Belgium’s heavy atmospheric three-piece BRUTUS have revealed ‘Drive’, the colossal second single from their forthcoming debut album ‘Burst’, due for release via Hassle Records this February 24th.

Having debuted on Daniel P Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, and dubbed a “a powerful and thrilling blend of punk, rock, indie and hardcore that’ll get the teeth in your skull rattling.” by the NME, singing drummer Stefanie Mannaerts reveals, “Drive is a song that was written about someone else - I’ve had these lyrics for four years, but this is the first time they’ve really fit within a song. It can be hard to come across aggressively without screaming and yelling, but ‘Drive’ is one of the tracks where I’ve tried to get the message across just by singing. I need to be on top of my skills to pull this one off - with the drum-fills right before the verse, we tried to make it sound like we were literally pushing a drum down the stairs that keeps on playing whilst crashing down.”
