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. Fueled by he onslaught of society’s insanity and driven mad by tinnitus, Justin Pearson (The Locust, Dead Cross, Planet B), Brian Amalfitano (ACxDC), Scott Osment (Glassing, Planet B), Jason Klein (Run With The Hunted, JR Slayer) approach music as a chance to confront our collective sicknesses. The band initially released their debut EP, Contemporary Sickness, as well as a Remix cassette EP of bonus remixes via Three One G in 2019.
Although Contemporary Sickness delivered its own blastbeat-fueled urgency in message and tone, their debut full-length Productive Disruption, released in 2022, ventured deeper into the abyss. Having had time to stew in the cesspool of two years of pandemic and mutating into its newest variant, the album presented a death threat to some, a love letter to others.
Most recently, the band released Bad Songs Forever, an EP on Three One G Records. Here, Deaf Club yet again confidently emerged angrier, evolved, more focused and thus, more dangerous. Since then the band has been continuously touring primarily across America, while also playing the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and sharing the stage with bands such as Converge, Melt-Banana, John Waters, Negative Approach, Napalm Death, Unbroken, and Saetia.
