Luke Goss Discusses One 'Beautiful' Outcome Of Infamous Bros Documentary

Bros: After The Screaming Stops became a national talking point after it aired last year.

Bros singer Luke Goss has said he’s proud of the twins’ infamous documentary, as he feels it gave men “permission” to cry.

Originally airing in December 2018, Bros: After The Screaming Stops captured the brothers, among many other things, looking back at the death of their mother, while the band’s fame was at its peak.

While the BBC documentary garnered various reactions from viewers, Luke has told BBC Radio 2 that sparking conversations about men showing their emotions was a “beautiful” result.

Speaking to Kate Thornton in an interview which airs this weekend, Luke says: “Men are encouraged to hide their pain, and I think the movie gave permission for many men, from my experience on this whole adventure, to let out a tear or 20.

“It’s been a very beautiful ramification of the film.”

Luke’s twin and bandmate Matt adds that he felt he and his brother had to be “resilient” when they appeared on Good Morning America just three days after their mother, who had cancer, died.

“We didn’t surrender. I think it actually got the better of us, because slowly but surely the experience chipped away at our souls,” he explains.

“It’s still something that I have not currently dealt with … I’m going to take a little bit of time – a month or so – I just want to put my face in the sea and let some tears out.”

The pair – whose squabbles were filmed in the BBC documentary – also admit that they still regularly find themselves arguing.

Matt reveals: “We had a couple of arguments in rehearsals for the recent shows, but I guess that’s meant to happen. We’re still individuals that have to find each other’s common ground.

“But there’s also only two punching bags, you know what I mean? I have one punching bag, and he has one punching bag. So nobody else is getting punched except each other…

“It can get very, very tiring, because we’re so close, and neither one of us would ever assume that an argument would be bigger than our brotherhood.”

Kate Thornton meets Matt and Luke Goss airs on Saturday at 9pm on BBC Radio 2.
