Belgian punks Brutus recently signed to Sargent House, and their new album Burst will be out this digitally this Friday (5/12) and physically on June 30 (pre-order). They recorded it in Vancouver with producer Jesse Gander, who’s worked on great records by Japandroids and White Lung, and if you like those bands, you’ll probably like this one too. Vocalist/drummer Stefanie Mannaerts has a powerful voice, the kind of melodic yet abrasive delivery that got actual punk bands on the radio in the ’90s and early ’00s. We’ve got the premiere of new song “Drive,” which sounds like it could’ve been a hit in that era.
