Bangladeafy biography
Jon EHLERS and Atif HAQ had met in late 2006 at an open improv session in Smithtown, NY (to give a background on the caliber of musicians participating in these sessions, Billy RYMER, who later became the drummer of DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN was present). Jon and Atif both had a penchant for playing loud and fast so they immediately clicked and formed THE WOOLGATHERING, a bizarre video game influenced 4 piece band with Jon primarily playing fretless bass.

THE WOOLGATHERING inevitably fell apart but Jon and Atif used the opportunity to start fresh and continue pushing their respective limits, thus beginning BANGLADEAFY in late 2009. Rehearsals were held in a sketchy Brooklyn warehouse after work hours. The band name is a portmanteau combining the words Bangladeshi and Deaf, reflecting Atif's Bangladeshi heritage and Jon's sensio-neural hearing loss.

BANGLADEAFY's first full length release This Is Your Brain On Bugs was released independently in 2011. This release is considered a demo album and has a comedic element throughout.

The Briefcase EP was released in 2013 on Nefarious Industries and has received positive acclaim across numerous online publications domestically and internationally including, and Decibel. This release is texturally dense and carries a more serious tone as Jon applied his knowledge of piano and synth modeling to the recording process. Jon can be seen performing synth and bass, sometimes simultaneously, in their live performances. Occasionally, they perform with a trumpet player. In 2013 they toured with CAR BOMB, TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR and RESOLUTION 15.

Jon's bass playing style combines various techniques such as polyharmonic tapping and slapping. Atif's drumming combines his applied knowledge of world music into a louder and faster dynamic. Their shared influences include Zach Hill, Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Doors and Squarepusher.
