Canada’s most insanest, undeadest and bestest psychobilly horror-punks, The Brains has never been a band to follow the rules…in fact they’ve made it a point to utterly and completely destroy every single one of them with each album they release and every show they play. These hardworking road-warriors have brought their eye-popping live show to the four corners of the world; playing packed houses throughout Europe, Canada and the US alongside acts like Mad Sin, The Offspring, The Reverend Horton Heat, The Real McKenzies, The Creepshow and many more.
The Monster Within is an unholy collection of 14 mind-bendingly brain-melting tracks that will explode in your earholes like a hell-born volcano. The impossibly fast and unbelievably tight rhythm section of Pat Kadaver (skins) and Colin The Dead (stand up bass) threaten to push the limits of sanity and safety to the very edge… Rene D La Muerte’s (vox/gretsch) haunting croon sends shivers up the spines of even the most jaded listener while his signature guitar stylings fuse the rockabilly sounds of the 50’s with the intensity of an industrial chainsaw. The Brains continue to blur the lines between rockabilly, psycho, surf, punk and rock n’ roll; kicking down genre barriers and demanding undying loyalty at every show they play. Incorporating elements from whatever the hell they feel like, The Brains concoct an irresistable brew of Motorhead-esque ferocity and sexed up latin swagger while adding a pinch of rockabilly revival and a whole lot of booze-fueled punk rock mayhem.
Montreal’s reigning vamps of punk-fuelled psychobilly pandemonium are set to unleash their seventh and most bone-chilling album to date.
The Brains don’t fuck around. In the last year alone, they’ve toured Canada in support of The Reverend Horton Heat and The Nekromantix, completed two wildly successful European tours, played a circle-pit-inducing set at HEAVY MTL and even sold out 2 massive headlining shows in Russia. Their dark and disturbing music videos count in the hundreds of thousands of views and their ever-growing legion of fans are some of the most rabid on the planet. Not ones to be pinned down by genre labels, The Brains seamlessly blend rockabilly, horror, punkrock, new-wave, metal and sexed-up Latin swagger to create a signature sound that is beyond comparison.
