Brutus power into 2023 by sharing a new live video of ‘BRAVE’ alongside news of a new UK and European autumn headline tour which includes their biggest London show to date at Islington Assembly Hall. It comes as they prepare to embark upon a big summer of major festivals which include UK dates at Download, 2000trees and ArcTanGent.
‘BRAVE’ is one of the band’s favourite songs from last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Unison Life’ album. This new video was recorded on the final day of sessions for ‘Unison Life’ at DAFT Studios in Malmedy, Belgium, in January 2022.
Vocalist and drummer Stefanie Mannaerts says, “When recording a new album, you don’t always know in advance which songs will become very special in a live touring setting. After touring for several months now, we know that ‘BRAVE’ is one of our favourite songs to play live. We’re excited to share this very early studio live version with you.”
Since the release of ‘Unison Life’, Brutus have successfully toured all over Europe with sold-out venues everywhere, from Brussels to Amsterdam, Prague, Berlin, Paris, Warsaw and more, as well as a stellar performance at the Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands.
Next week, Brutus embark upon a North American tour which includes major festival spots at Welcome To Rockville, Sonic Temple Art & Music Fest and Boston Calling, as well as a run of shows as support to Converge (US). The US tour ends with their own headline show at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre, supported by fellow Belgian artist Trixie Whitley.
In addition to their UK schedule, 2023 is shaping up to be particularly busy for the band with sets at many of Europe’s biggest festivals such as Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park, Sweden Rock, Copenhell, Pinkpop, Resurrection, Electric Castle Festival, Alcatraz, Pukkelpop and many more. To complete 2023 in style, Brutus’s autumn headline tour will hit the UK, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, France and Switzerland.
