San Francisco band Deafheaven’s forthcoming LP Infinite Granite is coming August 20th via Sargent House, today they debut the final single from it along with the first official video from the album. “In Blur” is a fever dream of melody and weighted past. The album was written during a period of unrelenting insomnia leaving a smear of morning blue across Infinite Granite from seeing the morning blue hour for months. “In Blur” fully encapsulates that notion as does the video. Directed by John Bradburn the video tips its hat to Sisyphus, the Greek Mythology story of rolling the boulder up the hill only for it to roll back down every time it neared the top. The song follows the first two singles “Great Mass of Color” and “The Gnashing.”
The band has an upcoming 25 date tour with the first two shows this October in Berkeley and Los Angeles, CA. The rest of the tour kicks off in Phoenix on February 22, 2022 wrapping at Treefort Music Festival on March 24th making stops in Austin, DC, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Toronto, Denver, Seattle and more (full dates below). Tickets are on sale now and you can go to deafheaven.com for more info.
Infinite Granite is yet another giant leap forward for Deafheaven – a band that has been defying genre conventions for the past decade. With production from Justin Meldal-Johnsen, known for his stellar work with M83, Wolf Alice, Paramore, Metric, among others, Deafheaven embarks on a new chapter of defiant beauty and their most goosebump-inducing album to date. Jack Shirley, who recorded all the previous Deafheaven albums, remained on board to engineer part of Infinite Granite at his Atomic Garden East studio in Oakland, CA with additional engineering and mixing coming from nine-time Grammy Award winner Darrell Thorp (Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Beck).
