Deafheaven’s forthcoming LP Infinite Granite is coming August 20th via Sargent House, today they debut the final single from it along with the first official video from the album. “In Blur” is a fever dream of melody and weighted past. The album was written during a period of unrelenting insomnia leaving a smear of morning blue across Infinite Granite from seeing the morning blue hour for months. “In Blur” fully encapsulates that notion as does the video.

Directed by John Bradburn the video tips its hat to Sisyphus, the Greek Mythology story of rolling the boulder up the hill only for it to roll back down every time it neared the top. The song follows the first two singles “Great Mass of Color” and “The Gnashing.” Check out the video and the song below…

 The band has an upcoming 25 date tour with the first two shows this October in Berkeley and Los Angeles, CA.
