Biography

The Beginning By Sam Endicott

I grew up in DC and my life began with punk rock. I was all about the “harDCore” scene, Dischord records, DIY, and all that. Fugazi was my favorite band; I’ve seen them over 100 times.

John is from Santa Barbara. He surfs. He grew up on SoCal punk rock and 60’s reggae. He has an unsettlingly encyclopedic knowledge of early ... Read more in Amazon's The Bravery Store

Editorial Reviews

US only LP pressing. 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 on May 22nd. The first single 'Time Won't Let me Go' is literally racing up the charts. Available now, you can listen to a medley of three new Bravery songs 'Believe','This Is Not The End' and single 'Time Won't Let Me Go exclusively on their official website www.TheBravery.com. The Sun An 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-platinu acts. As reported on Billboard.com, the album is tipped to include`he Ocean' (an acoustic, string quartet-backed number, dealing with distances from loved ones). Other tracks include `Believe,' `Bad Sun,' and the harder edged `Every Word Is A Knife In My War.' This is the vinyl version.

The Bravery's latest album is incredible!

I disagree with other reviewers here--"The Sun And The Moon" is very much a continuation of The Bravery's first album. Sure, it has less synth, but it still retains that new wave/punk vibe of the late 1970's/early 1980's. Check out the Clash-like "London Calling" riff on "This Is Not The End".

That said, "The Sun And The Moon" is about the same as their last album. It has 7 good songs and some filler. In this case, "Believe", "This Is Not The End", "Every Word Is A Knife In My Ear", "Bad Sun", "Time Won't Let Me Go" and "Tragedy Bound" are the solid tracks whilst the five tracks that end the album are repetitious. I don't mind though, because I'd buy a third album from this band because they continue to show potential. I don't think they've figured out how to make every song count yet, but lyrically, "The Sun And The Moon" is more interesting than their debut. Take the lyrics on "Believe", "Time Won't Let Me Go" and "Tragedy Bound". I like the doom and gloom, the mild nihilism, the gray outlook--that's what made earlier punk and new wave stand apart from the sappy top 40.

I'd also recommend The Killers, Keane, Interpol, The Postal Service, Imogen Heap, Regina Spektor for other newer, similar sounding artists. If you want a history lesson, The Clash, Duran Duran, The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Cars, Blondie, U2, Simple Minds, Thompson Twins, Eurythmics, Howard Jones, Thomas Dolby, OMD, Kraftwerk, The Psychedelic Furs, Roxy Music should broaden your mind (and ears).

New York-based The Bravery sort of stormed onto the music scene in 2005 with their self-titled debut album, which contained one of the great singles of that year, "An Honest Mistake". After tireless touring, now finally comes the band's follow-up album.

On "The Sun and the Moon" (12 tracks; 40 min.), the Bravery does not falter far from the sound that made their debut album a success. The opener "Intro/Believe" brings a strong reggae undertone. First single "Time Won't Let Me Go" is a compelling ballad, Bravery-style. The songs generally flow well from one into another, and there are very few weak moments on te album. Other favorite tracks for me include "This Is Not the End", "Split Me Wide Open" (inviting an obvious comparison to the Cure), and "Above and Below", another one of those uptempo reggae-flavored songs. The only strike-out on the album is the pensive "Tragedy Bound", which misfires and simply is misplaced on this set.

This limited edition comes with a second CD (2 tracks, 6 min.). "Rat in the Walls" is a highly charged anthem that would've fitted nicely on the proper album. "Faces" is nice, but non-essential. Overall, while this certainly is not art with a capital "A", I have nevertheless found myself playing this album over and over again. This is uncomplicated but very entertaining from beginning to end.

As a last comment, am I the only one to notice how eerily similar this album compares to and sounds like the latest Kaiser Chiefs' album "Yours Truly, Angry Mob"? Listen to these 2 albums back-to-back and you'll see what I mean. That aside, the Bravery is coming to Cincinnati next month, and I can't wait to see how they sound live.

The Bravery's first CD was incredible. The Bravery Unfortunately that means that subsequent releases will always be compared to the original album.

This CD while delivering some great tracks, for lack of a better word is not as "catchy." While there is not a total absence of "catchyness" (lol, not even a real word) there could be more of it. That's the limit of my disappointment. There are some great tracks as well as the expected strong lyrical backing. The album has a definite deeper feel than the previous release as well as some real upbeat tracks. It has lasting sound to it and you wont get tired of it too quickly.

I give it 3 Stars. Give it a listen, form your own opinion.

With an album more in tune to the song than the dance this time around, The Bravery have put out one of the best albums this year.

There is a lush, exacting quality to the less electronic, more melodic sound here but songs like Time Won't Let Me go and Fistful of Sand show just how good their songs can be, without gimmicks or an over reverance to the 80s God bands like New Order and The Cure.

I'll take this group over the Killers or Interpol or a half a million other NY and elsewhere bands who have morphed the alternative 80s sounds into something listenable and categorically post punk.

With new instruments and a richer feel to almost every song, The Bravery have put themselves at the top of this over saturated rock and roll scene.

There are no weak tracks and The Ocean is a beautiful lightly techno ending to a great album.

Gone is the synthy dance tunes on their 2005 album. Instead, what we have is so much better: less infectious and more melody-driven, less The Killers (which started a public feud between Endicott and Flowers in 2005) and more The Bravery. The tracks are less polished and more rock-infused. If anything, this disc solidifies The Bravery's Brit rock musicality and at least to me, that's a great thing. "The Sun and the Moon" is a departure from their debut but it is still a very enjoyable listen. In fact, I may enjoy this album a tiny bit more than their previous release.
