“A band whose name will soon be up in lights, whether they like it or not.” – NME
“They’re a curiosity to a lot of people, but that’s a magic and exciting time. If you’re a fan, hold onto them tightly – If you’re not, you will be.” – Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1
‘The hype surrounding them is entirely justified…the start of something extraordinary for the band.” –Kerrang!
“Their vocalist has a mammoth arena-filling voice and it will only be a matter of time before they do so.” – The Huffington Post
Lonely The Brave and Hassle Records are thrilled to announce the release of what is undoubtedly one of the most eagerly anticipated rock records of 2014.
Full-length album, “The Day’s War” will be released on June 2nd, and pre-order links are now live to secure a copy on a range of different formats.
CD (both limited edition bookpack and standard version) and heavyweight vinyl can be purchased directly from the band’s web store, whilst a digital download will be available via iTunes. The latter will also offer an exclusive, ‘Mastered for iTunes’ edition of the album that will feature an alternate version of their recent single, ‘Trick Of The Light’.
The band will commemorate this release with an exclusive show at Dingwalls in Camden on June 4th. The pre-sale is now open via Ticketmaster, with 100 tickets being available to purchase direct from the band’s web store as part of a bundle option to anybody wishing to reserve a physical copy of the album. Any remaining tickets will go on general sale from Thursday March 20th.
2013 proved to be a groundbreaking twelve months for the Cambridge five-piece, playing festivals such as Download and Reading & Leeds; supporting Bruce Springsteen at the Olympic Park and opening for Deftones; all alongside the release of their first EP ‘Backroads’ to much critical acclaim.
This year started with the band playing a number of European dates in France and Holland, followed by their first headline tour of the UK, including a sold out show at London’s Cargo. With The Great Escape, Download, many further festival appearances scheduled and the long awaited release of “The Day’s War“, 2014 will surely witness the continued, rapid ascent for an act that Rock Sound say they, “wholeheartedly believe could become the biggest band on the planet“.
