Stream the Soft Moon’s New Album, ‘Deeper’
At the end of last year, the Soft Moon -- a post-punk project helmed by producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Luis Vasquez -- debuted the industrial-driven “Black,” the lead single from the Oakland, Calif.-based outfit’s upcoming third album, Deeper. The LP arrives in a week’s time on March 31 via Captured Tracks, but you can give it a spin in its entirety now over on NPR.
A press release described the 10-track album as an “inward-looking representation of a new man as he processes the relentless undercurrent of his internal battles with suicide, vulnerability and healing.” As such, Deeper is possibly some of Vasquez’s darkest material to date, but it’s also his most streamlined and impactful.
Deeper follows the Soft Moon’s 2010 self-titled debut and Vasquez’s 2012 follow-up, Zeros.
Vasquez will embark on a tour in support of his latest album at the beginning of April in Philadelphia. From there, he has U.S. dates scheduled through May before he travels abroad for the European leg of his tour. Find a complete list of dates and tickets on the Soft Moon’s website.
