  1. I forgot you're in Albany too! We need to meet up some time, man. Come see my band! Also, you're right. Nobody realllllllllllly exists in Delmar. It's all empty suburban shells. Also, if you guys haven't checked the setlist so far for this tour, be prepared. It's a monster.
  2. Delmar, NY right here! I swear, every time i go to a show I say "this is the last time I'm driving 3 hours by myself to see a band i love..." and then I do it again. And again. I drove 3+ hours in a snowstorm to see Appalaches in Burlington back in Feb. That was pretty epic. 4 hours to see Shy, Low in Salem, MA by myself in March. Sigh.
  3. real jealous of you guys getting to see them on this tour, it's going to be impressive. The dates in the Northeast are all weekdays which sucks, so I likely won't make it to any of them again. It's a bit annoying when bands ONLY play Boston and NYC. People exist elsewhere!
  4. Yeah that's how it works, we bundle the shipping from Europe and then I ship 'em out to whoever... it usually allows us to all save at least $9-10 depending on how many we get. I wish you guys had seen this earlier because now I'm getting all sorts of requests haha. We could have saved even more because shipping was 18.90 euros regardless of quantity. Imagine.... 3 euros shipping for a record! But sadly it does look like this variant is sold out

    PO NOW: Tides of Man- Every Nothing

    Yeah i mean, I'm not buying this until I hear the whole album. $36 is a lot for a blind purchase. I'm sure it's great, and I'm sure they'll sell out of everything eventually. What are you talking about with the free shipping though?
  6. I love Steely Dan and this is hilarious. Their site on mobile keeps switching up to Neil Young on me though haha, which I guess is okay too. Hopefully it won't matter and this will sound killer on all variants. I'm going to wait and see once ours arrives.
  7. So, this will be cool as fuck. https://theellentheatre.secure.force.com/ticket#details_a0S0W00000lorjwUAA I hope some of you are somewhat close to this and can go!!!
  8. Do you mean the green with black smoke? I did a group buy for that one, but the order has already been put through. KRM doesn't amend orders, but I suppose I can message them and see if they can refund me and I place another order as long as they have the stock. That one comes to $32.50 shipped, including media mail. I'm debating getting a black 180 copy of this though just for listening sake.... because man, this album is good.
  9. lolwut at those comments... but i'm glad they're okay. The Jakob drop is going to hurt like a mofo... I just hope they press enough because they're going to need about 2k at least of each record to satisfy demand. If they pull something like only 300 copies of each record I'm going to explode.
  10. I think people are comparing this to Sunbather because it's so uplifting and full of major key jams, as well as the fact that they have "interlude" songs in between the black metal stuff. Sunbather is it's own thing, though. If your tastes are the early material, you're probably not going to like this album because this album is full of major key bliss jams, not unhinged aggression serving as a catharsis for personal struggles and pain. As they talked about in the interview, the band is healthy now. This is what healthy, happy Deafheaven sounds like. I'll take it, and more please!
  11. I can't argue with this. That piano, man.... Also, I listened to this album again today on my bike ride. It's fucking incredible, but I must say... I am agreeing with the critics of Night People. It's not that the song is bad, although it seems a bit under-developed... it is just SO glaringly out of place compared to the rest of the stuff. I think it would have fit better had they bracketed it with 2 interlude segments that took us down from the guitar-based stuff into that song. On another note, I am LOVING the sound-scapey pedal work that they're using. Lots of reverse guitar, and then they do something on Worthless Animal that I'm not exactly sure what it is yet, but it kind of sounds like when you mess with a delay pedal's delay time knob and it whips the repeats around, messing with their pitch. But man, what an uplifting record. I love it. If Night People was segued into better, this would be a perfect record. Maybe I'll love that hard turn more in time, but it just seems so haphazardly placed at the moment.
  12. Yeah, this. This album is the pretty, happy, we're grown up and life is good Deafheaven. All that old, angry stuff came from struggle and pain. They're in a good place, and it comes through in the music. Personally, I'd rather them make happy records like this than New Bermuda which you could tell was rushed and came from a less creatively healthy place. But the black metal will always be there underneath, so maybe it will grow on the people who live for tracks like Violet and Vertigo. I never thought I'd ever feel this way, but this album might top Sunbather for me. Inconceivable.
  13. Oh this is fucking good. The opening track is something I've been waiting for them to write forever, a nearly full clean song (instrumentally). The piano is gorgeous. Love the vocal samples too, it reminds me so much of the sample used on "Gamemaster" by Paul Oakenfold/Lost Tribe (90's trance which I'm sure you guys will all hate!). Deafheaven is all grown up now. I love it. This is wonderful. I hope they bring "You Without End" to the stage.
  14. Man, that new single is really Oceansize-y! I like it! Also, i'm not sure that the "live" video is live audio... even though its still cool to see all of Mike's crazy chords he uses. Hopefully this makes it stateside somehow... I don't want to pay that shipping cost. This comes to $56.07 in USD. That's a lot.

    Yeah kinda bummed I missed the /80 but I just want it to sound good, so I'll probably get the bone eventually. I do like the splatter. I was at work still while this went live. So it goes. Remember guys that A1KA also probably has these in poly lined inner sleeves. They don't fuck around on quality. So, you're going to get a good product for the price.
