In creating Ordinary Corrupt Human Love—their second full-length for ANTI- Records—Deafheaven expanded their heavy, kinetic sound to bring in layered psychedelic vocals, jazz-inspired percussion, and intricate piano melodies. Produced by Jack Shirley, the album takes its title from Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair, reflecting a theme of hazy, yearning romanticism threaded throughout the tracks.

Last month, Deafheaven premiered “Canary Yellow,” the latest single from Ordinary Corrupt Human Love. Clocking in at over 12 minutes, the vast and epic track begins with ethereal textures and gauzy guitar tones, then lurches into a glorious assault of heavy riffs, thunderous rhythms, and the howling vocals of frontman George Clarke.

Known for their transcendent live show, Deafheaven recently announced U.S. tour dates in support of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love. The 30-date run begins July 11 at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix and continues through August 18 at The Wiltern in L.A. In addition, Deafheaven has announced a UK/EU summer tour with Inter Arma as support.

Formed in San Francisco in 2010, Deafheaven 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.
