Brutal Youth - The King
Forming in 2010 in St Johns, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canadian hardcore juggernauts Brutal Youth are now based in Toronto and boast a sound that's been described as "manic, 120 second punk rock anthems peppered with sucker-punch hooks that'll leave you toothless before you even know what hit you."
The band previously featured here with a song from their 2013 Stay Honest album (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/brutal-youth-53.html). Now they're preparing to unleash their blistering new long player, Sanguine, and having been lucky enough to receive a preview d/l of the album I'm advising you all to seriously consider snapping it up when it drops. It's 14 tracks of catchy hardcore tuneage that'll please the fans and no doubt attract the attention of anyone else who's idea of a good time is bouncing around sweatily down the front of a packed out venue. It's due out on Sept 23rd on Stomp Records so watch out for it.
They posted links to a song from the album on their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/brutalyouth/) but for some reason when I tried to view the song on Youtube all I got was a This Video Is Unavailable message. Worry not if you're in the same boat, I stuck it on my channel so I can share it with you today.
This is The King........
