Fading Frontier, Deerhunter’s seventh studio album, was released in 2015 and reunited the band with Ben H. Allen, the same producer who helmed recordings for their acclaimed 2010 record Halcyon Digest. With contributions from Broadcast’s James Cargill and Tim Gane from Stereolab, Fading Frontier wowed critics, and featured heavily in end of year polls at the Guardian, NME, MOJO and Uncut.
