New Deaf Club EP, new Deaf Club video

New Deaf Club EP, new Deaf Club video

Why editorialize when the label blast describes a band like this?

Deaf Club is a savage sound bath dripping with sardonicism: a blastbeat-centric hardcore punk assault channeling crust, thrash, and grind (un)sensibilities. Succinct  pauses, surreal frequencies and effects, breakneck pace and sharply hurled vocals characterize the band’s aesthetic, which seems as though it is rooted in a sort of nasty-sound-meets-highbrow- message ethos.

The band has a new EP, Contemporary Sickness, out on Oct. 4 via Three One G, and they just released a video for the as-described-in-sound "Boyfriends of Christ" shared after the bump.

The band features Justin Pearson (The Locust, Dead Cross, Planet B), Brian Amalfitano (ACxDC), Scott Osment (Weak Flesh), Jason Klein (Run With The Hunted), and Leo Ulfelder (Fissure). The EP will be available on limited vinyl plus on digital platforms.
