Acclaimed California-based band Deafheaven have revealed the second new song "Come Back" off their upcoming album New Bermuda which arrives October 2 on Anti-.
Digital pre-orders at iTunes for New Bermuda are available at http://smarturl.it/DeafheavenNB and come with an instant download of "Come Back" as well as the earlier released track, "Brought to the Water".
In “Come Back”, Deafheaven enters into musique soundscapes and hushed melodrama. The song resumes the band’s merciless assault of stampeding drums and vitriolic guitar harmonies before it shifts mid-song into somber territories.
Offering an audacious amalgamation of frenetic black metal, hypnotic shoe gaze and the aural atmospherics of post rock, Deafheaven deliver an extraordinarily innovative sound, simultaneously captivating and cathartic. New Bermuda is the anticipated follow up to 2013’s beloved album Sunbather.
George Clarke (vocals), Kerry McCoy (guitar), Dan Tracy (drums), Stephen Lee Clark (bass), and Shiv Mehra (guitar) recorded New Bermuda live to tape at 25th Street Recording in Oakland, CA and Atomic Garden Recording in East Palo Alto, CA in April 2015. It was produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jack Shirley who has worked with the band on their previous releases. Clarke says that he came up with the idea of “New Bermuda” to describe a new destination in life, a nebulous point of arrival, and an unknown future where things get swallowed up and dragged into darkness. The album artwork for New Bermuda is an oil painting, dense in brush strokes of darker tones and deep blues, by Allison Schulnik. The layout was designed by art director Nick Steinhardt.
Deafheaven will be embarking on a 30-date headlining tour of North America that begins on October 15th at The Casbah in San Diego and wraps up with two dates at The Roxy in Los Angeles on November 20 and November 21. Tickets are on-sale now. Digital pre-orders for New Bermuda are available at http://smarturl.it/DeafheavenNB with CD and vinyl copies at http://found.ee/DeafheavenNBstore.
