Deerhunter released Monomania this past May on 4AD. Following 2010's polished Halcyon Digest, Monomania marks a return to a more aggressive, garage punk style for the band. Since the album's release, Deerhunter curated their own weekend at ATP UK, where they performed their albums Cryptocrams, Microcastle, and Halcyon Digest in full. They also began touring around the U.S. and booked a run of three shows in New York between Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg and Manhattan's Webster Hall. They played their first show to a sold out crowd at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.
