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 releasing a second song from their upcoming EP, a cover of long-time band favourite ‘The Rat’.
As a band known for picking covers that perhaps people wouldn’t expect from them; Cyndi Lauper, Bjork, Pink Floyd and Antony & The Johnsons are some of their previous conquests – ‘The Rat’ is a leftfield take on an already wonderful song by The Walkmen, one that showcases David Jakes’ peerless vocals and one that will hopefully introduce the song to a whole new audience.
Alongside the new EP, out on friday through Hassle Records, Lonely The Brave today kick off a tour supporting British alt-rockers Mallory Knox featuring dates in Cardiff, Edinburgh, London, Bristol and both band’s hometown of Cambridge. Known for their uplifting, atmospheric and anthemic songs, Lonely The Brave are joined on the line-up by their old friends and tour partners, the Glasgow three-piece, Fatherson.
