Lonely The Brave have been deliberately quiet these last few months, working on new material. This has been all the more noticeable because last year alone saw them secure a no.1 on the rock chart with their second LP “Things Will Matter”, sell-out a headline tour and play main support on a European tour with Biffy Clyro, followed with a thematically linked series of EP’s.
Opening with the extremely personal title track “Things Will Matter”, a live favourite which was not featured on the album of the same name, frontman David Jakes tackles his relationship with his father and addresses mortality in an emotive song that finally sees a studio version. And from here the band revisit material from the last album, this time pushing an electronic influence to the forefront. A sound that now incorporates synths, programming and atmospherics in a way they haven’t before. David is also pushed further to the front on 'Redux', just as he has manages to do during the live shows, reminding you exactly why he is such a great vocalist.
'Things Will Matter' (Redux) is out this Friday, 10th November via Hassle Records.
