In 2020, Ego Kill Talent — Jonathan Dörr [vocals], Jean Dolabella [drums, guitar], Raphael Miranda [drums, bass], Niper Boaventura [guitar, bass], and Theo Van Der Loo [bass, guitar] — were confirmed for a Spring tour of South America with Metallica and Greta Van Fleet. The band was also set to perform the majority of the Danny Wimmer Presents Festivals in the US, to tour with System of a Down in Europe, and to perform at many key European Festivals. All told, EKT had booked 35 shows and 21 key festivals across three continents.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent global shutdown, the band, like so many others, had to revamp and revise its album release and tour plans.

Ego Kill Talent will perform their FIRST live performance together this year on Saturday, July 25 at 4pm ET/1pm ET.

Since their secret weapon is the LIVE SHOW, which often finds the members swapping instruments mid-song, Ego Kill Talent recorded a virtual tour that will include multiple shows to roll out supporting their first radio single, “The Call” from their upcoming album The Dance Between Extremes, which was recorded at the famed 606 Studio in Los Angeles. The Part 1, The Dance EP features the previously released songs “NOW!” and “Lifeporn.”

 São Paulo, Brazil quintet Ego Kill Talent have made friends with rock luminaries and has built up a beyond impressive touring history, having shared stages with genre behemoths like Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down, Shinedown, and more. Four of the band members are known to quickly trade instruments amongst themselves within their set and while playing, making for a thrilling spectacle of a performance.

Ultimately, Ego Kill Talent unite heavy music integrity and pop ambition, universal appeal and South American flavor, and tight songcraft and instrumental fluidity. Streamed over 20 million times as of 2020, awarded a coveted 5K! rating by international tastemaker KERRANG!, and handpicked as an opener for Foo Fighters, the band achieves a seamless balance on their second full-length record, The Dance Between Extremes, which will be released via BMG this year.

Ego Kill Talent formed back in 2014. A year later, they caught local radio play for the debut single “Sublimated” and landed on the bill for Lollapalooza Brazil. The track ignited streaming platforms worldwide and held a spot in the Top 5 of Spotify’s Viral Top 50 in the UK, France, and Portugal as well as in Brazil. Their self-titled 2017 full-length debut made waves around the globe as they supported System of a Down and Within Temptation in Europe and graced the stages of Download Paris (which scored the perfect KERRANG! review), Rock in Rio, Santiago Gets Louder, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Graspop Metal Meeting, Download Madrid, Nova Rock, and more. Due to overwhelming support, they won a 2018 Foo Fighters fan club poll and ended up supporting the rock icons and Queens of the Stone Age at five stadium shows across Brazil.

Ego Kill Talent are booked worldwide by William Morris Endeavor and are managed by C3.
