Brakes release a new single, Beatific Visions on August 20th 2007. Having released singles about the loss of liberty ('Hold Me In The River') and the death of god ('Cease and Desist'), Brakes have decided to release a song about the good things in life.
'Beatific Visions' ('The sight of god or of the blessed in heaven, especially that granted to the soul at the instant of death' - Brewers Dictionary of Phrases and Fables) is a celebration of le petit mort, the momentary loss of conciousness during a climax, set in Brakes' home town Brighton.
Brakes have just returned, bedraggled and wide eyed, from a month long headline tour of the US. Brakes (brakesbrakesbrakes in the US due to some lawful name wrangling) knocked down a tree in Long Beach, drove 7200 miles in three weeks and arrived in New York to two sold out shows at The Mercury.
Go see Brakes live!
