Upcoming Release: BRAVESTATION – Giants & Dreamers

May 16, 2012

Bandcamp / Facebook / Twitter

Tribal-pop fans rejoice, Toronto trailblazers BRAVESTATION have announced the release of their debut LP Giants & Dreamers on July 10th.

The band teased fans back in February with the release of the album’s first single Signs of the Civilized, and now they’ve just released a second single, Tides of the Summit. Both songs are available as free downloads on their Bandcamp, where you can also pre-order the album.

BRAVESTATION’s intriguing 80′s tinged “quirky tribal pop” has caught the attention of international tastemakers, as they played the Evolution Festival mainstage with IGGY POP AND THE STOOGES and THE KILLS on their UK tour last summer. More recently they played a bustling showcase at The Horseshoe Tavern for CMW.

The Giants & Dreamers release party will be at The Drake Underground on Sat, July 7th. We’ll certainly be there, will you?
