At last year’s Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee, we pegged Brazilian psych rock outfit Boogarins as one of the bands most likely to blow up. With their surprise (!) new album, Lá Vem a Morte, set to drop this Friday (June 9th), that fuse may just be ready to ignite.

The unannounced record comes shortly after the band released their first-ever English language single, “A Pattern Repeated On”. That track featured guest vocalist John Schmersal, but Lá Vem a Morte finds the band returning to Dinho Almeida’s exclusively Portuguese lyrics. But even if you don’t speak the language, the message is clear: This is an album that is begging you to confront your cynical ways and reconcile them with the realities of the world around you, whether those truths are “good” or “bad.”

Perhaps the band puts it best themselves:

“Maybe it’s always been this way. But it seems that we are living in a time where you might feel pretty close to an unhappy ending, inside the chaotic situation of the nowadays world. Relationships lose their meaning. Cynicism is not just a feeling anymore. It is something solid, that hurts every time you try to consider that your wishes need to respect someone else’s lives. Every day, you don’t really want to wake up. The confusion of dark dreams is more pleasant than the weak form you assume day-by-day. Being attacked in so many ways and directions, that you don’t known the real reason you put yourself in this situation. These songs are a reflection of the lack of sensibility in which we live. Maybe it’s time to be strong, throw away the hypocrisy and face the bad and the good feelings at once… and find some deep truth besides the infinite superficiality of our days.​​”
