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.

Deafheaven Live from Crowbar in Brisbane, Australia

Live video of “Dream House” and “Irresistible”  shot at Deafheaven's first ever show in Australia at CROWBAR in Brisbane on  January 8, 2014.


San Francisco’s Deafheaven have been drawing rave reviews and creating insider buzz since their inception. The band’s 201album Roads to Judah won the hearts of metal obsessives and even earned the attention of Pitchfork, the de facto hipster bible. Creative lynchpins and founding members George Clarke and Kerry McCoy found themselves, perhaps surreptitiously, in the midst of an exciting wave of American artists blurring the lines between post-metal, shoe-gaze and black metal (no one really knows what to call the sound, they simply acknowledge its beauty).

For all the plaudits their music drew, Deafheaven seemed destined to become the latest “best band most people have never heard of” - but then, in 2013, something very strange indeed happened.

Los Angeles show announced - April 25, 2014

Deafheaven, Earth and Marriages at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, CA on April 25, 2014 

Tickets go on sale - Saturday,  March 8th here


For George Clarke, pain – both psychic and physical — is part of his job as Deafheaven's singer and lyricist, and he wouldn't have it any other way.

His San Francisco band has won acclaim for its 2013 album, “Sunbather” (Deathwish), which toggles between sensual atmospherics and scorched-earth screeds, drawing a new map for heavy music that incorporates metal, the overdriven guitars of shoegaze, and acoustic tranquility. Clarke pushes his voice to extremes, even while prying loose intimate images and stories from his life.
