Deafheaven are set to release a live album in celebration of their 10th anniversary.

The band were planning to record material on their 10th anniversary tour, which was recently postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. They'll now hit the studio to lay down a career-spanning set of songs to be released as a live full-length titled '10 Years Gone', albeit without an audience. Vocalist George Clarke explained in a statement:

"As part of our 10 year tour, we planned to record sets in Chicago toward a live album for fans while we work on new music. However, the last 24 hours since the tour cancelation have been a whirlwind while we rearrange our year and take these losses.

Touring is our sole livelihood, but we have to move forward through the unexpected. We’ve made some phone calls, gotten some exciting people on board and are going to give fans a glimpse of what we originally had in mind for the year while we work to reschedule tour dates.

We will be live recording a set of material from all our albums and releasing it digitally. In addition, we have started a pre-order for a special Double LP release on vinyl of this material slated for later this year, along with merchandise that was to be sold on the tour.

We don’t even have an album cover yet. There’s no press release. All I know is we’re moving this into immediate action and turning this massive set-back around. We don’t ask for handouts, but are hoping this special session can help generate some good energy while we all wait for the rescheduling."

Pre-orders for the vinyl release are available here — head here for Europe.
