Shoegaze-inflected blackened metal band Deafheaven have announced big 2020 touring plans to celebrate the group’s 10th anniversary. The 36-date trek is set to kick off on March 20th in Salt Lake City, Utah, and wrap on May 2nd in Vancouver, British Columbia. Inter Arma will play in direct support, while Greet Death and All Your Sisters will join the run on select dates. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 13th, at 10 a.m. local time.

“Come 2020, it’ll be 10 years since we released the Deafheaven demo on Bandcamp,” Deafheaven vocalist George Clarke commented. “To commemorate this, we’re planning special sets that include songs from all our albums. Joining us will be the great Inter Arma as well as Greet Death and All Your Sisters, two bands we’re excited about from Deathwish Inc. and The Flenser, the labels that supported us early on. We are very much looking forward to this last tour of the States before hibernating to work on new music. See you then.”

Deafheaven made serious waves and earned unprecedented critical acclaim with 2013 sophomore LP Sunbather. The quintet most recently released their fourth studio album, 2018’s Ordinary Human Corrupt Love, which garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance. See the band’s 2020 itinerary below.
