Brazilian avant-hardcore/noise trio DEAFKIDS will make their North American live debut next month in support of their Metaprogramação LP, released earlier this year through Neurot Recordings.
First, DEAFKIDS will join Bell Witch supporting Neurosis across the Eastern half of the continent from August 7th through 17th, with shows in Atlanta, Carrboro, Washington, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, and Chicago.
Now, a new run of tour dates has been confirmed, and immediately following the Neurosis dates, DEAFKIDS will join Big|Brave for a run of West Coast US dates. The newly announced trek will run from August 19th through 31st, with shows in Minneapolis, Bismarck, Rapid City, Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Oakland, and Los Angeles before coming to an end at HOCO Fest in Tucson.
A return to Europe is being booked for October. DEAFKIDS will soon issue new info on their upcoming material which they’ve been producing with Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke in recent weeks.

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.
“…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
