BIG|BRAVE EQUAL PARTS CALCULATING AND CATHARTIC ON NEW SONG “HOLDING PATTERN”

THE SONG APPEARS ON THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM A GAZE AMONGT THEM, OUT MAY 10TH ON SOUTHERN LORD

CATCH BIG | BRAVE ON TOUR BEGINNING MAY 16TH

One of heavy music’s most fearless explorers, BIG|BRAVE trek even more uncharted terrain with their latest single “Holding Pattern.” Clocking in at nearly ten minutes, the slow burning track is commandeered by pinprick drum fills, swaths of reverb-cloaked riffing, and, of course, Robin Wattie’s signature siren song vocals. Watch the music video for “Holding Pattern,” the latest single from BIG|BRAVE’s forthcoming album.

Since their inception seven years ago BIG|BRAVE have remained loyal to a triad of key principles: space, volume, and raw emotion. That commitment to style and form has never been more evident than with A Gaze Among Them. Doubling down on their explosive chemistry, earsplitting dynamism, and sonic discipline, this new album finds the trio more confident than ever.  

A Gaze Among Them was spawned by a simple, but no less profound, question: “How do we take very little and make something bigger than what we actually have?” Toying with stark minimalism, melodic tension, and Wattie’s staggering vocal strength, the album serves as a culmination of BIG|BRAVE’s near-decade of musical fearlessness. Anchored by their tried-and-true three-person lineup, A Gaze Among Them also enlists a who’s who of guest talent. With Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion) on Contrabass and Seth Manchester on synth overdubs, A Gaze Among Them is BIG|BRAVE’s most evolved, inclusive work yet.
