Deafheaven


#1

Over here in April while I’m away again. Gutted. Especially as they’re playing the Brudenell which will be awesome.


#2

Definitely up for the Brudenell date. Had a look at the dates on diymag.com where they refer to them as “black metal pioneers” lol!


#3

I hear they’re not even proper black metal.


#4

I “liked” your post until I realised that you meant you can’t come. That’s shit!

Seems a good guess that they’ll be back in the UK sooner rather than later though : )


#5

Just a great band, even better for how angry they make people.

Saw then play Soup Kitchn in Manchester, tiny venue, cracking gig


#6

When do tickets go on sale? Gorilla in Manchester will be fun


#7

ffs


#8

Tickets on sale now, try dice or songkick. Hope you get one!


#9

Cheers buddy. Yeah I’ll catch them at some point!


#10

Sorted. Ta!


#11

not coming to nottingham :frowning: …if only we had The UK’s Best Live Venue™…

Thanks for pointing this out. Me and my gf who mainly listens to hip hop/electro went to their last London date and left with out jaws on the floor.

Seriously moving and beautiful. I loved every second and couldn’t believe it was over when it was. I hope they’re able, Mogawai-esque, to build their own scene and support network around them.

Also: find it weird when people talk about the lead singer being dislikeable when he seems the most humble, down to earth (great) front man of recent years.


#13

If you had to chose one song to play to someone new to the band, what would it be?


#14

Dream house


#15

YEEEESSSSS only time I’ve seen them (October of 2015) was one of the best gigs in living memory - will definitely be heading to KOKO. Heard it’s a shit venue though - never been. Is it?


#16

It’s certainly not great but I’ve never found it as bad as others on here. The layout is a bit shit and the sound can be a little allovertheplace.


#17

Really? George is a really good guy in the interviews I see. He is a bit…odd on stage but its a performance. Kerry is a bit of a dick though


#18

Dream House or Sunbather.


#19

Dream House definitely. This band can be sold to, at least, Deftones-level metal fans on the basis of that song. It has the gnarly metal, the atmospherics, loud/quiet dynamics etc.

THEYRE PLAYING KOKO?! Jesus christ, I saw them at birthdays like a year ago
