Post-metal band Deafheaven have shared a new song, a non-album B-side from their 2018 record Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, called “Black Brick.” As Stereogum pointed out, the Bay Area band explored a number of subgenres like shoegaze and post-rock on Ordinary Corrupt Human Love but return to their black metal roots on “Black Brick,” which is instantly recognizable as a classic metal track. Listen to Deafheaven’s “Black Brick” in the video above.
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love arrived in July of 2018. The album spun two singles, “Canary Yellow” and “Honeycomb,” with “Canary Yellow” showcasing the band’s lighter, post-rock sensibilities. “Honeycomb” is heavier and garnered the band a Grammy nod for Best Metal Performance. You can listen to both tracks below. Ordinary Corrupt Human Love is the follow up to Deafheaven’s 2015 album New Bermuda and 2013’s Sunbather.
In late 2018, Deafheaven announced a co-headline tour with like-minded band Baroness as well as Zeal & Ardor. The tour kicks off on March 8 in Houston and will see the metal bands throughout the country including Seattle, Denver, Cleveland and New York City among others. The tour wraps up on April 14 in Philadelphia. Click here for a complete list of Deafheaven and Baroness 2019 dates.
