Split Works Brings Deafheaven To China; Guest: Never Before

This summer, Deafheaven embarks on a worldwide tour that will jar the foundations of some of China's greatest livehouses. With their hybrid of black metal, Pitchfork calls them a "modern classic" bound to forever change the landscape of black metal, while Stereogum boldly claims their sophomore album, Sunbather as "very much a masterpiece." Split Works have lined up two stops in May for metal-heads in Beijing and Shanghai. 

The group formed in February 2010 in San Francisco by vocalist George Clarke and guitarist Kerry McCoy. After rave reviews of their first demo drop, Clarke and McCoy recruited three additional musicians - bassist Derek Prine, guitarist Nick Bassett of the shoegaze band Whirr (formerly Whirl), and drummer Trevor Deschryver, who responded to an ad on Craigslist, to form a five-piece group. Newly honed Deafheaven played their first shows in July 2010. A switcheroo brought in current members drummer Korey Severson and Joseph Bautista (also a member of Whirr) on guitar. 

Their musical style is what gets critics so excited. Instrumentation leans towards shoegaze and post rock while vocals scream and hiss in respect to black metal's best bands. Founding Deafheaven member McCoy describes Sunbather as being "faster, darker, a lot heavier and far more experimental" than debut album Roads to Judah. We are a bit excited (and a little scared) to present a rare foray into the dark side. Don't hold back. 

Pm 9 // Rmb 140 (door) / 100 (presale | stop at midnight at YGYS bar on 8th of May)
