Anticipation seems to be building on a national scale for Deastro's full-band debut LP, Moondagger, which officially arrives on June 23rd via Ghostly International. The "Vermillion Plaza" single -- along with its B-side, a squelchy, lumbering remix by Ghostly Swim featured artist Mux Mool -- drops next Tuesday, May 12th.

Mr. Chabot and crew will be following that up with a quick June tour that's taking them to some of the hottest clubs outside of this city, including Spaceland in the Silverlake district of Los Angeles. Will the phenomenon translate outside of the Motor City? That remains to be seen...but this is a mighty cool start.
