Here at The Colour of Vinyl, we’ve been massive fans of Leeds quartet Brawlers since day one. Seeing them tear into a near-empty show in Devizes like it was a sold out academy last summer proved that despite being from other (quite successful) bands, they were in this for the right reasons; to make music and have some fun.
Brawlers have loads of news right now. The punk rockers – whose knack for short and spiky social commentary has seen them added to Kerrang’s list of the “20 Hottest Band’s In The World Right Now’ (amongst a TON of other accolades, plaudits and praise) – give a fine lesson on what it’s like to be young and dumb in this crazy mixed up world of ours!
Brawlers and Milk Teeth have announced a short co-headline tour this April. The bands will take in 4 shows in the spring, which you can see the dates for below. Let’s hope they get to the rest of the country soon!
01/04 – The Hop, Wakefield
02/04 – Owl Sanctuary, Norwich
03/04 – Skint Fest, Chesterfield
04/04 – Studio 2, Liverpool
BRAWLERS have revealed plans to release their debut album titled ‘Romantic Errors of Our Youth’ on April 6th via Alcopop! Records. This much anticipated full-length follows their 2014 EP ‘I Am A Worthless Piece Of Shit’ which, teamed with a heavy touring schedule, infectious disposition for good times and intent to spread the good word of rock ‘n’ roll, earned the band loyal fans all over the UK and saw them cited in Kerrang!’s ‘20 Hottest Bands In The World Right Now’, among other glowing accolades.
The track-listing for ‘Romantic Errors of Our Youth’ is as follows :
2. Drink & Dial
3. Holding Back
4. High Again
6. Two Minutes
7. (I’m Having A) Nervous Breakdown
10. Romantic Errors of our Youth
Already having garnered plays on Radio 1 and XFM, lead track “Drink & Dial” is currently available to stream right here:
Comments frontman Harry George Johns, “This song is about trying to not make those calls, those mistakes we all make, often after alcohol, mostly after heartache – but I’ve made these mistakes and I’m telling you now, don’t not drink and dial, just don’t drink!”.
Brawlers will also be main support to Real Friends on their upcoming UK tour :
March 19 @ Sound Control, Manchester
March 21 @ Asylum, Birmingham
March 22 @ Underworld, London
Further touring plans, including various festival appearances will be revealed in due course.
“Hands down the best new live band in Britain, Brawlers are making the kind of impact on the gig circuit Gallows had back in 2007- you come away from their shows elated and ready to punch someone in the face just to prove how alive you are. Fantastic pop tunes and a grimy punk edge.” – Drowned in Sound
There’s always a difficult job trying to predict which bands are going to have a massive year. Some flop, some fly, and some appear from nowhere and take the world by storm. We had a hit and miss time of it last January, so here’s the attempt for 2015…
