Authenticity is at the core of everything Brooklyn Brewery undertake. Created by the team at Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Sound is providing music fans with an insight into the musical subcultures that are thriving in NYC and the sounds that fuel them, alongside a platform for the leading protagonists to perform. 2018 saw Brooklyn Sounds tours with Ho99o9, Lightning Bolt and Chk! Chk! Chk!, this year the team is once again gearing up to host another series of explosive one-off shows.
Championing New York’s thriving music scene by providing key players with the means to tour in style. Orange Amps will be powering the back-line, the tour bus fueled up ready, a fridge full of cold beer and tour route mapped. Note that customised Brooklyn x Orange Crush Pro guitar amps wll remain in-house, providing parnering venues and the touring axe slingers that will grace their stages with the amplification fit for rock and roll royalty.
That is why Clash jumped at the opportunity to join forces. For the first tour of 2019, we are going to dive head first into a sonic assault of frantic, ferocious, no-frills metalcore with MUTOID MAN.
Their savage sounds were born in the sweaty basement of legendary Brooklyn metal club St.Vitus.
Guitarist/vocalist Steven Brodsky and drummer Ben Koller joined forces, recruiting then St.Vitus’ sound man and master behind the desk Nick Cageo to play bass and a monstrous three-piece was formed. Exuding gritty New York City charm with every note shredded, it is an honour to host MUTOID MAN on U.K stages and bring a slice of St.Vitus’ hardcore underground scene to a venue near you.
Their live show is renowned, showmanship abounds melded with relentless head-nod riffs and Van-Halen'esque panache. The gang join Brooklyn Sound straight off the back of tour support duties for the mightiest of mighty, Mastodon. This is a rare opportunity to experience that frenzy up close and personal at one of four of the countries finest music establishments.
Tickets for Brooklyn Sound shows are a mere £5.00 and are available here. Note ticket price also includes a free can of beer, a piece of tour merchandise and there are no other booking fees applied.
The tour will kick off at The Cluny in Newcastle on 17th April, and then roll onwards north of the border to Broadcast in Glasgow (18th), Soup Kitchen in Manchester (20th) before culminating with a very special finale show at The Black Heart in London on 21st April.
See you in the pit!
