One year ago today.. Sunbather came out

Nick Steinhardt, who designed the artwork for Sunbather, sent us this and it reminded me of how much this last year has meant to us. Thank you to everyone. 


Deafheaven's George Clarke commands a crowd like he's commanding an army. When he wasn't shrieking into the microphone on Saturday afternoon, the lead screamer was beckoning the audience to yell in his place, demanding more and more each time, refusing to settle for any volume, no matter how ear-splitting. During the instrumental segments of last year's black-metal beauty Sunbather, Clarke moved his hands swiftly and wildly, cutting through the air with every crash and raising his palms up with every guitar swell, as if he was actually composing the chaos from the eye of the storm. K.M.

Deafheaven - The Wall - May 2, 2014 - Taipei, Tawain
all photos by Justim Pan Photography


It was a packed house (sold out) at the El Rey Theatre where Deafheaven made a pit stop on their North American tour. On their biggest headlining show to date, Deafheaven brought their ‘A’ game to the stage giving their lucky fans the experience of a lifetime. George Clarke’s formidable presence on stage is a sight to behold. His mannerisms resemble those of a sadistic prison guard crossed with an orchestra conductor yet at times he shows a peaceful side to him and a sense of vulnerability. If you dare get on stage with Clarke. he will personally make sure you promptly leave. The tones coming from Kerry McCoy and the rest of the band created an atmosphere that was downright intoxicating. They played so hard, drummer Daniel Tracy broke his snare drum in the middle of the set and had to borrow one from Earth’s drummer. Amidst the loudness and aggression, the band manages to carry the crowd to moments of serenity and solitude. Their fans, most of them anyway, are serious metal aficionados and not the “hipsters” some critics proclaim them to be. Supporting act Earth delivered a heavy dose of feedback and pinch harmonics to the audience. Marriages opened up for the night playing a short set of their indescribable music. I can’t wait to hear more from them.
