Brutus' Sargent House-released sophomore album Nest is a punk/metal/pop/etc hybrid that defies easy categorization, it could equally appeal to fans of both heavy music and non-heavy music, and it's one of our favorite albums of 2019 so far. We were very excited to learn that the Belgian band plans to come over to the US for Austin's Levitation festival, and we mentioned back in April that we hoped that meant they'd play other US shows too. Then they announced a slot at New Orleans' Voodoo festival, and now they've added headlining shows in LA and NYC! They're also playing Mexico City's Festival Corona Capital while in North America.

The LA show happens November 5 at The Echo and the NYC show happens November 13 at Saint Vitus. Tickets for both shows are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with a stream of the new album and their great live session video for "War," below.
