Brass Against set to release debut EP
Published on 7th April 2020
Brass Against EP is set to be released on 10th April and marks the band’s first original work following their inventive covers of Rage Against The Machine, Tool, and more. It has recently been featured on Brooklyn Vegan, Metal Injection, and more.
“Brass Against relies on the dedicated individualism of our members to do what we do. Therefore, we embrace everyone’s freedom of speech and expression, regardless of our differences,” explains vocalist Sophia Urista. “While we believe that anger, questioning authority, & fighting for freedom are vitally meaningful ways of expressing ourselves in society, we also hope to portray the absolute importance of acceptance, vulnerability, togetherness, excellence, curiosity & love. When our fans hear the new EP we want them to, ultimately, feel a connection (through our stories) to the strength within themselves, and thereby, those around them.”
Brass Against is a collective of artists, led and curated by Brad Hammonds, who share in the goal of creating brass protest music that calls fans to action.
“This EP marks our first foray into writing after doing interpretations of others' songs for the last two years,” shares Hammonds. “We can't wait to release these three tracks and to continue writing and recording. The process has been the most rewarding thus far.”
He continues: “Amidst the turbulent, divisive political landscape, the constant barrage of content and our own unsteady minds we remind the listener with heavy guitars, a huge brass section, and screaming vocals to 'Just Breathe'."
Brass Against will release their debut EP Brass Against EP on 10th April 2020.
