On November 17th, one of contemporary metal's most talked about and trailblazing records will live again as Deafheaven's seminal Sunbather will be remixed/remastered by original producer Jack Shirley and available in Spacial Audio. Alongside its new musical face, the physical release will benefit from updated packaging including a re-release of the original typeface by way of Nick Steinhardt (Touché Amoré), deluxe color vinyl treatment with gatefold jacket, gloss varnish details, and 2 printed inner sleeves with unseen album-era photography. In short, it stands as a "must-own" release. This transcendental, emotional powerhouse arrives via Deathwish Inc. and comes celebrated by a 10th Anniversary Tour throughout North America.

When founding guitarist Kerry McCoy was asked about his feelings about the initial response to Sunbather, he responded:

“The easy answer was it was totally positive and overwhelming, but in actuality it was also kind of frustrating. We were grateful for the positive notes, but there were people who thought we were the worst thing to ever happen to metal and others who thought that we claimed to invent the genre. Neither were true.”
