Lonely The Brave – 31st March 2017 – Newcastle University

First of all let me apologise, I just couldn’t get my settings sorted for this one which is annoying as I love this band! Oddly tonight all three bands on the bill are headliners in their own right, with Fatherson not long back from selling out the Cluny. Lonely The Brave, who have been out promoting their second album both headlining and opening huge arenas for Biffy across Europe and this tours headliners Mallory Knox.

However this is a kind of a mates package as all the bands know each other and have toured together before! Tonight was the 12th or 13th (I have lost count) time I have seen Lonely The Brave and to be honest it never gets old. The passion they have for their songs is incredible all of them singing every lyric even though only David is actually at a mic until backing vocals are needed.

I still get goosebumps hearing the crowd singing the chorus’s back at them no matter how many times I hear it. They are out on the release of a new EP Diamond Days but the short sharp set features tracks from both albums too. I’d love to see them crack the USA soon, I reckon there’s a huge following for them just waiting!! They have come a long way in the last few years and it shouldn’t be too long before they are a LOT of peoples favourite band.

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.
