Premiered literally minutes ago on Radio One‘s The Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter, Lonely The Brave have shared the first taste of their upcoming second album.
Check out ‘Black Mire‘ below.
The new record is “definitely more of a progressive album”, explains drummer Gavin ‘Mo’ Edgeley. “There’s been a lot of time, effort and thought put into reworking the songs. There’s some electronic stuff on there, and some heavy, ballsy rock numbers with a more progressive slant, but at the same time it’s still us. [The progression is] something we could never get rid of if we tried.”
“We went into the studio with what we thought were finished arrangements, and then we worked with Ross (Orton) to make them the best that they can be,” he continues. “He is the most relaxed dude, and his work is so diverse, which is exactly what we wanted from a producer. We didn’t want to go in with just a ‘rock producer’; it was the fact that he’s worked with M.I.A. and Arctic Monkeys that was just a massive fucking bonus to us. It was a bit of a curveball that nobody was expecting, but he knows what he’s doing so well that he was basically always right and we always agreed on everything. He pushes us hard but we get on really well with him.”
Lonely The Brave’s second album is due out at some point this year.
