San Franciscan metallers Deafheaven have released the new single The Gnashing, taken from their forthcoming album Infinite Granite.

Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen, who has previously worked with the likes of M83, Wolf Alice, Paramore and Metric, Infinite Granite is set to arrive on August 20 via Sargent House.

Following the previously-released single Great Mass Of Colour, Deafheaven have shifted direction as they adopt fully clean vocals against a shoegaze/black metal-inspired soundscape of shimmering, intricate guitarwork.

Starting off with two previously-announced 2021 shows in LA and Berkley, the band have also shared details on a 25 date US tour for 2022, which will kick off in Phoenix on February 22, before finishing up at the Treefort Music Festival on March 24.  Tickets go on sale tomorrow, July 9 at 10am local time.
