Brutai Posts Bloodstock Footage, Reworked Version Of “Relapse”

Following a successful performance at Bloodstock Festival 2016, Brutai just released some exclusive behind the scenes footage, alongside a live montage synced to the reworked album version of the song “Relapse.” Felix Lawrie says this about the track:

“Lyrically, ‘Relapse’ is about the ongoing battle with addiction. We can all get addicted to something that takes away the pain. Some people have an ongoing fight with this illness everyday – and it is something that has the ability to consume you and deeply affect others around you.

“Addiction can come in many different vices such as alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling, sex, and more. There aren’t many known cures for it either; just acceptance, and learning how to deal with it better in your own way. Everyone can relapse but what’s important is how we respond to it.”

The band also just recently signed to Transcend Music, and new album “Born” will be out on the 25th of November, 2016.

An official stream of the title track of the new AC/DC album, “Rock Or Bust”, is available below.

AC/DC guitarist Angus Young has spoken publicly for the 1st time about his brother and bandmate Malcolm’s struggle with dementia, revealing that Malcolm was already showing signs of his illness on the band’s last album “Black Ice”.
Angus Young: “It’s something that had actually been happening for a long time,” adding that Malcolm’s symptoms, such as lapses in memory and concentration, “had surfaced even before the last project”.

Angus Young added that Malcolm was “still capable of knowing what he wanted to do. I had said to him, ‘Do you want to go through with what we’re doing?’ And he said, ‘Shit, yeah’… Malcolm liked to finish what he started.”

Malcolm is currently in full-time care at a facility in Australia and did not play on “Rock Or Bust”, although all the songs on the disc are credited to the 2 Young brothers.
