Hello. We’re Art Brut.
We’ve completed the recording of our new album ‘Brilliant! Tragic!’ and working alongside PledgeMusic, we’d like give you a little more than usual and help us go to places Art Brut have never been.
PledgeMusic allows you to pledge towards Art Brut’s dream of touring places that have yet to enjoy the live Art Brut experience. You can get a signed CD or Vinyl before ‘Brilliant! Tragic!’ reaches the stores. But we’re also offering weirder and more wonderful options to a limited number of Art Brut aficionados. What about Art Brut karaoke with Eddie or the whole band playing in your front room.
We’ve also got an exclusive new song for you ‘Unprofessional Wrestling’ available now here as a free download.
We’re also starting a ‘Pledgers Only Updates’ page where we’ll share videos, gigs, conversations, demos, rough mixes, words and photos.
And even better, everyone who pledges will get a free 5 track live download EP! (You may see this referred to on the site as ‘project download’).
As if this wasn’t enough, we are donating a percentage of the profits from the project to housing and homeless charity Shelter, who do incredible work helping to alleviate the massive distress that being homeless, or having a difficult housing situation, can cause. It’s a great cause and we’re happy that you’ll be able to help us help them.
So there you have it. Perhaps you’d like to hear our new album before the rest of the world do. Or perhaps you’d like Art Brut to play in your front room. There’s only one way to make it all happen. Get pledging.
Thank you. Over and out.

Art Brut Karaoke with Eddie
Pledge here to get Eddie over to yours for Art Brut Karaoke! Eddie will come to your house and sing the entire new album over an instrumental backing track for you. We’ll be running these all together so let us know your location when you pledge so we can work out a routing for the Karaoke tour. We’ll let you know exact detail as soon as it’s locked in. If for some reason you can’t make the date you’ll be able to reverse your pledge.
