I remember the first time I heard Dan Deacon, having my mind melt away from the amount of layering and noise being blasted into my ears, but still having this unexplainable urge to dance like a fiend and let all of the people in my life know I love them dearly! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, add a bit of spice into your life with Dan Deacon’s Snookered from his 2009 release Bromst.

The follow up to 2012’s America is called Glass Riffer, and it’s out February 24 in North America and February 23 everything else!

There is a limited edition of 777 Red 150 gram Vinyl available for pre-order. The order comes with a 12″ inflatable Gliss Riffer hand too!


Check out  “Feel The Lightning”, below. A new song off the upcoming record. Believe it or not, those females vocals you’re hearing are Mr. Deacon. 

The Details

Pre-order Gliss Riffer in any format and receive an instant download of ‘Feel the Lightning.' The Gliss Riffer inflatable hand is over 12” in height and only available for a limited time, so act quickly. Display it on your bookshelf, hang it from your window, bring it to a Dan Deacon show. Blow it up!

Gliss Riffer marks new territory for Deacon who, following up on the release of his large ensemble-based recordings - 2009's Bromst and 2012's America - decided to return to a simpler way of writing and recording, similar to that of 2007's Spiderman of the Rings, which resulted in this self-produced album.

What Gliss Riffer shares with Spiderman of the Rings as a musical experience is a direct and ecstatic energy. It trades in exuberant, uncontained fun that is tempered by lyrics that yearn and are set in defiance of life's nagging anxiety. The bliss on this record is well-earned.
