Last week, Grouplove kicked off HEALER with the release of their lead single, “Deleter.” After its premiere on Sirius XM, the track and companion video were met with widespread critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. Billboard hailed the “much-anticipated return” as “political and powerful” while Consequence of Soundstated, “It’s almost impossible to hear the song without imagining the band dancing around the recording studio. For the first single from a new album, it certainly bodes well for the musical direction Grouplove are going in.”

“Deleter” arrived alongside an equally anarchic, high-energy companion video, directed by award-winning cinematographer Chris Blauvelt companion video that was directed by Chris Blauvelt, who served as Cinematographer on Jonah Hill’s directorial debut Mid90s.

Grouplove will embark on the wide-spread US headline Healer tour, kicking off March 18th at Santa Fe, NM’s Meow Wolf and then traveling the United States through late May (see trailer HERE and full itinerary below and HERE).
