About Brazil:

Listen | Watch Video

Indiana's Brazil was formed in Muncie as London in the summer of 2000 by the brothers Jonathon and Nicholas Newby. In early 2001 the band renamed themselves Brazil, inspired by the Terry Gilliam film of the same name. After mailing out a round of demos, the band signed a small contract with Fearless Records who released the Dasein EP, later releasing their 2004 debut album A Hostage and the Meaning of Life.

Produced by Alex Newport (Bloc Party, At the Drive In), Hostage featured 12 tracks of what some called a loose variant of "post-punk" that dealt with lyrical themes of technology, dehumanization, and frustration. Musically, it borrowed from complex genres such as progressive rock and classical music, as well as the abrasive aesthetic of punk, and the ethereal guitar sounds of shoegazer pop and space rock.

Hostage received nearly universal acclaim on release, and after countless tours with the likes of Sparta, My Chemical Romance, MeWithoutYou, Coheed and Cambria and many others, the band quickly ascended to the national stage, later working with Dave Fridmann to co-produce 2006's The Philosophy of Velocity. Brazil played their last official show in 2007.

Since then, the former band members have gone on to other projects such as Seaside Caves (NJ), Maravich, and JC Autobody. August 30th will mark the first time in over a decade that the band members have played together.
