Metal lovers, rejoice! Deafheaven are back with a new record and a tour that is sure to dull the senses. They put out an epic new 12-minute single, “Honeycomb,” which you can hear below. Thrillcall is giving away a pair of tickets to select dates; find more information below.
On July 13, Deafheaven will release their highly anticipated fourth album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love. The band’s second full-length for Anti-, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love follows 2015’s critically acclaimed New Bermuda. Working again with producer Jack Shirley, Deafheaven have expanded their heavy, kinetic sound to bring in layered psychedelic vocals, jazz-inspired percussion, and intricate piano melodies. Ordinary Corrupt Human Love takes its title from Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair, reflecting a theme of hazy, yearning romanticism threaded throughout the album.
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love’s lead single “Honeycomb” further reveals Deafheaven’s literary sensibilities. With its lyrics referencing Argentinian writer Julio Cortázar (author of the stream-of-consciousness novel Hopscotch), the endlessly captivating track is accompanied by a video that shows glimpses of Deafheaven in the studio and captures their wanderings around San Francisco.
Formed in San Francisco in 2010, Deafheaven (vocalist George Clarke, guitarists Kerry McCoy and Shiv Mehra, and drummer Dan Tracy) made their debut with 2011’s Roads To Judah and had an unexpected crossover hit with their 2013 sophomore effort Sunbather. Along with being praised as “one of the best albums of the year” by Stereogum, their third album New Bermuda was hailed as “a brilliant collision of beauty and despair” in Pitchfork’s Best New Music review.
Known for their transcendent live show, Deafheaven announce tour dates in support of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love. The 30-date run begins July 11 in Phoenix, AZ at Crescent Ballroom and goes through August 18 in Los Angeles, CA at The Wiltern. Tickets are on sale Friday, April 20. (source: ANTI)
