BIG|BRAVE announce new album “A Gaze Among Them” due 10th May 2019 plus UK live dates
Montreal based BIG|BRAVE have announced their incoming fourth LP, “A Gaze Among Them”, set for release May 10th via Southern Lord (US and EU). A brief trailer for the album, as well as its cover art and other details have been revealed. The band has also posted North American and European spring tour dates supporting the album, these include two dates in the UK, one of which is at the prestigious Raw Power Festival.
Since their inception in 2012, BIG|BRAVE has explored terrains of experimental rock with a clear focus on the key principles; space, volume, and raw emotion. The essence of BIG|BRAVE’s magic has always been the way they balance these dynamics, and particularly how much sheer power comes from the beautifully quiet moments.
“A Gaze Among Them” features Robin Wattie (vocals, electric guitar, guitar amp, bass amp), Mathieu Ball (electric guitar, guitar amps), and Loel Campbell (drums) with a raft of guest appearances from the likes of Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion).
“A Gaze Among Them” track listing:
1. Muted Shifting Of Space
2. Holding Pattern
3. Body Individual
4. This Deafening Verity
The album was recorded with Seth Manchester at Machine with Magnets, Rhode Island. The image adorning the cover, was created by Wattie, further demonstrates how BIG|BRAVE has blossomed. The trio sounds rejuvenated and confident, and “A Gaze Among Them” is the sound of a band truly honing their craft and feeling totally satisfied with it. Compelling. Necessary. Important.
