Sea of Doubt Music Video / Digital 7"
Hello all! Our friend Brett Marren from St Louis recently made a stunning stop motion video for the song "Sea of Doubt" from our last record City of Ice. That is available to watch here. On top of that, we have a new, free digital seven inch which was released by the blog, Everything is Chemical, which you can d/l here. Apologies to anyone who came to see us on our last tour, due to situations beyond our control, we had to cancel our tour at the last minute, but rest assure, Br'er is a resilient creature which will rise from the ashes of disaster in September for a short mid west tour! As well, look forward to a new record in the next year and a collection of short stories accompanied with music and drawings penned by band leader Benjamin Schurr. See you all in September!

New Releases + May Tour
Spring is here and there will soon be all sorts of new Br'er paraphernalia for your consumption. First will be a cassette released by the wonderful Already Dead Tapes called Deviation, which is an EP of chamber arrangements from our tour last fall. Already Dead Tapes will also be releasing a split 7 inch between Br'er and Eskimeaux. Each band will cover a song from the other's band, so Eskimeaux will be doing "Emily the Bear" and Br'er will be doing "I Am a Sprial." Next, we will be doing a 2 week, midwest tour with our friends Forget the times in May as a four piece consisting of Benjamin Schurr, Darian Scatton, Gabrielle Smith and Jordin Goff. We will be announcing the dates for that sometime soon. Lastly, we will be releasing a digital 7 inch through the blog Everything is Chemical featuring two new songs and a cover of Throbbing Gristle's "Persuasion". FEEL GOOD. See the artwork for that above.

On our last tour we recorded a quick, mostly live, EP with our friend Nick Naioti of House Pride Records in Murfreesboro. It was released the same day as a free download from their website, which has since gone down, so Edible Onion has posted it in their distro section as a permanent archive. We've included the mp3s below:
01. The Kissing Glove [mp3]
02. City of Ice [mp3]
03. I've Forgotten Nothing [mp3]
04. Empathy [mp3]
For more information, see Edible Onion.

So much news to choose!
Hello friends, it's been a while since there's been any word of ongoings in the world of Br'er, but this was just because we were saving it for one HUGE news blast. First off, A few months ago we released a split cassette with Scallion (Darian's project) on Edible Onion. Second, we did a live recording for the Violitionist Sessions in Denton where we did four songs. You can watch the videos and download them here. We did our cover of "Marked" by Gowns and a new track Called "You Go, We'll Stay Here." (Which brings me to our next bit o' news). We will be releasing our second LP City Of Ice on Edible Onion on November 22nd, at the tail end a month long fall tour. Check this page for confirmed dates. We will be posting details about the album shortly, but for now, you can see the cover below:
