Deafheaven will hit the road for a tour this summer, snagging dates with Marriages as part of a full campiagn in celebration of their new LP, Sunbather. Full tour schedule is below, and you can look for the bands to team with NOTHING for a show at Saint Vitus on July 2. Info on tickets, which will set you back $12, is on the way.
Sunbather, the band's new LP, is due on June 11 via Deathwish Records. Invisible Oranges followed the band into the studio during the recording. Stream a track from that effort below and look for them at a town near you.

SXSW gets underway today (3/13) in earnest, with 83,207 bands* playing SXSW this year. Trying to figure out who to see can be an overwhelming feeling. (Actually, just standing on 6th St. on Friday night is an overwhelming feeling.) Hopefully this post will give you some inspiration if you're among the throngs of people. Or maybe just some new stuff to listen to if you're not there.
Of course you could just hang out at all our day parties (our first starts at noon today!) and evening showcases, as we're really proud of our line-ups. But there are bands who we are pumped to see who aren't playing too. So here are 40 bands we're genuinely pumped to see in Austin this week. We made a Spotify playlist of all the bands (at least the ones on the service) you can stream below.
Check out our list below...
*not the actually number of showcasing bands. But it feels accurate.
Nothing's noisy odes nod their head to My Bloody Valentine and the soaring epics of M83, which is evident in "The Dives (Lazarus in Ashes)," the band's new video from the Downward Years to Come EP out now on A389 Records. Check that out below for the first time. The band (mems of Horror Show) are currently on the road with the similarly great Whirr, touring toward the annual clusterfuck called SXSW where they'll play three shows including the massive "March Madness" triple-stage bill featuring names as varied as Power Trip, Mutilation Rites, Kill the Client and more. Full details on that show, which goes down on Friday (3/15) at Club 1808, are HERE.
All dates and that video is below.

Though the band passed through these parts a few weeks ago with the similarly great Nothing (who have a new LP and play A389), Philadelphia darkwavers Night Sins (mems Salvation/Mother of Mercy who also have a new LP) will play the Rituals party at K&M tonight (11/29 at 225 N.8 St) alongside an appearance from fellow Philly band Hot Guts. The party is FREE.
Speaking of Nothing, the band recently released a video for "Downward Years To Come" and you can check that out below.

In the wake of the sell-out of A389 2013 in Baltimore, the label has expanded the two-day fest into a full extended weekend! A389 Anniversary will kickoff with a pre-fest show at Ottobar on 1/17/13 featuring Integrity, Withdrawal, Vilipend and Dead Gods , then come to a close with a Sunday matinee on 1/20/13 at Charm City Art Space with Left for Dead, Iron Reagan, God's America and Eddie Brock.
In addition to the previously discussed Friday/Saturday shows at Ottobar, Saturday (1/19) will now feature a matinee at Sidebar with Despise You, Gehenna, Dead in The Dirt, Ancient Shores and WarXGames AND an afterparty with Nothing (who recently toured). None of the newly announced shows will have advanced ticketing; you can only buy them at the door. Full show details are below.
Catharsis has only one show during A389 festival, so what does that mean? Could a tour be in the works?
In other A389 news, the label will release Devoid of Everything, which collects Left for Dead's entire 1996-97 studio output remixed from the original 1/4" multi-track reels. Check out the art above and you can stream a track below. Left for Dead members went on to play in bands like Cursed, Haymaker, Pick Your Side, Burning Love, and many many more. This rare one-time reunion (I was assured!) is not to be missed. Check out some thoughts on the reunion via Chris Colohan here.
If you're wondering who Iron Reagan is, the band is prepping to release their 20-track debut Worse Than Dead via A389 in 2013. The band features half of Municipal Waste and members of Darkest Hour and you can stream their demo below alongside details of the A389 festivities.

As discussed, gothic post-punk crew Night Sins (mems of Salvation, Mother of Mercy) are out on the road with A389 signees Nothing, logging their first date on the road last night as part of their joint tour together. Much like Nothing, Night Sins are also proudly welcoming a new baby, the New Grave LP freshly birthed via Avant! Records. Check out the video for "Playing Dead" and the track "Wild Eyes," is making its debut here.
All streams and tour dates are listed below.

A389 Records is known for their annual whopper of a festival (sold-out!) populated by some of the vicious hardcore miscreants on the label, but maybe that mindset is changing. Between the recent Anne releases and some forthcoming efforts, A389 is showing a different side of the meaning of heavy.
Shoegazers Nothing are the latest addition to A389's roster, and are gearing up for a new release due later this fall. Preorders for Downward Years to Come hit on October 31 (spooky!) and you can hear the title track below for the first time.
The Philadelphians are touring the East Coast in the tail end of October in the weeks leading up to the release, roping in support from Night Sins as part of a US/Canadian campaign. The shoegazers hit St. Vitus on October 23 with NYC's Italian Horn.
All tour dates are listed below, along with the track stream.
