Following the recent release of their critically-acclaimed sophomore LP Ardor, Montreal three-piece BIG|BRAVE have announced a midwest / east coast North American tour in support of the record. The band will tour from Canada down to Chicago before meeting up with legendary noise rockers UNSANE - check out the full tour routing listed below.
Out now on Southern Lord, Ardor features three songs that clock in for a 40-minute-long LP that is chock full of swirling static, booming guitars, powerful drums—all the hallmarks that have made them one of experimental rock’s most exciting acts today.
Since their formation in 2012, BIG|BRAVE demonstrate the fluidity of experimental rock when elaborated into vast, abstract, and often hypnotic sounds, saturated in soulbaring emotion. The trio put everything into their music, until there's nothing left to give. Their particular art in musical refinement expands ever gradually, unfurling into a very heavy, strong, and elevating force. As comfortable as they are with tidal waves of sound, BIG|BRAVE is unafraid to experiment with silence, oscillating between sparse, gentle arrangements and deep swells of noise.
