Brass Against release EP with original work on April 10th

Brass Against

Brass Against EP is set to be released this Friday, April 10th and marks the band’s first original work following their inventive covers of Rage Against The Machine, Tool, and more.

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.

Brass Against was formed in 2017 due to the political climate and feeling there was a real need for politically charged music. In the summer of 2017, Brad Hammonds met with Andrew Gutauskas (Baritone Sax and Musical director), played through a few Rage Against The Machine tunes, called their friends to help create a video, and Brass Against was born.

Brass Against has since toured Europe twice, including 12 sold out shows on their first outing in early 2019. Additional appearances include various festivals including Boomtown, Pukkelpop, Wacken, Download Madrid, and more, as well as an opening for Lenny Kravitz at the O2 Arena.

The collective started off strong in 2020 with shows in Australia, festivals in New Zealand (Splore and Electric Avenue) and Indonesia (Java Jazz Festival), headlining European shows later this year, and are scheduled for performances at U.S. festivals Summer Meltdown and Summer Camp Music Festival.

Over the past two years, Brass Against has released three full length albums including renditions of songs from Rage Against The Machine, Tool, Audioslave, and more, featuring vocals from Sophia Urista, Liza Colby, Samuel Hope, and more.
