Carregando... Aguarde...


Asfixia Social is a band with Punk Rock, Reggae and Hip Hop influences, with freedom ideology, not limited to an specific style, flirting with ROCK, RAP, SKA, HARDCORE, BRAZILIAN MUSIC, and much more, in a true crossover of references that dialogue with the authenticity of the streets. Like they say themselves: THE SOUND IS FROM THE STREETS TO THE STREETS!

Those who know the underground scene have probably seen Asfixia Social arriving in a graffiti-covered Kombi for always energetic shows. After releasing the albums "Da Rua pra Rua" and "Sistema de Soma", the band released the EP "Ao vivo na Showlivre" and concluded their second European tour. They promise to release new singles in the second half of 2023: "Tiro no Escuro" (feat MV Bill) and "Traffic Lights" (feat John Keithley - D.O.A.), which set the stage for their new album of original songs in 2024!
