About this Episode

Straight out of the Crescent City, BRAT are set to release their forthcoming debut album,
Social Grace, via Prosthetic Records on March 15. Since their 2021 inception, the New Orleans.

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

psychological horror fiction and admiration for Stephen King genre classics evident on songs
such as Hesitation Wound and Truncheon, as well as the title-track’s scathing rebuttal of

I got to sit down with guitarist Brenner Moate where we talked about the bands new album, 'Social Grace', how the band started and so much more!

With great stories, chats and banter this is not one to be missed.

Avalible on all streaming platforms.
