Rising Belgian trio Brutus have just shared ‘Cemetery’, the band’s brand new single and the second to come from their soon-to-be-released sophomore full-length, ‘Nest’.
The band had this to say about the track and its accompanying artistic video.
“At the end of our recording time in Vancouver we visited our management and US label Sargent House in Los Angeles. Our manager Cathy’s home is in the mountains and has this most beautiful garden, and we immediately knew we wanted this garden to feature at some point in something that Brutus would create. So we’re incredibly pleased to have had the video for our new track ‘Cemetery’ shot there. Dancer Jarret and director Mitch Wells (from the awesome band Thou) got one message: just go completely nuts in the gardens, and we love what they captured. Spending time over there after just recording the new album felt like the closing chapter to our debut album ‘Burst’, and subsequently the colours refer to the artwork of that album; this ends a chapter and is a new beginning, from now on we only look forward.
[The track is about] doubts. You just try so hard to just keep going and doing the best you can. But in fact, sometimes you only get shit in return. People don’t always backup the choices you’re making. The aggression in the high guitar notes resemble the irritation we felt towards everyone who was not driving along with us. In the second, compelling part we are asking them to give us time, so we can process what they’re saying.”

The band’s second full-length album, ‘Nest’, is slated for release on March 29th 2019 through Hassle Records/Sargent House.
