Deafheaven announce new album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, plus 2018 tour dates

on April 18, 2018, 1:46pm

Yesterday, melodic metal titans Deafheaven shared “Honeycomb”, their first new single in three years. It was also revealed via an iTunes listing that the official follow-up to 2015’s New Bermuda would be called  Ordinary Corrupt Human Love and arrive on July 13th through ANTI- Records. Now, the band has confirmed as much in a new press release.

The band again linked up with producer Jack Shirley for the album, which a statement notes will incorporate layered psychedelic vocals, jazz-inspired percussion, and intricate piano melodies.” The album’s title comes from writer Graham Greene’s seminal The End of the Affair, a 1951 novel centering around a trio of lovers and their accompanying obsessions, jealousies, and desires. The band says the album exudes a “hazy, yearning romanticism” that reflects the story.

See the album’s artwork and tracklist, as well as their full tour itinerary below.
