LONELY THE BRAVE


Cambridge band Lonely The Brave have been together for eight years, bringing their anthemic rock and emotional lyrics to the masses. They’ve supported massive acts like The Deftones and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Radio 1 are also big fans.

I think you have to take something from good and bad elements of life for inspiration, this was certainly the case when writing Tings Will Matter. Te songs are always about subjects that are important to us, especially in terms of Dave's lyrics which are inspired by these
