Exiled Belarusian punk rockers

Punk rockers Brutto were formed in 2014 by Sergey Mikhalok, the former front man of the Belarusian rock group Lapis Trubetskoj.

Lapis Trubetskoj were banned in Belarus after they signed an open letter of protest against the imprisonment of President of Belarus Lukashenko’s opponents in 2010.

Sergey Mikhalok now lives in political exile in the Ukraine, and Brutto are banned from performing in Mikhalok’s homeland of Belarus.

Brutto is formed of Сергей Михалок (vocals), Віталь Гуркоў (vocals), Денис Стурченко (bass guitar) and Денис Шуров (drums).

Since 2014, Brutto have released one album with four hit singles. They have given several major concerts and mounted a large-scale tour in Ukraine.

Brutto have always had a pronounced civil position and defended the rights of the people of Belarus and other countries to freedom and self-determination.

The song Warriors of Light became an anthem to freedom on the barricades during the Maidan protest movement in Ukraine.
