Following the release of their acclaimed album ‘Runners Four’ (via ATP Recordings, 2005) and a sold-out show at London’s Scala earlier this year, San Francisco's Deerhoof are very proud to confirm shows with RADIOHEAD in August. Having already supported the band in the US this year, the band will play 3 shows in Europe including Edinburgh, Dublin and Amsterdam.
Having in more recent years released numerous critically acclaimed albums including ‘Green Cosmos’, 'Milk Man' and ‘The Runners Four’ – an album which gleefully smashed through outmoded boundaries, bearing gifts of sonic contraband - Deerhoof spent most of 2005 touring. The band define the musical ethic of our generation: calling for an end to traditional/experimental arguments; heralding the era of the defiant DIY album, every bit the artistic equal of any inflated major label production; and creating a non-disposable popular music that grows more inspiring the more it is heard.

24-Aug Dublin Marlay Park
28-Aug Amsterdam Heineken Music Hall
Deerhoof will also play their own headline show at Temple Bar Music Centre on August 23

"a dazzling, primal collage of Sonic Youth-ish freak-outs and avant-jazz jams, held together by dandy pop tunes." 4/5 The Independent
"wrapped in dense goth psychedelia and jagged art-rock guitars" 9/10 NME
“This is the sound of a band playing by their own rules – music to lose yourself in..” Independent On Sunday
