As alternative rock goes, you'd struggle to find better than the anthemic sound of Lonely The Brave. Formed in 2009, Cambridge-based Lonely The Brave seek inspiration from a variety of sources, including Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Biffy Clyro and more, culminating in a beautiful, almost cinematic sound.

Debut album The Day's War generated hugely favourable reviews, with Digital Spy noting "it swings between strapping, addictive rock melodies which make you want to run marathons and deeply-felt tales of self-destruction that are better therapy than any pep talk Oprah Winfrey can hand out".

Guitarists Mark Trotter and Ross Smithwick create this wall of sound through their trusted Marshall amps - Mark with the 1962 'Bluesbreaker', 1959SLP Head and 1960AHW Cab, and Ross with the 2245 JTM45 Head, JCM900 4100 Head and 1960AHW Cab.
