A Brand 'The Singles' out now
It’s been 10 years since A Brand recorded their first single.
From the very beginning, A Brand focused on a unique trademark sound. Three blending guitars, arranged as if they were a horns section, five interlaced vocals, and rhythms inspired by electronic music.
Ten years have seen the rise of four albums, many radio singles and hits, a more than solid live reputation and plenty of juicy rock ‘n roll stories.
Today, it’s more than appropriate to look back. Their very first singles collection, cleverly entitled ‘The Singles’ is out now. It holds one hour of A Brand singles, including two brand new and unreleased tracks that will be hitting the FM waves soon. Also included in this nice package is a live recording of ‘Grammar’ on a separate bonus disc. Grammar is one hour of musical mania, a collage of tons of tunes carefully selected, twisted, tweaked and blended into one track. It is set up as a celebration and a synthesis of their ten years in rock ‘n roll. It was recorded live in a sold out Ancienne Belgique in Brussels earlier in 2012.
All of this makes two hours of A Brand, all wrapped up in a neat package, with liner notes from the band on a pretty fold-out poster. Perfect as an anthology for the fans and as an introduction for future fans.

A Brand presents Grammar
This Saturday, A Brand is hitting the stage of Ancienne Belgique in Brussels for the first ever live performance of their ‘Grammar’ concept.
The band has been around for 10 years now (!) and are celebrating this with a musical collage, in which they mix, blend and mingle old and new tunes into an exciting 1 hour mish mash.
The concerts will be recorded to be released as a bonus on a special anniversary release later this year.
There will be two gigs on the 28th of April at AB club, one at 4pm and one at 8pm. The 8pm show is sold out, so there are only a few tickets left for the 4pm show, you can get them here!
Listen to the new Wallace Vanborn album!
The new Wallace Vanborn album 'Lions, Liars, Guns & God' will be released on Monday the 23rd of April, but if you head over to De Standaard now, you can hear it already!
