Capturing the rawness of the trio's organic performance.
It takes a concert to fully immerse yourself in the emotion that BRUTUS set forth, as those who have done so can attest. Seeing as that's not happening anytime soon, Sargent House are bringing the show to us with the release of Live in Ghent on October 23rd, embodying the explosiveness of the group in recorded form. The album cover sports an image of bassist Peter Mulders' step-son writing out their set-list on the night of the sold-out show in their hometown of Ghent, giving the composition a heartfelt touch.
BRUTUS comment of the release:
"When the real world went into lockdown, early March 2020, a year of live music disappeared before our eyes. Going on tour, playing festivals, watching bands, it’s all gone. It was as hard for us as it has been for everybody involved in live music. As a remedy, we took the time to look back on what we had already done and collected the footage we had of our previous shows. Painful and healing at the same time. That’s when we stumbled upon the recordings of our show at Handelsbeurs in Ghent, May 2019. A hometown show we fully recorded and filmed after a period of touring, in front of all our family and friends."
"We know it’s just a recording and not even close to the real feeling we had on stage or the energy we got back from the crowd in the room, but looking back, almost a year later, we feel absolutely proud about that show."
