Deafheaven Announce Australian Tour

Deafheaven's new album, New Bermuda, comes out Oct. 2.

San Francisco-based black metal band Deafheaven have announced that they will be touring Australia in June.

The announcement follows the groups’s addition to the lineup of the VIVID LIVE festival, which will take place throughout Sydney from May 27 to June 13. The lineup also includes acts such as New Order, Björk, Antony & The Johnsons and Oneohtrix Point Never.

This will be Deafheaven’s first Australia tour since 2014, and the first since the release of their third album New Burmuda. The band incorporates elements of black metal and shoegaze into their dense sound, making for a visceral and transcendent listening experience – along with what must surely be one of the weirdest fan bases in metal.

Tickets for shows outside Sydney are now on sale through Handsome Tours. Check out the tour dates below:
