Brave Giant Share First Single from Debut Album

‘Decorate Your Mind’, the first single from Brave Giant’s debut album goes on sale this Friday July 5th. It’s a powerhouse of a track and sees a slightly new direction for the band.

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, being on the cusp of selling out almost five months out from show day. An additional allocation of tickets has been released this week and now on sale via ticketmaster.ie 

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.

Last weekend (June 29th) the four-piece gave a storming top-three billing performance at Kaleidoscope Festival Co. Wicklow. This will be followed by the #DDFIO (Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Festival in Lahinch next Saturday evening July 6th. 

Having kicked off 2019 festival season on June 1st with Day Tripper Festival in Waterford alongside Gavin James, Hudson Taylor and Saarloos, they band’s season also includes a main stage appearance at Indiependence main stage on August 2nd.

Highlights from 2018 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, a further No 1 single here at home with ‘Somebody’s Someone’, two sold-out headline shows at The Button Factory Dublin 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 numerous shows in Dublin and 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’. Not shy to festival season either, in the three years to date some of the band’s summer festival performances include Longitude, Sea Sessions, Electric Picnic, Groove Festival and Sunflower Festival. 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 was recorded earlier this spring with musician and producer Gavin Glass of Orphan Recording in the production chair. The album is currently being mastered and nearing completion. 

“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!”
