Fans got a surprise this week when Deafheaven pre-orders went live. If you pre-ordered the album, you got a high quality digital download instantly ahead of release. If that’s not an incentive, I don’t know what is. Now those of us not committed enough to purchase something before giving it a test drive first can get a taste of the post-black metallers’ opus over at Pitchfork!
I’ve only heard the record once, but it is easily their best work yet. I would have loved to hear more piano present on the band’s previous work, but by the time the final track ‘The Pecan Tree’ explodes into its finale, you can’t argue! Stream the album at this location and if you feel so inclined, you can pre-order the record at Deathwish, Inc and this other place. Save a vinyl copy for me, will ya? I don’t get paid until tomorrow.
Sunbather is out June 11th on Deathwish, Inc.
