Deafheaven – Metal Band
San Francisco metal band Deafheaven was founded by singer George Clarke and guitarist Kerry McCoy in 2010. After releasing a demo, the band was signed to Deathwish Inc. Their debut, Roads to Judah, was released in 2011 and Deafheaven embarked on a packed touring schedule, with stops at SXSW, Sound and Fury Festival, and support gigs for Russian Circles and KEN mode. They set off for Europe in 2012. Their breakthrough LP, Sunbather, arrived in 2013 and charted at #130 on the Billboard Top 200.
The current lineup solidified with the addition of drummer Daniel Tracy, guitarist Shiv Mehra, and bassist Stephen Lee Clark. In 2015, the band released the well-review New Bermuda LP. They continued to tour regularly with dates in Australia, Asia, Europe, and North America. This summer, the band will be performing at select dates in Europe and Mexico.Less
