About this album

Sunbather is the second studio album by the American black metal band Deafheaven. The Jack Shirley-produced album was released on June 11, 2013 through Deathwish Inc. Sunbather was recorded in January 2013. The cover artwork for Sunbather was designed by Nick Steinhardt of Touché Amoré who also designed the band’s 2011 debut album Roads to Judah. The pink and orange colors on the cover are meant to resemble the color seen on the inside of one’s eyelids when laying in the sun. The inspiration to have the title Sunbather written out in a simple, block formation was drawn from Pulp’s 2001 album We Love Life.

    SUNBATHER gets better with every listen. Maybe there is a new favourite on its way. Instrumental would be wonderful, too.

    It's pretty much as funny as when someone re-arranged the lettering to say " EAT HER ASS"

    @ClothesOptional: The two bands have almost nothing in common. Shut up.

    @ilovemusix, pretty much. Just the whole "hipster" annoys me. It's like the word Hipster is really abused today.

    When you stop caring about genres then the magic starts :)

    No no, I'm just saying Deafheaven's sound could depend on what different music taste everyone has. I'm not saying I'm right about this, since EVERYONE has something different. Either that or I'm DAMN tired.

    It could depend on what each person thinks.

    Black metal doesn't have to be like that. It can expand, like ALL Music. Sunbather is sort of post-black metal (as some call it). I am so tired of being hating on this album (or the band in general), when I don't know, Fucking ALCEST did music like this. Either expand your brain or go listen to the bands you mentioned.
