To describe the last two years as a whirlwind for BRUTUS is something of an understatement. Having signed to Hassle Records, 2017 saw the release of their debut album, Burst, which set them on a path littered with 10/10 reviews, award nominations and ‘album of the year’ accolades. The BRUTUS maelstrom hasn’t slowed any through 2018; a relentless touring schedule has seen them win over club and festival audiences en masse.
Having toured with Sargent House label mates Chelsea Wolfe and Russian Circles, BRUTUS also hit the road as main support to Thrice through Europe. Taking time out from the live circuit, the trio headed to Vancouver to record the follow up to Burst, once again returning to Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung, Baptists) at his Rain City Recordings studio in September 2018. The resulting 11 tracks form BRUTUS’s new album, Nest.
