Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller return to Dais after their last album in 2018

ADULT. have shared details of their new album, Perception Is / As / Of Derception.

Their second full-length outing on Dais Record, following 2018's This Behavior, the new album's release is preceded by lead cut 'Why Always Why', which you can watch a video for above.

"'Why Always Why' is a brief phrase taken from a line in Jean Cocteau's film, Testament of Orpheus, the Detroit duo explained in a statement. "From Cocteau's view, the phrase may have represented a moment of self-analysis, but in our view it represented a moment of analysis of society and culture. The repeating theme of herd mentality. Dullness in consuming. A perception of how consuming may make everything alright.

"The sentiment here is a sentiment of the forever outsider. Of the person who feels as if they were dumped into some strange landscape, with no escape."

The duo will follow the album's release with an extensive tour of North America, alongside Body Of Light, kicking off in May, before heading to the UK and Europe for a further run of headline shows in August which are yet to be announced. Find their full list of upcoming dates so far here.

Dais will release Perception Is / As / Of Derception on April 10, 2020.
