Montreal’s BIG|BRAVE have announced new tour dates for this Summer, including shows with Sunn O))) and Deafkids. The band continues to play live in support of their ‘A Gaze Among Them‘ LP, which was released in May via Southern Lord Recordings. Check out the tour dates below.

Following recent tour dates in Europe with MyDisco as well as North American tours with Primitive Man, Dreadought, Planning For Burial, and more, BIG|BRAVE will tour the Western US in late August and early September. Leading with two shows on their own on August 15 and 16, they’ll headline from the Upper Midwest down the West Coast with support from Brazilian trio Deafkids through August 30. BIG|BRAVE will then join up with Sunn O))), supporting the group for a trek across the Southwest and West Coast from September 1 – 9.  BIG|BRAVE will then tour their way back home with another set of headlining shows. Watch for more tour dates to be announced in the days ahead. 

Since their inception seven years ago, they have remained loyal to a triad of key principles: space, volume, and raw emotion. That commitment to style and form has never been more evident than with ‘A Gaze Among Them’. Doubling down on their explosive chemistry, earsplitting dynamism, and sonic discipline, this new LP finds the trio more confident than ever. ‘A Gaze Among Them’ was spawned by a simple, but no less profound, question: “How do we take very little and make something bigger than what we actually have?” Experimenting with stark minimalism, melodic tension, and Wattie’s staggering vocal strength, the album serves as a culmination of BIG|BRAVE’s near-decade of musical fearlessness. Anchored by their three-person lineup, ‘A Gaze Among Them’ also enlists a who’s who of guest talent. With Thierry Amar (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion) on Contrabass and Seth Manchester on synth overdubs, ‘A Gaze Among Them’ is BIG|BRAVE’s most evolved, inclusive work yet.
