Post-punk band Deeper late last month revealed their newest single 'This Heat', which is a preview of their forthcoming sophomore album Auto-Pain. The album will be released on March 27 via Fire Talk Records.

Deeper was inspired by Chicago and the drastic difference between the deary and bleak nature of winter compared to summertime in the city. The band said, "In 'This Heat' we explore this lack of sun and the seasonal depression that sometimes accompanies it. It’s a metaphor for how we cope with particular low points and how euphoric it can feel when the feeling passes–even if momentarily. The song relates to the album as a whole because while the record is about depression, it’s also about finding a way to get better. We wanted to bottle up the hope we feel on the first day over 40 degrees.”

For their upcoming album Auto-Pain, the band draws influence from Aldous Huxley's masterpiece dystopian novel Brave New World, including the book's use of soma as a way of eliminating human emotions and pain.
