Three songs stream from band's website

The Bravery are previewing three new songs from their forthcoming album on their website

‘The Sun and the Moon’ — the follow-up to their 2005 debut, ‘The Bravery’ — is due out in May.

As previously reported, the album was produced by Pearl Jam contributor Brendan O’Brien and will feature the tracks ‘Shapes’, the acoustic, string-backed ‘The Ocean’, and ‘Every Word Is A Knife In My Ear’ which, according to frontman Sam Endicott, sounds “like a weird mix between the (Rolling) Stones and the Ramones.”

The New York five-piece have a few scattered dates scheduled:

Long Beach California Downtown (February 24)

Dubai Desert Rock Festival (March 10)

New York Bowery Ballroom (12)

Austin South by Southwest Stubb’s Bar-B-Que (14)
