THE BRAVE BRING MOODY, GENRE-BENDING METALCORE WITH BRAINS TO WA
FRI 2 AUG – NEWPORT HOTEL, FREMANTLE
SAT 3 AUG – AMPLIFIER BAR, PERTH
Critically acclaimed Brisbane metalcore outfit The Brave will bring their explosive live show to WA next month as part of their national Aura headline tour.
The Brave will perform two shows, Friday, 2 August at Fremantle’s Newport Hotel, supported by Statues, Patient Sixty-Seven, Fadeaway and Hercules Morse.
Perth’s Amplifier Bar is up next on Saturday, 3 August, with the band joined by Statues, Worlds Apart and The Light The Dark.
The Brave have had a whirlwind few years. Since forming in 2013, they’ve toured extensively, signed with UNFD and released both the Endless EP and their 2016 debut album Epoch, which garnered international acclaim from the likes of Kerrang!, triple j and BBC Radio 1.
Following the storming success of Epoch, the five-piece returned in April with the full force of their anticipated second album, Aura. An impressive body of work exploring themes of change, love and loss, Aura is a bold snapshot of a band seeking to use the simple power of music to move people.
From the raging urgency of Above The Clouds, to the swirling guitars and melodic vocals on Ethereal (Winner, “Best Heavy Song” 2018 Queensland Music Awards), The Brave’s moody, genre-bending metalcore has cemented them as one of the most exciting and forward-thinking heavy acts of 2019.
Vocalist Nathan Toussaint said, “We can’t wait to get back over to WA to kick off the Aura Tour! We’ve been wanting to get back since we last played in late 2016, and to be able to come over off the back of a new album makes it even better. We know that WA often gets overlooked on tour circuits so we wanted to make sure we included a couple of shows in this run.”
The Brave recently completed a headline tour in support of anthemic lead single Technicolor, which boasted sold-out shows in Sydney and Brisbane, and supported In Heart’s Wake in their hometown. Tickets for the band’s WA shows are on sale now via Oztix.
