Today marks exactly five years since Brutus performed the show that became their Live in Ghent album.

To celebrate we're launching a brand new limited vinyl pressing, plus again making it available again on CD.

Both formats are limited to just 500 copies. Missed it the first time? Now's your chance to grab a copy! One of the most exciting live bands in the world, Belgian 3-piece BRUTUS, released this live record in October 2020, capturing this incendiary outfit in their hometown of Ghent in front of 750 of their most die hard fans at this special, sold out show.

With an album cover depicting Peter's (Mulders, bass guitar) step-son, who wrote out their set-list on the night of the recorded show, 'Live In Ghent' went some way to giving fans a taste of what they were missing in 2020 thanks to the ceasing of actual live shows.

The band explain a bit more - "When the real world went into lockdown, early March 2020, a year of live music disappeared before our eyes.

Going on tour, playing festivals, watching bands, it's all gone. It was as hard for us as it has been for everybody involved in live music.

As a remedy, we took the time to look back on what we had already done and collected the footage we had of our previous shows.

Painful and healing at the same time. That's when we stumbled upon the recordings of our show at Handelsbeurs in Ghent, May 2019.

A hometown show we fully recorded and filmed after a period of touring, in front of all our family and friends.

We know it's just a recording and not even close to the real feeling we had on stage, but looking back, we feel absolutely proud about that show."
