Deafheaven document, ready Sunbather, tour (2013)

Throughout the duration of recording their new album Sunbather, Deafheaven welcomed director Bryan Proteau into the studio to capture footage that would become this special sneak peek video, which premiered exclusively on today.  The video, edited by Bryn Owens, showcases the band at their most natural state inside the confines of Atomic Garden Recording Studio in Oakland, CA. 
Sunbather was recorded and engineered by Jack Shirley (Funeral Diner, Comadre) and designed by Nick Steinhardt (Touche Amore), Sunbather deals with the profound sadness found in the quest for one’s personal perfection, serving as an artistic lucid dream of warmth despite the stinging pain of life’s cruel idealism.
