Rounding off an impressive 2012 in style (or hailing in 2013 in with a bang, depending on how you want to look at it), BRACE released ‘Living’ from their upcoming EP ‘Conscious Thinking’ on New Years Eve.
A crushing reminder about just how grim the Granite City can be, BRACE are a veritable musical tour-de-force; a heady mixture of sludgy guitars, frenetic metal drumming and guttural screaming. BRACE are no stranger to bleak Northern nights in sweaty, crowded venues. Their new EP ‘Conscious Thinking’ is an exercise in controlled demolition, and ‘Living’ is just a taste of what you can expect from these guys in 2013.
Formed in late 2011, they quickly demonstrated why they are a band to watch, releasing a split with fellow Scots Cleric, entitled ‘A Swollen Tongue and High Hopes’. However, the band’s reputation in Scotland really comes off the back of their insane and unpredictable live show. Seriously, we’d be lying if we said there hasn’t been a moment during their live show where we didn’t genuinely fear for our lives, as singer Adam Dempster leaves the stage behind to get in people’s faces, while the rest of the band lose their collective minds in unison to the aural chaos they’re creating.
2013 is going to take BRACE to new heights, so take the opportunity to get to know them now before the secret’s out.
