A bunch of new rock bands have already emerged this year, and Cambridge quartet Lonely The Brave is one of the best so far.
Signed to Hassle Records (We Are The Ocean, Cancer Bats), the band have already supported Don Broco on on their headline tour at the end of last year and turned thousands of heads at last years Download Festival and UK Warped Tour. If that’s not eveough the title track of their EP Backroads was tipped as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on Radio 1 back in October. They’ve even supported Deftones… Mental!
Punchy guitars and bellowing vocals are the norm for these guys. Singer David Jakes has such a voice so powerful that it seems unnatural to come from a man with such an unassuming look. It’s rock perfection. If you haven’t heard them, then you better hurry up – you won’t be disappointed.
Lonely The Brave’s headline tour stops off at the Joiners in Southampton on February 4th and then again at Southampton Mo’ Club on April 11th supporting the mighty Therapy?. Their new track ‘Trick Of The Light’ is available now on iTunes.
