From the familiar soils of UK and Europe (countries long converted to the BWP Cult since the release of breakthrough album, 2010’s The Root Of All Evil ) to Australia, Japan, Russia and South East Asia, Brutality Will Prevail’s relentless drive, ever progressing strength of material and intense live performances caught the attention of the Century Media / Siege Of Amida alliance. And, following a triumphant UK run with Cancer Bats and an attention grabbing set at Download Festival 2013, the labels snapped the band up.
The first strike of this newly forged partnership is a deluxe reissue of Scatter The Ashes on gatefold 12” Vinyl and 21-track, double CD set, which is set for release on November 18, 2013. This definitive edition of Scatter The Ashes features the album in its entirety, but boasts a leviathan 11 bonus tracks, taken from The Root Of All Evil album and 2011’s hard to find Sleep Paralysis E.P, marking the first time that much of this material has been made available on CD.
Further, the quintet will enter Monnowvalley Studios in Wales this month to begin the recording of their fourth album with producer Gethin Pearson, with mixing duties to be handled by Converge’s Kurt Ballou (Baroness, Kvelertak, Converge, Cave In) at God City Studios in Boston, USA towards the end of the year. The album, which is scheduled for a Spring 2014 release, will be the recorded debut of vocalist Louis Gauthier and drummer Craig Reynolds, who joined BWP at the start of the Scatter The Ashes touring cycle in January 2013.
To celebrate the re-issue of Scatter and to mark the end of their most exciting year to date, BWP will emerge from the studio in December to play a handful of shows.

Dec 20 – Corporation, Sheffield (w/ While She Sleeps)
