After eight months off the road working on the completion of THE SUN AND THE MOON, The Bravery are set to release their second Island Records album out May 22nd, first single “Time Won’t Let Me Go”. Fans can listen to a medley of three new Bravery songs “Believe,” “This Is Not The End” and lead single “Time Won’t Let Me Go” exclusively on their official website www.TheBravery.com
THE SUN AND THE MOON was produced and mixed by two-time Grammy Award winner Brendan O'Brien, best known for his work with Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Stone Temple Pilots, Neil Young, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and other multi-platinum acts. As reported on Billboard.com, “the album is tipped to include ‘The Ocean’ (an acoustic, string quartet-backed number, dealing with distances from loved ones) and other tracks include ‘Believe,’ ‘Bad Sun,’ and the harder-edged ‘Every Word from Your Mouth is A Knife in My Ear’.”
The new album follow -up the band’s self-titled Island debut, The Bravery (released March 29, 2005), which debuted #5 in the UK and #18 in the U.S. It spent 24 weeks on the Billboard 200 album chart. The album spun off the #12 Modern Rock track “An Honest Mistake,” whose memorable 25,000 domino-toppling video – distinguished by video director Michael Palmieri’s creative twist on Rube Goldberg mechanics - was nominated for the coveted MTV2 Award in 2005. The second single and video, “Unconditional,” took online honors at FUSE’s “Ovenfresh” program, beating out clips by Foo Fighters, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Death Cab For Cutie (among others). The Bravery were also part of Yahoo’s “Who’s Next” and “AOL Music’s Breaker program.”
Known for their energetic live shows, The Bravery toured the world headlining sold out shows in Europe, N. America, Asia and Australia. They also opened for U2 in Europe and supported Depeche Mode on their 2005 - 2006 world tour.
The Bravery – singer/guitarist and songwriter Sam Endicott, guitarist Michael Zakarin, bassist Michael Barreto Hindert, keyboardist John Conway, and drummer Anthony Burulcich – emerged from New York’s underground scene to pact with England’s Loog Records in 2003. In addition to “Artists To Watch” commendations for 2005 by MTV and Rolling Stone, the Bravery was named #1 “Most Promising Act of 2005” on the BBC News website’s “Sound Of 2005” poll. Since the release of their album, they have made tv appearances on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Last Call with Carson Daly, and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
