Sweden's God Mother have announced that they've signed to US label Party Smasher, founded by Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan.

Weinman states: "For some reason, out of all the European countries producing independent punk and heavy music, it was always the bands from Sweden that made the noise even us arrogant pricks in the United States had to notice. To be completely honest, after 20 years of touring the world and playing thousands of shows with thousands of bands, it is hard to impress me. But Sweden has done it again. God Mother is an undeniable force majeure that demands attention like bands did in the old days, by just being that fucking good. Torch, officially passed!"

The band originally formed in 2012 and previously released Maktebov in 2015. They'll join Dillinger Escape Plan on a European tour later this year and are expected to released the second album, and Party Smasher debut this fall.

God Mother will support The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Number 12 Looks Like You on a European tour in August:

Deafkids join Neurot

Neurot Recordings has agreed to release Configuração Do Lamento from Deafkids on October 6. The release will be on 10" vinyl and on CD.

"I first read about Deafkids when I saw a headline from Cvlt Nation that read, 'This Band Sounds Like No Other!' My cynical nature believed that to be a tall order, so I decided to call their bluff and clicked on the stream... MIND BLOWN. I was not prepared for how much I would love this record. Raw, powerful, and explosive heavy psych," says label founder and Neurosis member Steve Von Till.
