Belgian 3-piece BRUTUS, have released a new live video for ‘All Along (Live In Ghent),’ the track is taken from the bands’ brand new live record ‘Live In Ghent’ out on 23rd October through Hassle Records.

Capturing this incendiary outfit in their hometown of Ghent in front of 750 of their most die hard fans at this special, sold out show, is seen by the band as a way to balance out the fact a year of touring has been taken away from them  and all musicians. 

Brutus continue to provide exhilarating live shows, ones you desperately need to witness to appreciate their enigmatic creativity and powerful energy- the new video captures just that and makes the audience watching feel like they too were in the room.

The band spoke about the new video for ‘All Along’ saying:

 ‘We released All Along on November 21, 2016. It was the first song of our debut album BURST, which came out early 2017. Back then, we had absolutely no idea about what would happen. We had no big plan, not even big dreams. We had played a hundred shows mostly in Belgium, when all of a sudden there was this warm independent label called Hassle Records and some guys called Wez and Mease who wanted to release our first album BURST. All Along was the first song out. Our world changed. 2018 and 2019 were all about touring all over Europe and even the USA and writing NEST. We had to strip down day jobs and cut in on family life to follow this rising dream. We’ve learned that our music touches a lot of people and we are truly honoured by that. All Along is definitely the song that got everything rolling. That’s why All Along will always be a special song to us. Hope you’ll love this live version as much as we do.’

With an album cover depicting Peters (Mulders, bass guitar) step-son, who wrote out their set-list on the night of the recorded show, ‘Live In Ghent’ goes some way to giving fans a taste of what they have missed in 2020 thanks to the ceasing of actual live shows.

The band explain a bit more – “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.”

The band have actually played two live shows recently in Belgium, as a tentative return to concerts takes shape on mainland Europe. Recent shows: On July 17th they played the Rivierenhof in Antwerp, to 400 people (seated) in a 2000 people open air venue and on July 20th they played at Fort Napoleon in Ostend, to 100 people (seated), exclusive to band’s mailing list fans.
