Hot News: Spin.com Premieres Deafheaven ‘Sunbather’ Sneak Peek Video

Throughout the duration of recording their new album Sunbather, Deafheaven welcomed director Bryan Proteau into the studio to capture footage that would become this special sneak peek video, which premiered exclusively on Spin.com today.  The video, edited by Bryn Owens, showcases the band at their most natural state inside the confines of Atomic Garden Recording Studio in Oakland, CA.  Deafheaven vocalist George Clarke commented,  “Having the recording process openly viewed is strange and vulnerable, but with Bryan having a particular closeness with this band, his involvement really sold the idea and the project ended up being a fun and worthwhile experience. We’re happy to share this small glimpse into the making of Sunbather.”  Check the video out here.

Sunbather was recorded and engineered by Jack Shirley (Funeral Diner, Comadre) and designed by Nick Steinhardt (Touche Amore), Sunbatherdeals with the profound sadness found in the quest for one’s personal perfection, serving as an artistic lucid dream of warmth despite the stinging pain of life’s cruel idealism.

With opener “Dream House”, George Clarke’s tortured vocals familiarly intertwine with Kerry McCoy’s hypnotic guitar work before crashing into a wash of post-everything melody. This leads to the moving instrumental “Irresistible”, a track that carries a twisted indie-like sensibility buried beneath glittery layers of guitar and piano. However, it is in the title track and beyond where the maturation and growth of Deafheaven brightly shines. On “Sunbather”, they explore sonic peaks and valleys created by superb percussionist Daniel Tracy (new to the band for this recording). Daniel’s inclusion brings new dynamics to light as an urgent pulse to the swirling musical chaos, pushing bleak epic “Vertigo” and the dark emotional closer “The Pecan Tree” to new, awe-inducing heights. Without question Sunbather is Deafheaven at the peak of their creative strength and vision of their young existence; a 7-song, masterfully crafted work of art that will be renowned for years to come.

Deafheaven formed in San Francisco, CA in 2010 and immediately turned heads with the release of their 4-song demo.  The band signed to Boston-based Deathwish Inc. shortly thereafter and wrote and recorded 2011’s stunning debut LP Roads to Judah.  Deafheaven hit the road hard in support of RTJ – hitting 27 countries and touring alongside Godflesh, Alcest, Russian Circles and more – and closed out 2012 with a split release with Bosse-de-Nage on Flenser Records, featuring Deafheaven’s take on Mogwai’s “Punk Rock / Cody”, which was called “an incredible and emotional listening experience” by Exclaim!.  2013 will see Deafheaven releasing their second full-length album, Sunbather, on June 11th and touring the world once again support of it. Check out the tour dates for Deafheaven’s European tour with The Secret (Southern Lord) this April and May, as well as track list and release information for Sunbather, below.
