Lonely The Brave – 29th May 2016 – Newcastle Riverside
By Gordon Armstrong (G’s Gig Shots)
I first became aware of these in 2013 when the played a late afternoon slot on the 4th stage at Download . I was totally taken by them and could see in them the potential to be so much bigger. They’ve gone on to support the likes of Deftones, Springsteen, BRMC, Therapy? and played most of the major festivals too as well as their own tour dates .
Tonight was my 10th time seeing them since 2013 and they did not disappoint. Tracks from their debut album mix well with the new ones from just released ‘Things Will Matter’. Davids voice just gets stronger ever show and yes will always get that Vedder comparison but they are so much more than that with influences coming in from all over! Tonight’s crowd weren’t as mad as the previous Cluny show, I’m not sure if it was just because of the new tracks still being new or what?? I hope they get to try and crack the States soon as I think that could get them to that next level here as well.
