Brutus have announced a live album. The Belgian post-hardcore trio will release Live in Ghent on October 23 via Sargent House. The show was recorded in their home city of Ghent, Belgium, in front of an audience of 750.
The band says in a press 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.”

Brutus’ last album was 2019’s Nest.
