Deafheaven recently played Aftershock Festival and California's Humboldt University with Carcass and Inter Arma, and that ridiculously good triple bill will begin their tour in proper this month. As mentioned, there are NYC-area shows at Asbury Park's Stone Pony on November 17 and Long Island's Emporium on November 20. Tickets for NJ and LI are still available.
Deafheaven also have a couple special shows surrounding that tour. They'll hit San Antonio on Sunday (11/6) and that show is co-headlining with HEALTH. That's a pretty sweet pairing, considering Deafheaven have obviously won over plenty of non-metalheads, and we've argued that HEALTH would actually go over pretty well with a metal audience. The show's presented by the same people who are throwing Sound on Sound Fest in McDade, TX this weekend, which HEALTH also play.
In early January, Deafheaven play an FYF-presented show at LA's Echoplex, and it'll be the first time ever that they perform music off all three of their albums. Leave them your requests here. Their only other scheduled 2017 appearance at the moment is Roadburn. Updated dates are listed below.
The band is also finally starting to think about LP4:
