Brisbane's The Brave are back with their second album 'Aura', out April 5 via UNFD. The epic new single 'Technicolor' is the next taste of what's to come from the Brisbane band after the release of last year's single 'Ethereal', which was named Best Heavy Song at the 2018 Queensland Music Awards.
Formed in Brisbane in 2013, The Brave quickly started turning heads with 2014 EP ‘Endless’, which captured their particular brand of lightning in a bottle, then continued with the critically acclaimed breakout debut album 'Epoch' in 2016, which won plaudits worldwide from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Kerrang, Triple J and more. 'Aura' takes that groundwork and builds on it in striking fashion.
The anthemic 'Technicolor' leads the charge and establishes them as inventive, emotive and dynamic keepers of the flame, taking the energy and chaos of a youthful mistake and recasts it as something quite different. “It’s about one of my first experiences of getting a little too loose when I was young,” remembers frontman Nathan Toussaint. “That feeling of everything around you not being what it seems and wanting to get back to normality. It was an experience that is funny now to think back on, but at the time I remember thinking I was never going to be the same again.”
'Aura' is a bold snapshot of a band seeking to use the simple power of music to move people. Threaded throughout are themes of change, love and loss, and taken as a whole body of work it’s sure to further establish The Brave as one of the most forward-thinking and exciting bands in heavy music in 2019.
In addition to today's announcement, The Brave have also announced their 'Technicolor' single tour, with headline dates in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to celebrate the arrival of the band's new album. They will also be special guests on In Hearts Wake's upcoming Queensland tour.
