Yesterday, Deafheaven announced via a cryptic teaser video that they were releasing a new album later this year. Today, the details of that album have emerged. The new album is titled New Bermuda, and it’s being released on Oct. 2 via Anti-. The band recorded the album live to tape in Oakland (at 25th Street Recording) and Palo Alto (at Atomic Garden Recording) with producer Jack Shirley. That’s the album’s artwork above, which features an oil painting by Allison Schulnik.
“New Bermuda,” as a concept, is described as “a new destination in life, a nebulous point of arrival, and an unknown future where things get swallowed up and dragged into darkness,” by frontman George Clarke in a press release. Check out the tracklist below.
New Bermuda follows 2013’s Sunbather.
