It was late March of 2020 when Deeper released their sophomore album, “Auto-Pain”, an LP that drew universal acclaim, earning praise from outlets like VICEStereogumBrooklynVeganPaste and CLASH who called the album “a majestic step forward” for the band. The band was preparing for a full year of touring, coming off of a European run with Twin Peaks and a triumphant NYC release show at Rough Trade, with plans for headlining tours in North America and Europe, but those plans were suddenly derailed when the pandemic began.

These set backs did not dim the enthusiasm generated by Auto-Pain, nor did it dampen the band’s tireless work ethic, and today, following right behind their successful livestream from the Chicago Cultural Centre in March, Deeper are announcing the upcoming “Auto-Pain: Deluxe Edition” on Fire Talk Records. 

The new 2-disc version of the LP reframes the liminal spaces of the Chicago quartet’s searingly-nuanced album about grief and resilience into a densely-layered perspective of emotional maximalism, fearless in its vulnerability, and includes remixes two stripped-back demos and live versions from the band’s Chicago Cultural Center performance, and remixes from fellow ascending artists Working Men’s ClubFire-Toolz, PVA, and their Chicago peer NNAMDI, whose remix of “4U” the band are sharing today to mark the announce. 

Deeper’s Auto Pain: Deluxe Edition reframes the liminal spaces of the Chicago quartet’s searingly-nuanced sophomore effort about grief and resilience into a densely-layered perspective of emotional maximalism fearless in its vulnerability. The deluxe edition includes remixes from fellow ascending artists Working Men’s Club, PVA, NNAMDI and more as well as two stripped-back demos and live versions from the band’s performance at the Chicago Cultural Center in March 2021. While the original version delivered a masterclass in razor-sharp post punk, the expanded record gives a glimpse into a lens of a year full of adversity and the growth and perspective that draws these songs together to pack a powerful, personal punch. Auto Pain: Deluxe Edition is out September 3rd on Fire Talk Records.
