Brutus Share Live Studio Video and Announce Summer Shows

Ahead of their heavy European festival run this summer, Belgium’s Brutus have revealed a new live session version of track “Baby Seal“, filmed and recorded live at Red Bull Studios in Paris. “Baby Seal” is taken from the band’s debut album Burst, which is out now via Hassle Records (EU)/Sargent House (US & Rest of the World). 


Describing the track, Stefanie reveals “Baby Seal” is “just a simple rock song, maybe the most classic song Brutus can build. Rock hard, hit harder!”; a statement that certainly shines true on this live session recording. “The lyrics came to me by accident. I was singing the word “see” and Stijn was hearing the word “seal”. Simple as that, Baby Seal”, Stefanie explains, “But. This could have been a funny anecdote, nothing more, nothing less. But it’s not”. I was hit by the idea to make a real song about a Baby Seal, clubbed to death. As a vegan, I love animals a lot and if it’s up to me, this is the new anthem against animal abuse! :)”.
