After a great summer of playing festivals such as PouzzaFest, FuseFest and Beau’s OktoberFest, Ottawa, ON’s loud, wild and heavy anthemic rock n’rollers HELLBROS have a new music video especially for those 80’s video game lovers… Duck Hunt, Space Invaders anyone..? The video is for their new fist pumping stage diving single “Feed It” that is slated to be on HELLBROS‘ upcoming album “Take The Animal” that they will be hitting the studio in November to record and plan to release in 2018. “Take The Animal” will be the follow up to their 2016 self-titled album debut on French label Bad Reputation, which was a compilation of their two previous self-releases, 2011’s full length album ‘Good Time Machine’ and their 2015 EP ‘Calling All Giants’.
Frontman Peter Jurt comments on the video:
“It’s homage to our love of the 80’s; a bump of sunset strip sleaze with a sprinkle of thrash metal.”

2015 began a great year for the Hellbros, they signed with Bad Reputation Records (Fr) and released their 3rd album, ‘Self Titled’, on September 15th in Europe. A follow up to their debut full length album ‘Goodtime Machine’, which took home the fan voted best rock/hard rock album of the year in the 2012 Independent Music Awards. They once again teamed up with engineer and co-producer Dean Hadjichristou and mixer Riccardo ‘Paso’ Pasini for this album.
November 2015 Hellbros released an unofficial anthem during the Grey Cup week for the Ottawa Redblacks CFL football team. The song entitled, “We’re All Redblacks” was debuted on TSN1200 radio. “Pretty strong effort!, well sung, well performed.” – JR TGOR Show The song was also picked up by Ottawa’s Classic Rock station Chez 106.1 – “Hellbros getting us all in the mood for the Ottawa Redblacks game!” – Woody (Chez 106)
In June 2016, Hellbros headed overseas for a run of shows in Europe that brought them to Belgium, France, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany and the Netherlands. Just like Hellbros latest album their shows will start off with a “hardrock-like ‘heeeeeell yeaaah!’” and just like it does on their album it will set the tone for the rest of the show. So hold on to your butts.
