Hello everyone -
you join us in mid-November as we’re now quite some way towards recording our next Extended Play Single (EP).
I know what you’re going to say – what, another one ? (Yes, ‘DNA’ came out as a 20-minute EP with alternative takes and non-album material back in July alongside its parent recording, the album ‘Bloodlines’).
This one is going to be different and far more important. Please read on.
As you know, we play many pubs and clubs in Leicester in order to raise money for various local charities. The last couple of Christmases we were asked to play the ‘Shakespeare’s Head’. The management there chose the RAINBOWS CHILDRENS’ HOSPICE as their charity of choice, and we’ll be supporting them again when we return there on Sat 20th December for our special Christmas gig.
For those who are unfamilar with RAINBOWS, they provide practical and emotional support to families and children in the event of those children suffering terminal illness. It’s an amazingly difficult thing they do, and they do it amazingly well.
So, since many of you have asked us to record the versions of traditional Christmas carols, we play live, we’ve decided to put these on the new single ‘To Bring You Home’ and sell the EP at £3, with ALL the money going to Rainbows.
The tracks are already sounding great, with all the usual suspects involved from the ‘Bloodlines’ sessions. This is Christmas music, but definitely has the Brave sound all over it !
We hope the single will be ready for the first week of December, so if you want to support a worthy cause , then please help us by pre-ordering the single. We hope to sell it in various Leicester retail outlets, but since it’s a great stocking filler for your friends and family, you might want to order a few – e-mail us and let us know in the next few days, please, so we can manufacture the right amount.
Running Order will be:
To Bring You Home
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
O Holy Night
Thanks for taking the time to read this e-mail. look forward to seeing you at a gig soon, and e-mail those orders in !
God Bless -
PG and the boys from BRAVE.
