After launching a countdown two days ago - believed to be to the announcement of a new album; see our report here - Deerhunter now enlighten us ... somewhat.
At 11pm tonight (Sunday August 16) which is 4am in the UK (Monday) Bradford Cox will take to the airwaves of Atlanta radio station 1690AM to host a two-hour show. The show will also be streamed live online via the band's website here.
Ahead of that, the first song from what is the unofficially titled 'Fading Frontier' album has already surfaced online.
