With Brave Giant’s online views and Spotify streams both nearing the 1 million mark at time for writing, the band have just announced their next Dublin headline show at The Button Factory on Saturday September 22nd. Tickets priced €14.50 (including booking fee) go on sale 10am, Friday 23rd March. The Button Factory concert follows the band’s previous six headline shows selling out ,over an 18mth period, in the capital.
To coincide with the tickets for The Button Factory Show going on sale this Friday morning, March 23rd, they are delighted to bring you the new single, ‘Dakota Dakota’ is already a major hit in the band’s live show, and this single version will go on release on April 12th, with pre-sale live later this month.
In addition to announcing the band’s new headline show, Brave Giant will also perform alongside Hudson Taylor on their upcoming Irish tour. They guest at The Opera House in Cork (March 29th), The Big Top in Limerick (April 1st), and Ruby Room @ TF Royal, Castlebar (April 2nd).
Brave Giant is also confirmed to play Sea Sessions 2018 on Sunday, June 24th, and The Groove Festival on Saturday July 7th.
The new single, ‘Dakota’, follows October 2017’s No1 ‘Way To Love’. Brave Giant has received some wonderful support from Irish radio since their first commercial single (‘Lordy Lordy’, in 2016). The last (nearing) two years have been remarkable for the independent band. ‘The Time I Met The Devil’ single from 2017 has enjoyed almost 100,000 views alone (featuring Irish actor and comedian, Joe Rooney) adding to the band’s impressive overall tally of 1,000,000 online video views. It’s the song that also resulted in a Late Late Show invite last spring for the boys!
2017, built perfectly on the band’s growing list of followers. The Longford based four-piece celebrated their first official No 1 on iTunes, played to an enthusiastic, and large band of followers (and some new fans too) on their debut Longitude outing, sold out a number of regional headline Irish shows, together with making a trip stateside for the Milwaukee Irish Festival, and a headline show in Rockwood Music Hall in New York. The year concluded with Brave Giant playing their biggest headline Dublin show to date at The Academy. It was the band’s 6th consecutive headline-show to sell out in the capital.
Previously, winning Joe.ie’s Le Crunch competition, joining Gavin James and Roisin O as musical ambassadors for Bord na Móna’s inaugural #HearthSessions campaign together with being invited to guest with Picture This still remain highlights since 2016. Formed in 2011, Mark Prunty (guitar/vox), Podge Gill (guitar/vox), Ross McNerney (banjo/mandolin), Emmett Collum (drums) are the four young Longford men of Brave Giant. Their love of Irish music is evident in their sound, a skilfully achieved blend of rock, folk and alternative influences.
