Deerhoof Hyper-extend Fall Tour, No Actual Deer Harmed

Dear Deerhoof,

On behalf of the PETA organization, I hereby insist that you immediately cease and desist in your senseless, wanton, and ongoing character defamation of one of our most majestic and stately forest-dwelling friends and brothers, the humble Ruminantia Cervidae (that's "deer" to tragically uninformed laypeople such as yourselves).

This animal, one of God's most graceful and unassuming, has already been saddled with the brutal reality of man's careless encroachment into the wild, making him victim to constant automobile onslaughts and yearly Hunting Season massacres in America alone.

And now, your "rock and roll" (whatever that means these days!) band has the audacity to further persecute our noble friend, the deer, by attaching its otherwise pure name to the dissonant, spastic, and noisily-electric music of the devil. Sure, you may try to mask your pro-prog, anti-nature, deer-defaming agenda with clever, non-threatening album titles such as your most recent Friend Opportunity LP (TMT Review), but the facts don't lie. There is nothing friendly about your bizarre, shrill music. I can assure you that you have no friends at PETA.

Do you find it amusing to employ the name of this gentle mammal for your destructive musical ends? Are we to sit idly by while you promote the image of severed deer body parts, laughing all the way to the bank? Well, we at PETA can assure you that this is no laughing matter. Rest assured (especially you, Satomi Matsuzaki) that we will be urging our members and their families to boycott the following fall tourdates:

$ Bloc Party

% Smoosh

* Release the Bats with The Liars, Black Lips, & Deerhunter

Which reminds me :

Dear Deerhunter...
