For the members of Belgian post-hardcore trio Brutus, music is all about “energy and emotion.” The group’s 2017 album Burst is full of both, a quality that has won them many fans including ex-Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato (now of the Black Queen), Thrice drummer Riley Breckenridge and Metallica’s Lars Ulrich.
When Belgium’s Brutus were over in the UK last week, they did a nine date tour and a session on the Radio 1 Rock Show. What did you do last time you were in Belgium? Exactly. They brought talented photographer Eva Vlonk along for the ride, she shot a tour diary which the band captioned and gave to us, and which you can see above!

BRUTUS Completely against my normal use, or the curse that until recently I thought it rested, it is unbelievably nice weather and I fall exactly in the shot of a stifling BRUTUS when I enter the hall and get a beer. 'Fuck it, no time, point and space for paranoid Murphy's Law hassle and just enjoy with your mouth' I admonish myself with a clenched fist. It had to be just like that and how. The band completes this day the tour they have made with headliner Russian Circles, after which they will continue their bizarre journey with Thrice and subsequently Chelsea Wolfe. Personal discharge of lost guilt is also possible after having to bail after two songs during a glorified 'DJ' job on the NMTH-hosted stage during Life I Live Festival.
