Brass Against To Release New EP In April


Having made a name for themselves on the backs of their various covers of the likes of Rage Against The Machine, Tool and more, Brass Against are now preparing to release their first-ever collection of original material. A self-titled EP from the collective is headed for an April 10th release date.

Vocalist Sophia Urista commented:

Brass Against relies on the dedicated individualism of our members to do what we do. Therefore, we embrace everyone’s freedom of speech and expression, regardless of our differences.

While we believe that anger, questioning authority & fighting for freedom are vitally meaningful ways of expressing ourselves in society, we also hope to portray the absolute importance of acceptance, vulnerability, togetherness, excellence, curiosity & love.

When our fans hear the new EP we want them to, ultimately, feel a connection (through our stories) to the strength within themselves, and thereby, those around them.”

The band’s leader Brad Hammonds commented:

“This EP marks our first foray into writing after doing interpretations of others’ songs for the last two years. We can’t wait to release these three tracks and to continue writing and recording. The process has been the most rewarding thus far.”

“Amidst the turbulent, divisive political landscape, the constant barrage of content and our own unsteady minds we remind the listener with heavy guitars, a huge brass section, and screaming vocals to ‘Just Breathe‘.”

The EP will feature the below track listing:

01 – “Umbra
02 – “Pull The Trigger
03 – “Blood On The Other
