Exmortus Star in Commercial for the Virgin Mobile Galaxy S5
Sure, sure, the album art for Deafheaven’s Sunbather was featured in advertising for the Apple iPhone 5c… but was the band actually in the commercial? Performing an original song they wrote specifically for the ad, no less? No. No, they were not.
So, Deafheaven, consider yourselves one-upped by neo-thrashers Exmortus. I have no idea how the hell they ended up in this spot, but I’m all for it, ’cause a) awesome band making some dough = ability to make more killer music, and b) awesome band in commercial makes commercial 100% less irritating.
