Lonely The Brave – 31st March 2017 – Newcastle University
By Gordon Armstrong (G’s Gig Shots)
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.
