Deafheaven Announce New Album 'Ordinary Corrupt Human Love'

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.
