US heavy music innovators Deafheaven are hitting our shores this February, for headline events at Wellington's Valhalla and Auckland's Galatos. Revered for their uniquely intense blend of black metal, shoegaze, thrash and post-rock, the five-piece formed in San Francisco 2010 and now have four studio albums under their belt, including this year's powerful opus Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, which features a collaboration with US gothic-folk / doom queen Chelsea Wolfe. Their recordings and visceral live performances have garnered praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum and Rolling Stone - don't miss your chance to experience Deafheaven in the flesh, here's the details...

Press release:

Formed in San Francisco in 2010, DEAFHEAVEN (vocalist George Clarke, guitarists Kerry McCoy and Shiv Mehra, and drummer Dan Tracy) made their debut in 2011 with album 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.

Known for their transcendent live shows and united by their sheer ferocity, DEAFHEAVEN are poised on the edge of an emotional apocalypse. With tortured shrieks and immersive guitar explosions, DEAFHEAVEN music is not made for the everyday. Their first NZ tour is in support of Ordinary Corrupt Human Love album and will be appearing at two shows only.
