Barrow return for acclaimed indie folk act Speak, Brother
INDIE folk band Speak, Brother will be returning to Barrow as they tour in support of their brand-new album.
The Midlands outfit will once again appear at the Sunday Night Live event at Costa Coffee, in Dalton Road, having last appeared their two years ago.
Boasting a powerful indie folk and rock sound with subtle hymnal and gospel tones, their story-based anthems have drawn comparisons to the likes of Of Monsters and Men, Kodaline and Fleet Foxes.
Having played shows and received airplay across the UK including BBC Radio 2, they now set to return with their new single, Magnificent, from their debut upcoming album, and will embark on their headline UK Tour in November.
The eagerly anticipated full-length, Young & Brave, is to be released in spring 2018.
Magnificent is inspired by the beauty and innocence of a young child, that could be born into the worst of situations.
Vulnerable and honest vocals combine effortlessly with an ethereal musical soundscape to create a sound that launches Speak, Brother to the forefront of their genre.
Their music has already earned them airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC WM, BBC Introducing, and their single Lions Roar hit number 14 in the iTunes chart.
Fronted by James Herring, they were informally known as the James Herring Band until the end of 2013.
Armed with the experience of festival appearances at events such as Birmingham Artsfest, Godiva, Banbury Folk Festival and Folk On The Water, the five-piece are poised to release a set of fresh new singles in the coming months.
Early single Dry Bones received widespread praise and earned Speak, Brother an honourable mention at the 2014 International Songwriters' Competition.
They play Costa Coffee, in Barrow, on Sunday November 5, and entrance is free.
