We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Brigades’ new EP True Blue (listen below), which is scheduled to be officially released tomorrow, July 27, 2018. You can purchase the EP digitally via iTunes and Google Play, as well as physically on cassette through the band’s merch store.
Brigades vocalist Darren Young commented on the EP:
‘True Blue’ definitely stands out from our other records because I feel it’s something new & refreshing compared to how depressing and dark things got on ‘Indefinite.’ I think in some parts of ‘True Blue’ it shovels back to the roots between my writing for ‘The Last Laugh’ and ‘Crocodile Tears,’ then is mushed together with this new aesthetic that was created from everything that happened, making this transformation more exciting than it would have been for a direct release right after ‘Indefinite.’
I think myself and Brigades as a whole needed to hibernate and sleep off some stress factors. These songs on ‘True Blue’ are authentic, emotional, and raw even, but give off more of a fun ‘ready to move forward and not look back’ vibe to them.
