About The Brute Chorus

"..Tom Verlaine and Jonathan Richman gone rockabilly.." – Clash Magazine

Starting out with a residency at London's infamous The Hawley Arms, The Brutes put out their first two singles on the pub's label Bumpman. After a year of relentless touring and widespread acclaim from radio men like Steve Lamacq and Zane Lowe, the Brutes decided to record their debut album in front of a live audience at The Roundhouse in Camden. It received a host of 5 star reviews from Clash, Artrocker, BBC and Drowned in Sound amongst others.

The Brutes recently recorded their second album in a freezing hall in the Lake District. The album 'How the Caged Bird Sings' will be released very soon and singles 'Could This Be Love', 'Heaven' and ‘Birdman’ have already received extensive radio including a live session for Marc Riley on 6music, single of the week on Kerrang Radio and Artist in Residence on XFM. The Brute Chorus quietly slipped back under the radar just before Christmas, reducing their usually frenetic gigging schedule to a couple of secret shows in tiny locations with the likes of Good Shoes. Then signed to East London indie lable Tape, they spent a snowy January recording their second album in a tiny village hall in the depths of the Lake District the band broke cover, with a host of shows and tours to play across France, Germany (with reformed cult alt rockers The Woodentops), England and Scotland followed by a round of boutique festivals and an appearance at the British Grand Prix, ahead of the new album's release in that September. Die Welt gave their show in Hamburg another 5? describing their sound as Fuck-Blues! During World Cup 2010 The Brutes soundtracked Adidas' new boot campaign by faithfully recreating Ennio Morricone's The Man With The Harmonica under the pseudonym The Bottomless Pit Orchestra for an ad featuring Zinadine Zidane and Lionel Messi. The second album ‘How The Caged Bird Sings’ came out to rave reviews in the press and online; Clash, Artrocker and Bizzarre all called it a ‘Must Have!’. It is packaged in an unusual 7" format folded into a poster designed by famed tattooist Mo Coppoletta of The Family Business. The singles from the album received extensive airplay culminating in January 2011 as Artists in Residence on John Kennedy's XFM show and a live session on Marc Riley's show on BBC6. The videos for Heaven and Birdman were created by New York based director David Fishel (The Drums, Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip) and got heavy rotation on websites in Europe and America as well as being aired on the new MTV Iggy.

Live, the band are brimming with energy and replete with confidence built on an impressive gigging schedule, they strut, stutter and howl their way through their live sets. They have toured with Martha Wainwright, Rumble Strips, Ida Maria and even a trip to the seaside with Peggy Sue and The Pirates as well as numerous headline UK and European shows.
