Obey The Brave have announced that they will return to the UK in July this year to play two headline shows:
16.07 London, Boston Music Room
17.07 Bridgend, Hobo
The band recently shared a new video for “Drama”, taken off the band’s third full-length album Mad Season which was released on June 2 via Epitaph.
As frontman Alex Erian explains, “Sonically and visually, this new song and video mark a new turn in our career. We stepped out of our comfort zone and drove ourselves to new limits, trying out different ideas while maintaining the heaviness and energy from our Young Blood days. As soon as I heard that riff, all I could hear in my head was Steve’s voice over and over again. He and I have been writing and performing together in Despised Icon for 15 years. That chemistry definitely shines on this single.”

The follow-up to 2014’s Salvation, Mad Season came to life during an especially tumultuous period for Obey The Brave (vocalist Alex Erian, guitarists John Campbell and Terrence McAuley, bassist Cory Wilson, and drummer Stevie Morotti). But after a lineup change and a series of false starts in the studio, the band emerged with their most ambitious yet viscerally potent album so far.
Co-produced by McAuley—who worked alongside engineer/mixer Dean Hadjichristou (Protest The Hero, Parkway Drive)—Mad Season also proves to be Obey The Brave’s most stylistically diverse work to date. In addition to featuring a collaboration with French Canadian rap group Loud Lary Ajust (on the beat-heavy “RIP”), Mad Season finds Erian expanding his vocal approach and introducing a singing style inspired by old-school punk.
