Toronto, ON — January 17, 2020 — Today, Holy Fuck release their acclaimed new album, Deleter, via Last Gang Records. The project was introduced by incredible singles, Luxe (featuring Alexis Taylor), which was A-Listed on 6Music, Free Gloss (featuring Nicholas Allbrook) and finally, the album title homage, Deleters. Having also taken their cerebral, mind-blowing show out on the road with Hot Chip, Holy Fuck’s extensive run of global tour dates for 2020 continue with stops across Canada – see complete details below.

The song ‘Deleters,’” write Holy Fuck, “started at a party in the woods of rural Quebec. Set up on the forest floor, literally over moss covered tree roots we decided to make up a new hour-long improvised set in front of a crowd of people dancing amongst the trees. From that session two songs emerged and found their way onto the new record. This is the first time we selected a song from the record to also be a title track- but there really isn't a reason for it other than we thought it sounded cool, like a modern version of Fugazi's Repeater or Depeche Mode's Violater (or even Kiss' Destroyer, though in name only). Our friend Angus from Liars doubles Brian's vocals giving the track a nice punch.

Introducing their new album in their own words today, Holy Fuck write:

“People have been saying this is our danciest record. That may be true to a point (we like dancing... who doesn't'?) but we hope it shows a new depth as well. We've never identified with one particular genre or sound but rather spend our time trying to explore our own world and the things that make us vibrate.  Of course we want to connect with listeners, and what better way than to make people dance, but, as heard on ‘Deleter’, we also want to put listeners in the cool spaces we see and take them on the interesting journeys we like going on as well.”

The record as a whole came together in many different stages of creativity, which is typical of how we work. This process is forced upon us by the fact that we all live in different cities from one another. Yet at the same time this process also demonstrates our enthusiasm to create whenever, wherever, and however we can. There are obviously no rules to making music, no perfect situation or time to create. There are just ideas. ‘Deleter’ was written during various sound checks on tour, on stage, while jamming at a strange art-party in a forest, at home, in various rehearsal spaces, and at many different studios along the way. Not only did this process allow us the time to sit with and ponder our ideas it also allowed us to explore different kinds of inspiration we were feeling at that particular moment. One minute we might've been raving to minimal techno, the next, diving into horror movie soundtracks or maybe just manipulating the sound of static noise sampled from a broken piece of equipment. 

Staying true to the creative arc we seem to be finding ourselves on since the first LP, ‘Deleter’ might be our most "written" album yet. A lot of attention and care was taken to create the 'seeds' of ideas and starting points that we then fleshed out, and just as much care was taken to craft those ideas into the songs heard on the final record. Hopefully listeners hear that as well.”  

A band who have played by their own rules for the last part of 15 years, Holy Fuck’s new album is the most accomplished moment yet from a group who have become one of their country’s finest, and most influential, exports; seamlessly fusing the gauzy drive of krautrock and deep house’s dreamy ineffability, and expertly blending purring motorik percussion with the sort of fuggy synthetic fizz that so often sends clubbers into states of unselfconscious rapture. 

Arriving at a moment where attention spans are shot and anxieties are going into overdrive, Deleter is a defiantly full-bodied affair. Polyrhythmic and pleasure- focused, it’s a record that explores what happens when humanity and technology coalesce into one big, semi-organic celebration of spontaneity, repetition, and individuality. As the band puts it, “the robots are smarter than ever, and the algorithm knows more and more what we like as individuals, but we have to remind ourselves that there is music in the margins that can go missing and that that music is more important than ever.” Marginal or not, Deleter is the sound of Holy Fuck freely ebbing and flowing in their own unique ecosystem. As a listener, you’ve got a choice - carry on with the passive consumption, or push back, engage, and move to something worth your time. Something like Deleter.
