Deleted Scenes Get Focused On New ‘The Days of Adderall’ Single

Announce Winter National Tour Dates

“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

Washington DC-based quartet Deletes Scenes have debuted “The Days of Adderall” with Prefix, a new single taken from their sophomore full-length, Young People’s Church of the Air. Building on the dark, heady feel of their championed 2009 debut, Birdseed Shirt, the new LP pushes the band’s rhythm section further, experimenting with 80s pop, R&B, surf rock, dark funk, and Go-Go. Deleted Scenes kick off a string of East coast dates today with Jukebox the Ghost and The Spinto Band, and will embark on a national tour with Chicago-based art-pop band, A Lull, in January.

Their newest collection of songs originated in frontman Daniel Scheuerman’s basement taking on 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.
