BRUTUS have debuted their new video and single “Cemetery“. Directed by THOU’s Mitch Wells. “Cemetery” is the follow up to Nest‘s lead single “War,” which was accompanied by a live video session that captured vocalist and drummer Stefanie Mannaerts jaw-dropping performance. The video caught eyes and ears worldwide, earning an overwhelming response from critics and fans alike. In case you missed it, watch it here.

BRUTUS‘s unique and genre-bending sound throws a net over post-rock, hardcore, metal and pop. On their forthcoming album, Nest, all their glorious highs and euphoric moments are present – highlighted in magnificent technicolor. Burrowed in amongst those triumphs are moments of reflection; the choices they have made in pursuit of their goals and the impact those choices have had on both themselves and those they have left behind in their nest. The arc of the album charts the friction between the band’s forward motion and their desire to maintain a connection to those back at home. It’s timeline of invincibility and doubt, of taking risks and letting go; a chronology of what they are and what they’ve done.

To describe the last two years as a whirlwind for the Belgian trio would be an understatement. 2017 saw the release of their debut album, Burst, which set them on a path of award nominations and ‘album of the year’ accolades. Having toured with Sargent House label mates Chelsea Wolfe and Russian CirclesBRUTUS also hit the road as main support to Thrice throughout Europe. Taking time out from the live circuit, the band headed to Vancouver to record Nest, once again returning to Jesse Gander known for his work distinguished work with White Lung and Japandroids at his Rain City studio back in September 2018.

BRUTUS is Stefanie Mannaerts (vocals / drums), Stijn Vanhoegaerden (guitar) and Peter Mulders (bass). Bound by a thread that was intangible to others, their shared experiences, both good and bad; Nest is the sound of a band who know how to use the strength of their bond to full effect, to use every part of themselves as an additional tool for conveying their message: take care of those in your own nest. BRUTUS find their places of comfort to be very different to the ones previously held dear; the nest they started out with is not quite the same one as they stand in today.

Nest will be released March 29, 2019 via Hassle in Europe and via Sargent House in the rest of the world. For pre-orders and further information go here. Stay tuned for North American tour dates.
