Emerging Brazilian rock group Ego Kill Talent have signed a global recordings partnership with BMG to release their forthcoming new studio album.
Recently performing for their second time at the Rock In Rio music festival, the band is currently recording their second album, and first with BMG, recorded at the Foo Fighters’ famed 606 Studios.
Their signing marks the first international recordings deal with a Brazilian artist, signed out of the recently founded BMG Brazil, to be distributed and marketed on a global scale within BMG.
The group’s upcoming new album is the follow-up to their 2017 self-titled debut which became a Top 50 Viral Spotify release in the UK, France, Portugal and Brazil and has since racked up over 20 million plays on streaming platforms.
The band will be supporting Metallica on their Brazilian tour in April and will be making their US debut on several key festivals in May.
In addition, they will be supporting System of a Down in Europe on select dates in 2020.
“We decided to go with BMG not only because of their label mentality, which is great. But also because of the team they have.”
