Art Brut @ Webster Hall - March 4, 2011
Art Brut

Hello. We're Art Brut.

We've completed the recording of our new album 'Brilliant! Tragic!' and working alongside PledgeMusic, we'd like give you a little more than usual and help us go to places Art Brut have never been.

PledgeMusic allows you to pledge towards Art Brut's dream of touring places that have yet to enjoy the live Art Brut experience. You can get a signed CD or Vinyl before 'Brilliant! Tragic!' reaches the stores. But we're also offering weirder and more wonderful options to a limited number of Art Brut aficionados. What about Art Brut karaoke with Eddie or the whole band playing in your front room...

Art Brut are currently seeking donations in various increments and offering everything from a private live show to a digital download as repayment. Everyone who donates will receive a free live EP and a portion of the proceeds will go toward "housing and homeless charity Shelter, who do incredible work helping to alleviate the massive distress that being homeless, or having a difficult housing situation, can cause".

An exclusive new song "Unprofessional Wrestling" (it won't be on the new album) is also available for free download NOW for the price of an email address. The list of songs that will be on the new album is below, along with the Brilliant! Tragic! cover art (the LP is out May 24 via Cooking Vinyl/The End Records).

Art Brut is plotting a return to North America in June. The band will play NYC at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 23rd Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale Wed at noon, and regular sale on Friday. All dates are listed below.

Art Brut were here earlier this year to play the Downtown Records celebration at Webster Hall with The Suzan, A-Trak (whose next NYC show is at Terminal 5), White Denim, & Lissy Trullie. Pictures from that show, album info and tour dates, below...

webster hall looks really small in these photos.

weird to think of a time when I thought art brut was 'big'

double door? yikes. seems their audience has faded

They played five nights at Schubas and a night at Subterranean in 2009. Both of those venues are smaller than the Double Door.

And sorry, but anyone who goes to an Art Brut show and doesn't have fun is a humorless asshole.

Art Brut are a great live band.

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2011 12:22 PM

Art Brut are one of the best live bands I've ever seen. They put on a genuinely different (and entertaining) show every time I see them. Can't wait for the new album. Frank Black producing them is awesome. Definitely going to some of the shows.

I know they're an aquired taste but anybody who says they suck is just being an ass. They're an interesting band and always exciting live, which is more than I can say for a lot of bands out there. You'll always enjoy yourself at an Art Brut show - unless you're an image obsessed lonely Radiohead fan. Can't wait for the new album.
