We first discovered Brigade shortly after Fightstar arrived on the scene in 2004. Then - the trio, consisting of Will Simpson, Naoto Hori and Jumpei Hirano were Fightstar's primary support act, and benefitted from the buzz surrounding 'Simpson's brother's band'.
Now though, they are in a debateably far more promising place than there then 'superiors'. After spending the last four years scrupulously touring the UK, (saying goodbye to Jumpei on drums, pinching James Plant from The Ghears, gaining Fim from Unit On, saying goodbye to Fim and then getting Andrew Kearton!) and building up a very loyal fanbase, the release of their second LP 'Come Morning We Fight' will see Brigade continue to get stronger.
