BIG | BRAVE announce European tour dates in April and May 2022

Canadian sonic experimentalist BIG | BRAVE have announced an extensive European tour in support of their latest album, VITAL which was released in late June via Southern Lord.

Initially formed as a duo of Robin Wattie and Mathieu Ball they started writing ambient/minimalistic folk songs. When long time friend Louis Alexandre Beauregard joined on drums, the goal still remained the same, however following an incident where Wattie’s acoustic guitar broke, a friend’s electric guitar was used as a replacement – the sound was expanded when larger amps that Ball had in storage were utilised. That amplitude was then used as a compositional tool, almost becoming an instrument – yet BIG | BRAVE didn’t abandon their ambient core, instead they understood that the juxtaposition of both was the direction to follow; a journey they are continuing upon with their fifth album ‘Vital’, essentially the album is built around minimal chords augmented with layer upon layer of effects, delays and vocals.


A full European tour has been announced which includes ten UK dates held in some of the best regional venues in the country; following the positive reception to ‘Vital’ demand is expected to be high. If you get the chance, we heartily recommend you see BIG | BRAVE.
