The new Deafheaven album, New Bermuda, comes out October 2nd on ANTI-. The track “Brought to the Water” has already been released, and now “Come Back” has been made available for streaming below. This will be the band’s first new studio album since 2013’s Sunbather, and their first with ANTI-.
Vocalist George Clarke spoke with Metal Hammer about the direction of New Bermuda,
“The songs are less airy and more riff-focused. More concise. There’s a lot more packed into each song than there was on Sunbather, which is more of an open-sounding record. This is more urgent and tight. We decided to go back and start listening to the stuff that got us into metal in the first place: early Metallica, Slayer, Testament, Vio-lence and all that Bay Area thrash stuff. We took a lot of that and threw it back into the record, utilising it in a way that was appropriate for Deafheaven.”
Deafheaven will embark on a North American tour shortly after the release of New Bermuda. Kicking off in mid-October, they’ll be out with Sweden’s Tribulation, and Envy for a few dates.
