Hot on the heels of their new Metaprogramação LP, out now on Neurot Recordings, Brazilian experimentalists DEAFKIDS are currently embarked on their latest European tour alongside fellow Brazilians RAKTA, which kicked off at Roadburn. The bands present a new collaborative two-song EP which they recently recorded together and now issue as the tour gets into full motion.

With harsh noise and industrial elements seamlessly melded into a volatile and rambunctious hybrid of ethnic jazz/world music-influenced punk, DEAFKIDS thematically tackles existential socio-political topics and dystopian themes through their own artistic lens. Their singular sound and manic energy coalesce to form one of the most intriguing and challenging acts in recent years. Metaprogramaçãooffers a vertiginous, sensory insight on these inner conflicts and aspects of the animal being. Do not allow yourself to be programmed.
Metaprogramação is out now on LP, CD, and digital platforms via Neurot Recordings. Order the album via BandcampiTunesSpotify and at the Neurot webshop.

“…one of the most exciting bands I have heard in a very long time.” – Steve Von Till, Neurosis/Neurot
“…a fusion of future-primitive soundscapes, Afrobeat and tribal polyrhythms, and industrial wasteland electronica thematically investigating the concept of metaprogramming…” – Decibel Magazine
“Somewhere between Neurosis and Sepultura lies Brazil’s DEAFKIDS, a self-described ‘noise-punk’ outfit that more than lives up to that descriptor…” – Revolver Magazine
“Arranged with genuine cinematic vision and accuracy…it’s a DEAFKIDS record, from here on that means something.” – The Wire
“It’s hard to know where to start with an album as stunning as this. It’s noisy, it’s industrial, it’s pummeling, and it’s ultimately completely satisfying…a wondrous journey of noise that is ear shattering, danceable and gnarly at every turn. 9/10.” – Louder Than War
“Hook by hook by hook Metaprogramação is pure musical immersion… 8/10” – Metal Hammer
