Press Kit

Bio
FUCK conventions and FUCK expectations.
Dutch sax/drums duo Dead Neanderthals will slap you in the face with their new wave of Dutch heavy jazz and you won’t look pretty afterwards. These dudes will serve you a mix of harsh improvisation, drone and metal and play it with the intensity of an erupting volcano.
They released albums on Utech Records, Gaffer Records, Relative Pitch Records and Grindcore Karaoke.
Dead Neanderthals did shows with Shining (No), Napalm Death, Staer, MoHa!, Gum Takes Tooth, Jucifer and Orthodox just to name a few, and played festivals like Incubate, Le Guess Who?, Roadburn, Solomacello, Gaffer Fest, Utech Records Music Festival and many more.
