Lonely The Brave - 'The Day's War'

Watch out Biffy Clyro - these patient rockers are coming for your crown

  • Release Date 01 Sep, 2014
  • Record Label Hassle
8 / 10
Cambridge rockers Lonely The Brave have taken their time - four years to be precise - with this debut album. In an age when some bands sacrifice quality for a quick back, it's a courageous move. The five-piece have used the time since they formed to make the record they wanted. Care and precision are present throughout 'The Day's War', whether in the insistent, neurotic drive of 'Trick Of The Light', or the breathless uplift of 'Victory Line'. Carefully constructed and wonderfully cohesive, it's an album or earnest, yearning rock that shows Lonely The Brave are aiming for the fire cannons and shirtless mega-gigs that Biffy Clyro have worked so hard for.
