Future Teenage Cave Artists is the fifteenth studio album by American rock band Deerhoof, released in May 2020 via Joyful Noise Recordings.

Deerhoof is an American independent music group formed in San Francisco in 1994. It currently consists of founding drummer Greg Saunier, bassist and singer Satomi Matsuzaki, and guitarists John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez. Beginning as an improvised noise punk band, Deerhoof became widely renowned and influential in the 2000s through self-produced albums that combine "noise, sugary pop melodies, and an experimental spirit into utterly distinctive music". They have released fifteen studio albums since 1997.

Over the past couple of years while making their new album, Deerhoof have been asking themselves if there was any music they could create that expressed how our rapidly emerging future might actually feel. The band envisioned an album about people haunted by memory of a lost world and of every failed attempt to save it.

People already living outside the system, already having practiced new ways of life required for survival-these hopeful heroes are Deerhoof's inspiration. These are the Future Teenage Cave Artists.

Faithful listeners will recognize a certain alienated but transformational figure who shows up in Deerhoof songs going back to their earliest days. Take the narrator of "The Perfect Me" from 2007's Friend Opportunity: an orphaned but eager soul attempting to entice other wounded wanderers who might lack a home, a clan, a family, a history.

But on Future Teenage Cave Artists our protagonist is threatened by terror lurking around every corner. Add to that the fact that our 'cast-off queen,' our 'maniac,' our 'terrible daughter' is watching themselves get orphaned in real time, by an older generation in power that would seemingly rather see life on Earth destroyed than let go of archaic systems of capital.

Two singles from the album, "Future Teenage Cave Artists" and "The Loved Ones," were released in March 2020 and a third single, "Farewell Symphony", was released in April 2020.

"Deerhoof is a weapon loaded with the future." - Agust n Fern ndez Mallo, Spanish physicist and writer.

This album is a limited edition on blood red coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a download code, pressed in the US via Joyful Noise Recordings.
