Bruise Pristine @ Factory Theatre, 22nd Nov

SHOW NOTES “Bruise Pristine are never an easy listen, and their pounding, piledriving sound is ratcheted up several notches in the Factory’s main room. A relentlessly defiant set that finds its spirit animal in their insanely intense cover of Bjork’s ‘Army Of Me’, transformed here into an artillery barrage of sound.” LEARN MORE Facebook | […]

Bruise Pristine @ LazyBones Lounge, 24th Sep

SHOW NOTES “This is almost, but not quite, Bruise Pristine acoustic and unplugged. The lack of full-bore fury reveals whole new sides to the songs, but without diminishing their strength or the passion in the delivery.

It’s a beast, and not one that you or anyone else if likely to tame anytime soon.” LEARN MORE Facebook | Instagram | […]

Bruise Pristine @ The Hideaway Bar, 13th Apr

SHOW NOTES “Bruise Pristine are not designed for easy consumption. There are no three-minute pop songs. There are no easily hummable hooks. There is a dark, pure, relentless rage that simmers like the pit of a volcano and occasionally spits out blazing hot rocks that will kill you stone dead. This isn’t fun, and it […]
