Well, this seems like a pretty fucking killer tour and like always, I will not be attending it. That blows, yes, but it should be pretty phenomenal for people who happen to be in the affected areas. Deafheaven are hitting the road with support from DNF and the almighty Lake of Blood with support from ACxDC and others on select dates. Here is a quote from the press release and you can see the dates after the jump.
San Francisco’s Deafheaven has been turning heads since the release of their Deathwish debut, Roads to Judah, this past April. The album has seen rave reviews from print and online publications (“a welcome evolution of metal that crushes and inspires in equal measures” – Philadelphia Weekly, “unites shoegazers and metalheads on dark, sorrowful and chaotic ground” – Youindie.com) and the band has been seen in magazines like Decibel, Metal Hammer, Hails & Horns and many more. Most recently, Deafheaven toured across the US with KEN Mode in support of the release and played a highly coveted set at this summer’s Sound & Fury festival in California. This September, Deafheaven will tour the West Coast with their friends in Lake of Blood and DNF, and will continue to play songs off of their genre-bending full-length Roads to Judah.
