Deerhunter kick off tour, Microcastle gets physical
After its accidental leak and legal iTunes debut in August, Deerhunter's Microcastle, perhaps the most anticipated album by an Atlanta artist this year, finally hit stores in physical form on Tuesday (Oct. 28) via Kranky stateside and 4AD overseas. To appropriately celebrate this momentous occasion, Bradford Cox and company will embark up on a national tour, kicking it off on Halloween at their hometown's own Variety Playhouse, where they'll be joined by Jay Reatard, Times New Viking and Pylon.
