New Orleans' BRAT has today revealed the full details for their forthcoming debut album, Social Grace, due for release via Prosthetic Records on March 15. Alongside the album announcement, the death grind / hardcore band has shared the album's third single and an accompanying music video, Hesitation Wound. Social Grace follows BRAT's blistering ascension both on the road and in-studio with relentless US touring and two head turning EP’s already under their belt since their 2021 inception.

Stream Hesitation Wound via Apple Music, TIDAL, Deezer, Spotify and Bandcamp.

Speaking on the album announcement, BRAT comments: "Hesitation Wound is the 3rd single from our first album Social Grace, due out March 15th. In true BRAT form the music video is in keeping with our campy lighthearted approach to the otherwise grim music and lyrics. You can catch us on tour now until Feb 20th with Escuela Grind with Take Offense and Bonginator!"

Between an intense live schedule over the last three years, which saw BRAT share the stage with the likes of Eyehategod, Cro-Mags and contemporaries in grind such as ACxDC and No/Mas, the band recorded Social Grace over the course of a year and a half at HighTower Recording studio (Thou, A Wilhelm Scream, Eyehategod). Recording songs in batches helped BRAT finetune and focus their songcraft in condensed bursts, resulting in a coalescence of death metal, thrash, and powerviolence brutality.

BRAT’s self-described barbiegrind / bimboviolence aesthetic is one of intentional dichotomy to their sound, with a keen focus to allow space and inclusivity for outsiders that shirks the traditional in favor of jubilant authenticity. Feral and ferocious in content and anti-purist in nature, BRAT’s Social Grace is a cataclysmically heavy party that everyone’s invited to.
