New Light Brigade Short Info

New Light Brigade are a melodic folk/rock group based in East Yorkshire, UK.
Their performances are energetic and emotional and much of their music is centered on catchy choruses and atmospheric interludes, while their style covers melodic rock through to more driving indie tracks.
The band recently reformed after previously disbanding in 2011.
They have performed at national festivals such as Beverley & Cambridge folk festivals and the Edinburgh Fringe as well as live shows for BBC Introducing and reached Number 1 on the IAC music charts in the USA, and No.3 on the Indiestore chart and the track 'Beauty at high tide' has been heard by millions across the globe. 2016 has been a trying year due to injuries to band members but they have still managed to perform the original rock marquee at Tribfest, headline the Legends club for live in Barnsley, and recently performed at the Rec Rock festival in Derbyshire, as well as a live acoustic radio show for Beverley FM.
They are currently recording their next ep which will feature a new single called 'Heartbreaker'.
The title hints at another song about lost love, but it is anything but; instead being a poignant take on life itself being the heartbreaker.
