The Brains new release "Out In The Dark" and Canadian tour!
October 7, 2015
Montreal’s reigning vamps of punk-fuelled psychobilly pandemonium are set to unleash their seventh and most bone-chilling album to date.The Brains don’t mess around. In the last year alone, they’ve toured Canada in support of The Reverend Horton Heat and The Nekromantix, completed two wildly successful European tours, played a circle-pit-inducing set at HEAVY MTL and even sold out 2 massive headlining shows in Russia. Their dark and disturbing music videos count in the hundreds of thousands of views and their ever-growing legion of fans are some of the most rabid on the planet. Not ones to be pinned down by genre labels, The Brains seamlessly blend rockabilly, horror, punkrock, new-wave, metal and sexed-up Latin swagger to create a signature sound that is beyond comparison.
Out In The Dark is a perfect example of The Brains’ ability to smash down genre walls with eleven killer tracks of blistering Gretsch guitar, machine-gun percussion and relentless stand-up bass. After seven albums, the band have honed their craft to a level above exceptional, beyond tightness and surpassing awesome. Don’t be left Out In The Dark. Look for The Brains on tour everywhere starting Oct 30!
From the press gallery:
“Montreal self-styled psychobilly trio mashes Stray Cats and Adam Ant with a gallon of Red Bull and rips through a bar chord of songs about graveyards, murder, rebellion, leather and feral women. All is delivered with engaged enthusiasm and bristling musicianship that makes for an essential party-hearty kinda album.”- NEW CANADIAN MUSIC
“As I’ve listened to their last couple of albums, these guys just keep on getting better, the playing gets tighter and the songs just keep getting more and more catchy, and they seem to get stuck in my CD player for days on end. The Brains prove that rockabilly / psychobilly has a place in your collection with this album of perfectly created ear-scorching tracks that defy you not to love them. So just give in, buy the damn album and dance until your knees give out.”– NEW NOISE MAGAZINE
“The Brains continue to impress me (and scare me).” – VERBICIDE
