post punk, the expanded record gives a glimpse into a lens of a year full of adversity and the growth and perspective that draws these songs together to pack a powerful, personal punch. Auto Pain: Deluxe Edition is out September 3rd on Fire Talk.
