Double LP is on 'half turquoise / half crystal clear' vinyl. Hand-numbered.

To celebrate Hassle Records 15th Anniversary as a label, they present the expanded 'Victory Edition' of the fantastic debut album from alt-rockers Lonely The Brave, on vinyl for the very first time. Heavy-hearted, and giant melodic alt-rock songs for the fans of Twin Atlantic, Deaf Havana, Fightstar and Lower Than Atlantis.

We saw the band play first-on a three band bill at what was meant to be one the last shows at The Dublin Castle. It was cold. Wet. A Tuesday night. We didn’t want to be there. We thought we’d stay for two/three songs and slope off (let’s be honest, sloping off is one of a record company person’s main skills). That didn’t happen. The band started. Big sound for a little pub. The singer, David Jakes, came on. And stood obscured, to the side, with his back to the audience. He had/has performance anxiety that would eventually lead to him getting alopecia, losing his hair, and ultimately leaving the band. He also had the voice of a God. That shouldn’t happen in a small pub, first-on of three, on a Tuesday night. When it’s dark and cold in London. But it did. We signed the band quickly and embarked on a roller coaster six years of two albums out, success, pain, elation and, ultimately, disappointment. Big sound. Big emotion. Brilliant band.
