Deafheaven Unveils New Track "Brought to the Water"

Acclaimed California based band Deafheaven have released the first new song "Brought to the Water" off their upcoming album New Bermuda which arrives October 2.

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 Sunbather, which the New York Times heralded as “an extremely seductive album” and NPR called “intensely personal and incredibly universal.”

The track “Brought to the Water,” with its intensifying interplay between dissonance and melody, offers an ideal introduction to the sound of New Bermuda and the next developmental step forward for Deafheaven. As vocalist George Clarke explains, “We wanted to share 'Brought To The Water' first because it gives a good idea of the overall sonic tone of the record and really evokes feelings that come with uprooting and throwing oneself into the complacent, monotonous routine of adulthood."

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 American beginning on October 15th at The Casbah in San Diego and wrapping up on November 21 in Los Angeles at The Roxy.
