Born in the dive bars and alleyways of East Vancouver, BRASS is a punk/hardcore band known for their energetic and sweat-soaked shows fuelled by shout-along anthems and heavy-hitting riffs.
While growing a following around Western Canada for their chaotic shows at house parties, skate parks and dive bars, BRASS has opened for IDLES, H09909, Pissed Jeans, Fucked Up, Single Mothers, Touche Amore, culminating with a short run with Canadian punks PUP. After several Canadian tours of their own and numerous festival appearances BRASS eventually brought their raucous live show overseas for a month-long European tour in 2017.
The 5-piece punk outfit just release their 3nrd studio album Look on the Bright Side on Oct 21st with Early Onset Records. With new members, a bigger sound and a renewed chip on their shoulders, BRASS are back and ready to make you dance again.
