Brazilian experimental/industrial noise punk trio DEAFKIDS presents their intense third LP, and first full-length for Neurot Recordings, Metaprogramação. Tackling existential topics including socio-political angst and dystopian themes, depicted through an avant/artistic lens, and delivered with furious and energetic aggression, DEAFKIDS’ singular sound and manic style are an incredibly intriguing and challenging acts out there.
Metaprogramação offers a vertiginous, sensory insight on these inner conflicts and aspects of the animal being. Do not allow yourself to be programmed.
DEAFKIDS’ entire Metaprogramação album is now streaming on all digital platforms including Bandcamp HERE, iTunes HERE, and Spotify HERE.
DEAFKIDS will tour across Europe in support of the album this Spring, leading with two sets at Roadburn Festival April 11th and 12th. These shows will be followed by several weeks of shows, the tour lasting into early May, and the band joined by Rakta for the journey.
Also announced in recent days, DEAFKIDS will make their way onto North American soil for their first time this Summer, having been confirmed to support labelmates Neurosis alongside Bell Witch in August. The Eastern US and Southeastern Canadian dates run from August 7th through August 17th, with shows in Atlanta, Carrboro, Washington, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, and Chicago.
Watch for additional tour dates, several videos from Metaprogramação, and more from DEAFKIDS to be posted in the weeks ahead.

While DEAFKIDS’ previous release, Configuração Do Lamento, captured the group delving deep into their own diverse and discordant musical world, Metaprogramação pushes these elements to entirely new extremes. The band imprints a future-primitive psychic scenario into their music by weaving a fabric of electronic pulses, barrages of delay and noise, wailing guitars, and frenzied rhythms that ricochet aggressively between the speakers. Songs are urgent yet fluid, melting and dissolving into one another, culminating in a wild psychedelic journey that’s bound to reach one’s mind through the body while intoxicating both.
