Deleted Scenes Announce Fall Tour Dates Behind New LP, 'Young People's Church of the Air'

Washington DC-based quartet Deleted Scenes have announced a set of fall tour dates with Jukebox the Ghost and The Spinto Band including two December sets in NYC.

They will perform behind their sophomore full-length, Young People's Church of the Air, an experimental patchwork of 80's pop, R&B, surf rock, dark funk, and Go-Go. The new LP follows their championed debut, Birdseed Shirt, that Pitchfork hailed as, "ferocious, brave, and a well-balanced demonstration of both thoughtful existentialism and strange, drowsy downers."

Their newest collection of songs originated in frontman Daniel Scheuerman's basement and assumed a live identity over the course of 300 tour dates. Recorded at the Garden Center in Hockessin, DE, with Nick Krill (The Spinto Band) and Birdseed Shirt producer L. Skell, the album mixes themes of family, love, death, and joy incorporating studio sounds and home-recorded lo-fi noise.

Young People's Church of the Air's title was fittingly taken from a 1930's radio-church hymnal Scheuerman found in an old piano bench at the Garden Center, and evokes the elusive and sometimes illusory nature of hope.

Deleted Scenes have shared the stage with Cursive, Wild Nothing, Abe Vigoda, Black Kids, The Antlers, Medications, and Matt and Kim among others, and have performed at SXSW, CMJ, and Pop Montreal.

"If Deleted Scenes isn't the best rock band in Washington, it's certainly on the very short list." - Washington Post

"[Bedbedbedbedbed] is an indie club anthem with floating guitars, gentle-and-charming melodies, and military-march drums" - SPIN

"Scheuerman has a gift for distilling complex thoughts into everyday language...Church of the Air squats a unique ground between pop and experimental impulses" - Pitchfork 7.8
