BRAVE GIANT

Brave Giant’s debut album ‘White, Pink + Blue’ will be released on Friday 4th October. To coincide with its release the band is going on tour, the ‘WHITE, PINK + BLUE’ TOUR!

Tickets are now on sale here for the band’s headline shows at

Roisin Dubh, Galway on Saturday October 12th:

&

Dolans, Limerick on Friday October 11th: https://secure.tickets.ie/Listing/EventInformation/40355/brave-giant

Other dates also announced for this tour are Cyprus Avenue on October 17th and The Acoustic Room at the INEC on Friday October 18th.

Emmett Collum (percussion), Mark Prunty (bass, guitar/vocals), Podge Gill (guitar/vocals), Ross McNerney (banjo/mandolin/keys), are Brave Giant. A band rooted in an inherited love for trad & folk, moulded, morphed and inspired by indie & alternative influences.

Decorate Your Mind, the first single from Brave Giant’s debut album and described by Hot Press as “a powerhouse of a track, as anthemic and propulsive as it is dark and atmospheric.” stormed into the Top 3 on release last month.

This headline tour is announced against the back drop of additional tickets being released last month for Brave Giant’s biggest headline show to date, The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Saturday 9th November. We believe these additional tickets, are now in limited supply and the show is on target to sell out before the end of the month.

In just three years, Brave Giant has gone from selling out two nights Upstairs at Whelans in Dublin to the band’s biggest headline show to date at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Saturday November 9th. This summer, the four-piece were delighted to be part of the festival line up at #DDFIO (Dubai Duty Free Irish Open) festival in Lahinch, gave a storming top-three billing performance at Kaleidoscope Festival in June, and likewise last weekend on the main stage at Indiependence Festival 2019 and kicked off 2019 festival season on June 1st with Day Tripper Festival in Waterford alongside Gavin James, Hudson Taylor and Saarloos.

Live highlights from last year include sharing a stage with Hozier, Walking on Cars and other highly-respected Irish artists at the 2FM Christmas Ball at the 3Arena in December, two further sold-out headline shows in Dublin at The Button Factory and opening band’s live record in London with three sell-out headline shows.

Since releasing its first commercial track in 2016 (‘Lordy Lordy’), Brave Giant has sold-out all its shows in Dublin together with numerous shows across the country and had a string of top 5 singles including The Time I Met The Devil and two number one’s with Way To Love and Somebody’s Someone. Opening for Picture This on the final night of the band’s five-night Olympia run in 2017 will always be very special. Not shy to festival season either, in the three years to date some of the band’s summer festival performances include Longitude, Sea Sessions, and Electric Picnic. Indeed in 2018, over 5,000 people turned out to see the band live in their home county at the Longford Town Festival.

Brave Giant has also seen the band’s Spotify streams grow to over 2.5 million during the last year, and online video views in the same region.

The debut album, White, Pink + Blue was recorded earlier this spring with musician and producer Gavin Glass of Orphan Recording in the production chair.

“We can’t wait to share this body of work. The album sees us take a new direction. “We believe we’ve developed a great deal musically and lyrically!”

“We’ve explored new sounds and have drawn on influences from even more musical genres. Heavy synths, spacey guitars, driving drums and a mandolin like you’ve never heard before. The core elements that make Brave Giant what it is are still there, we’ve just added some magic, we hope!”
