BRUTUS ANNOUNCE FIRST U.S. PERFORMANCES SINCE THE RELEASE OF HIGHLY ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM NEST – OUT NOW ON SARGENT HOUSENYC, LA, CHICAGO, LEVITATION, VOODOO + MORE CONFIRMED
REVEAL NEW LIVE VIDEO “SUGAR DRAGON

“A Revelation…Words don’t do it justice. They can’t. Words can’t capture NestNest feels like a primal howl, a raging fire, a force of nature. Describe it in those terms, though, and you’ve inadvertently erased the entire process – the discipline, the dedication, the painstaking, life-encompassing labor – required to create a work of art that feels like this.” STEREOGUM (Best New Albums of 2019)

“Their conscientiously constructed rock is filtered through punk, black metal, post-rock and post-hardcore lenses, and it’s centered on the sometimes cutthroat, sometimes crushingly beautiful lead vocals of Stefanie Mannaerts” PASTE (Essential Punk Albums of 2019)

“Potent and haunting, the dueling beauty of singer-drummer Stefanie Mannaerts’ evocative voice with the layered distortion of her stringed counterparts makes for not only a gorgeous album, but also a unique one – perhaps no one else so far this year has achieved such a refreshing sound.” REVOLVER (Best New Albums of 2019)

“The group still sits comfortably on the timeline of assaultive hardcore-meets-post-rock acts from Refused on through to White Lung, and Nestpolishes its punishing riffs and genre-bending explorations into a potent and cohesive whole.” AV CLUB

“Mannaert’s voice is a force of such terrifying, emotive power… Formidable and flawless… when Brutus lock into their groove, nothing can stop them.” KERRANG!

“It’s part ethereal wave, part post rock, part D-beat, and drummer/singer Stefanie Mannaerts’ truly soaring vocals take the genre-defying song to another level.” BROOKLYN VEGAN

“Talented and Inventive” METAL INJECTION

“A towering wall of sound, Stefanie’s glacial cries cut through layers of melody and gauze and her drum skills have the crowd in awe. Their future looks very bright indeed.” METAL HAMMER (UK)

“If this is the shape of punk to come, it’s far prettier and more unpredictable than we ever could have imagined.” TREBLE

Just off the heels of BRUTUS‘s monolithic sophomore release, Nest, the Belgian trio have finally confirmed their first string of U.S. performances. Highlights include LA, NYC, Chicago, NYC, Levitation in Austin, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans, Deftones’ Dia De Los Deftones Festival in San Diego plus more.
