“Deafbrick” Track Listing:

01. “Primeval I”
02. “Força Bruta”
03. “Sweat-Drenched Wreck”
04. “The Menace Of The Dark Polar Night”
05. “Máquina Obssessivo-Compulsiva”
06. “O Antropoceno”
07. “Mega-Ritual”
08. “Hyperkinetic Mass Disorder”
09. “Free Speech For The Dumb” (Discharge cover)
10. “Primeval II”

Petbrick’s Iggor Cavalera commented:

“We had so much fun doing the collab [at the Roadburn Festival] and there was a real chemistry between the five of us, so it seemed like a natural progression to actually get into a studio together and write a record.”

Deafkids added:

“It’s an honor for us to have taken part in this collaboration with Petbrick. When we had the opportunity, in the middle of a tour, to get together at Wayne‘s studio in London for two-and-a-half days to let the ideas flow, record things, and see what would happen, we couldn’t expect for a better result – a full album very rich on dynamics, sonic explorations, and unreached territories.

We were able to integrate ourselves in a way that doesn’t sound exactly like any of the bands alone, and this is very interesting in the sense of aesthetic and sonic freedom as it creates ramifications of the paths already taken, extending the steps of what has been and what is yet to come. To have the chance to co-create with Iggor and Wayne as musicians and producers – who are extremely kind, creative, open-minded guys with a long path of experience in music roads – was a very special process of sharing, hearing, and learning.

We also had Gordon from Terminal Cheesecake and Luminous Bodies and Matt from Casual Nun featured on two tracks, which was also amazing. We’re always very well received by these guys, bands and all these amazing people since our very first time in the UK, so it’s really nice to be extending this connection with this recording.”

The bands also discussed the project further over at The Quietus.

The group commented:

“We know. We know we’ve had some rough times, you and us. We haven’t always been honest with you, and you, well, you’ve taken comfort in the arms of some other “bands”. We don’t blame you, we know we haven’t always been the band you thought we could be. The truth of the matter is, well, we just didn’t know if we could be enough for you. You, you’re just so special, and we just want to make you the happiest Gloomelo you could be. We’re carrying a lot of baggage. We’ve had our hearts broken too many times. It’s not an excuse, it’s just, well, it’s just the truth.

This is it though. From this day forward we are gonna be here for you. We’re not gonna be staying out all night, running around, playing games. Not anymore. I want us to be together, and i’ll do anything it takes to hold onto you. I need you, baby. We’re gonna be the band of your dreams, and you can say goodbye to Mutoid Man, Isis(The band that you don’t need anymore), and Converge. You can take them out of your contacts, because Old Man Gloom is ready to commit to you for the rest of our lives. Just say it. Just say you’ll have us, and you’ll give us one more chance to show you we love you. We’re doing a West Coast tour starting Vancouver on May 21st, and our record will be out shortly before. This is the NEW us. We’re gonna be so happy, baby. I can’t wait to form a whole bunch of tiny side projects with you, boo. But here’s the thing, my car is in the shop, and I just need $150 to pick it up. And once I get the car, i’m gonna go see a guy that sells Juul cartridges out of his aunt’s mudroom that has a locked and loaded business opportunity for me. I also am looking into flipping houses, seems like easy money. I’m gonna make you so happy baby, just you wait!


5/21 – The Astoria, Vancouver BC
5/22 – The Crocodile, Seattle WA
5/23 – The Doug Fir, Portland OR
5/24 – Driving through the pacific north west and that weird methy part of NoCal and probably going an hour and a half out of our way to hit some health food store Aaron likes. I’ll probably be one day into An emotional breakdown. Definitely shoot me a text to check in on the 24th, ok?
5/25 – Starline Social Club, Oakland CA
5/26 – The Echoplex, Los Angeles CA
5/27 – Rebel Lounge, Phoenix AZ
5/28 – this will be the day where I ask why we didn’t play Denver or some shit. But then we’ll get to NM a day early and I’ll get sad because my Grandmas dead, but then I’ll remember how mean she was and how she put a homemade label from her typewriter on my high school girlfriends car that said “I’m a whore, try me!” And I will get less sad. And more sad, because that’s kinda hilarious.
5/29 Monolith on the Mesa Fest, Taos NM”
