Deafheaven has added Hide, Mary Jane Dunphe, Crushed, Gatecreeper, and Ringo Deathstarr to their upcoming Sunbather anniversary shows this November and December. The shows follow the release of a remixed and remastered version of Sunbather by original producer Jack Shirley due out November 17. Pre-orders are available here and tickets for the shows are available here.

"The easy answer was it was totally positive and overwhelming," said founding Deafheaven guitarist Kerry McCoy with a bit of a chuckle when asked about his feelings about the response to Sunbather. "But in actuality it was also kind of frustrating. We were grateful for the positive notes, but there were people who thought we were the worst thing to ever happen to metal and others who thought that we claimed to invent the genre. Neither were true."

"Honestly, Sunbather gave us a career," he added. "Before then we were working jobs and had these grandiose dreams, but that was the record that turned us into a real band. Because of that record, we ended up meeting a lot of people around the world that changed our lives and set us on the path we’re on now."
