Emerging from the ashes of several pop bands, the project was born of the desire of its members to turn their backs on the majors and return to a process of creation without constraints.

Initially the band’s intention was not to perform live but to research and experiment with sound in a studio environment. At the end of 2016, this research would result in two live videos filmed in their studio that would enable the band to make its debut on the Toulouse scene. After this experience, the band composed together in search of their own sound identity and with the aim to create progressive music that subverts genre and would result in the expansion of stylistic boundaries. 

On 19 July, 2018, BRUIT ≤ signed to Elusive Sound who released their first EP titled “Monolith” in the fall of 2018. After a 20-show tour in France and Belgium the band focused on the composition and production of their first full- length album « The machine is burning and now everyone knows it could happen again ». This album was written like an imageless movie containing two chapters that illustrate an inevitable repetition of events and a vicious cycle that human civilisations are stuck in. It is an existential tale describing a humanity that experiences apocalypse and rebirth. After a digital release in April 2021 and a notable appearance at the online version of the Dunk! Festival the band signs in December 2021 with the label Pelagic Records.

The physical release for “The machine is burning and now everyone knows it could happen again” is scheduled for a release in 2022. Watch out for preorders around end of January.⁠
