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.
