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.


Stream the DEAFKIDS/RAKTA collaboration at YouTube HERE.


Also see DEAFKIDS’ "Espirais da Loucura” video HERE, and read an intense track-by-track of the Metaprogramação LP by Neurosis’ Steve Von Till HERE.


DEAFKIDS’ tour with RAKTA continues into early May. DEAFKIDS will also make their way onto North American soil for their first time this Summer, having been confirmed to support labelmates Neurosis alongside Bell Witch across the Eastern US and Southeastern Canada from August 7th through August 17th.


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. Metaprogramação offers a vertiginous, sensory insight on these inner conflicts and aspects of the animal being. Do not allow yourself to be programmed.

 “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

“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

"Metaprogramação is a transformation for Deafkids, a startling piece of work which will set teeth firmly on edge. For the discerning, however, it adds a delightfully anarchic element to the usual Industrial-Electronica template" - GHOST CULT
