Diehard Dengue Fever fans fiending for new music from the eclectic Cambodian and American sextet will be pleased with today's news that the popular LA based band, who have not released an all new album since June 2011's Cannibal Courtship, have announced the release of an all new album four weeks into the new year. Scheduled to arrive in Amoeba in (colored) vinyl and CD formats on January 27th, 2015 the new full-length entitled The Deepest Lake will be the band's fifth album and will not only continue their unique melding of psych/surf/Cambodian pop but also expand into new musical territory with the additions of African percussion and vocals that have drawn comparisons to legendary LA punk pioneers X.

Described by the band's Senon Williams as their "most challenging record to date" the bassist explained the new musical terrain covered by the band, now in their second decade together as a group, as them wishing "to explore some ideas we’d experimented with in the past to try and capture a more expressive sound. Musically we went with a more raw approach while vocally Chhom Nimol came through with her signature power, intimacy and passion." The ten track LP will include such songs as "Deepest Lake on the Planet,"  "Still Waters Run Deep," and "Taxi Dancer." Dates for a corresponding tour for The Deepest Lake will be announced later this month. Meanwhile below is a video of Dengue Fever performing live at Amoeba Berkeley back in June of 2008.
