Stefanie, Stijn and Peter teamed up to start Brutus in 2013. They all met while playing in different bands from the same region of Leuven (Belgium). In merging their different ideas and musical tastes they have formed a strong union, both musically and personally.

Drummer vocalist Stefanie mixes black-metal blast beats with math-rock flourishes whilst belting out the most impassioned vocals, shifting from deceptively melodic to out-right larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye. Guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden takes ethereal post-rock tones to hardcore punk levels of speed and energy aside Peter Mulders powerful sub-frequency shifts. It’s the way in which the band mixes post-rock construction, metal dynamics with hardcore energy and prog rock all the while lacing it with pure pop melodies that make Brutus’ sound so unique and all their own.

Brutus’ debut album BURST (2017) was released by Hassle Records in UK and Europe, and then later by Sargent House for USA and the rest of the World. In 2017- 2018 they have toured extensively all over Europe, playing many large festivals as well as direct support to Russian Circles, Thrice and Chelsea Wolfe on their European tours.

Their follow up album NEST was released in March of 2019 to much critical acclaim from top music outlets including Stereogum, Clash, Consequence of Sound, Revolver, Kerrang and many more. Their debut live video for the track WAR has already received over 260k plays (June 17, 2019).

In Spring of 2019 Brutus headlined in Europe selling out shows in UK, Belgium and Germany. They will be playing a multitude of European festivals this Summer including: Hellfest, Download Festival Madrid, ArcTangent, 2000 Trees, & Pukkelpop.

In October and November they will make their live debut in the United States playing some headline shows as well as New Orleans’ Voodoo Festival, Austin’s Levitation Festival and Corona Capital Festival in Mexico City. Immediately, upon their return they will join Cult of Luna as direct support in Europe and the UK.

We’re all in this together.
All of us are constantly monitoring the ever-changing situation with regard to COVID-19. As part of the community, we’re sad that we can’t do what we do best…host some great nights of live music. We know what an emotional uplift music provides at times like this. But what’s most important for right now is for us to follow all guidelines regarding large gatherings -- mandated or recommended -- until we are told it’s safe to re-open. We need to do our part as good neighbors to help lessen the impact of the coronavirus. Right now all of our shows through the end of May are officially postponed, but governmental timelines at all levels are constantly being reassessed, so unfortunately ours remains fluid while all of this progresses.
We’re still hoping that we are able to reschedule as many of the postponed events as possible, so hold onto your tickets! They will be valid for rescheduled dates. We know you have questions about refunds for rescheduled shows, and we’re working through that too. We’re in uncharted waters, so give us a minute and continue to check back here for more info as we have it; this is where we will be making any announcements. Hang in there and stay safe, everyone. We miss you all and can’t wait to see you again!
