Last night (July 11th) in Phoenix, Arizona, Deafheaven launched their North American headlining tour in support of their excellent new album Ordinary Corrupt Human Love (which is due out tomorrow, July 13th). The polarizing genre-defying quintet are joined by the eclectic lineup of dark wave makeup mavens Drab Majesty and NYC industrial misanthropes Uniform on the run, as well as by photographer, videographer and Revolver contributor Sean Stout, who is documenting the cross-country trek. Below, see his evocative photos of the kick-off date's pre-show mundanity and ultimate high drama.
