Deafheaven have shared a third preview of their upcoming fifth album Infinite Granite in the form of dreamy, hazy new single In Blur

The song follows The Gnashing and Great Mass Of Color as the third release from the Californian band’s much anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Ordinary Corrupt Human Love. The five-and-a-half-minutes In Blur is described as “a fever dream of melody and weighted past.”

Directed by John Bradburn, the video for In Blur references the myth of Sisyphus, the Greek legend where the former king of Ephyra was condemned to push a huge boulder up a mountain forever.

Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Wolf Alice/Paramore) and engineered by Jack Shirley at his Atomic Garden East studio in Oakland Infinite Granite is due for release on August 20 via Sargent House. The album is available to pre-order now.

Frontman George Clarke says, “Infinite Granite is an idea of sinking into solid space. Fossilized. It was written during a period of heavy insomnia. The album feels blue from seeing the morning blue hour for months.”
