Kranky will handle the release in North America, while 4AD will issue it internationally.
The track list is nearly identical to the version that leaked online this spring. First single "Nothing Ever Happened" will be issued on 7-inch vinyl at some point prior to the album's release date.
"Microcastle" is less in-your-face than 2007's "Cryptograms," hewing more closely to frontman Bradford Cox's side project Atlas Sound. Highlights include the dreamy "Agoraphobia," the chugging "Never Stops" and "Twilight at Carbon Lake," which starts as a subdued ballad before exploding into noise at its conclusion.
Guitarist Lockett Pundt relieves Cox on the mic on "Agoraphobia," and "Neither of Us, Uncertainly."
Deerhunter is opening for Nine Inch Nails in North America this summer, and will headline its own tour in support of "Microcastle" this fall.
Here is the track list for "Microcastle":
"Cover Me (Slowly)"
"Nothing Ever Happened"
"Saved by Old Times"
"Neither of Us, Uncertainly"
"Twilight at Carbon Lake"
