Selected press for 2016’s LP Things Will Matter
“Hugely compelling… a remarkable second album.” **** – Q
“They haven’t just succeeded in proving they were no one trick wonders here, they’ve gone and pulled another rabbit from the hat.” 8/10 – Rock Sound
“One of the most distinctive bands of recent years continue to make great strides into the unknown.” KKKK – Kerrang!
“A great British rock record, by a great British rock band.” **** – Upset
After a great 2016 for the band that included a no.1 album on the rock chart, a sell-out headline tour and a hugely successful European tour in support of Biffy Clyro, Lonely The Brave continue their prolific streak as songwriters by announcing a brand new EP (pre-order HERE), led by album highlight, the atmospheric and emotive “Diamond Days”. The EP features two other non-album tracks, including the immediate, melodic “Collider” (stream HERE), and a cover of The Walkmen’s iconic “The Rat”. A band known for picking covers that perhaps people wouldn’t expect from them – Cyndi Lauper, Bjork, Pink Floyd and Antony & The Johnsons some of their previous conquests – “The Rat” is a leftfield take on an already wonderful song, one that showcases David Jakes’ peerless vocals and one that will hopefully introduce the song to a whole new audience.
Alongside the new EP, coming March 17th through Hassle Records, Lonely The Brave will be supporting British alt-rockers Mallory Knox on their UK tour spanning March and April 2017, featuring dates in Cardiff, Edinburgh, London, Bristol and both Mallory Knox and the band’s hometown of Cambridge.
Known for their uplifting, atmospheric and anthemic songs, the band are joined on the line-up by their old friends and tour partners, the Glasgow three-piece, Fatherson.

“Lonely The Brave are simply phenomenal.” Kerrang!
“Lonely The Brave could be the biggest band on the planet. Fact.” Rock Sound
“Fit to bursting with anthems that will keep them in festival slots for years to come” Mojo
