Brave Rival, the multi-UK Blues Award-nominated rising stars, proudly announce the release of their third single, “Stand Up,” from their eagerly awaited sophomore album, “Fight or Flight,” set for release on August 16th.

“Stand Up” is a punchy, uplifting anthem about overcoming adversity and standing up for what you believe in, featuring the gritty harmonica tones of the incredibly talented Will Wilde.

Lindsey shares, “Stand Up encompasses the ‘fight’ element of our album. It’s all about having confidence in yourself, overcoming adversity in your life, and standing up for what you believe in.”

Chloe adds, “Stand Up features the incredible Will Wilde on harmonica. We’ve known Will for a while now through gigs together. He is insanely talented! During pre-production for the album, we performed with Will at the Tuesday Night Music Club and asked him to be part of our album.”

Will Wilde comments, “Of course, I said yes! A few weeks later, I drove up to the studio to record my parts. It was a great time. The song has a great riff with space for me to fill. Since recording, we’ve also worked together on a couple of songs for my own album, and we recently shot the video for ‘Stand Up’ too. Maybe you’ll see me pop up at a Brave Rival show down the road…”
The album launch show at Dingwalls will also feature Will Wilde as a special guest.

Tour dates include their homecoming show in Portsmouth on December 20th and two co-headline shows with These Wicked Rivers in November in Lincoln and Gloucester.

Fronted by the dynamic duo of vocalists Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick, Brave Rival stands out with a distinctive edge. The band is rounded out by the instrumental prowess of Donna Peters (Drums, Percussion, and Acoustic Guitar), Ed ‘the Shred’ Clarke (Guitars), and Billy ‘Danger’ Dedman (Bass Guitar).

Their previous singles, “Five Years On” and “Fairytale,” both won Classic Rock’s Tracks of the Week.

To celebrate the release of “Fight or Flight,” the band will host a spectacular launch show at Dingwalls on September 12th, featuring special guests, the Deborah Bonham Band.

2024 is set to be a pivotal year for Brave Rival with the release of “Fight or Flight,” an album that takes their signature sound to new heights. Drawing influences from Heart, Zeppelin, and Fleetwood Mac, Brave Rival is poised to dominate the rock scene.

“One of the best bands in the country right now and one of our biggest hopes for the future, music can and should be this breathtakingly good,” High praise from Paul Monkhouse, reviewing a recent show for Metal Talk.
