Lonely The Brave Have Released A Brand-New Single, Distant Light
Despite two members of the band working for the NHS, they somehow found the time to finish off Distant Light in lockdown, and are “adding the finishing touches to album three” right now.

“We find ourselves in trying times at present,” Lonely The Brave explain. “As you may know, some of us are NHS key workers and as a result we know health and well-being is so incredibly important. Recent global events have shed a light and awareness of how we can all do our bit to ensure we’re acting with caution but also positively.
“Escapism through music, film, art and literature is a huge thing for us, and we hope for you guys too. With that in mind, we wanted to share Distant Light, a song we finished off during this isolation period. We hope some of you can borrow from it. Let’s look after each other.”
The sentiment of providing an escape for fans is something that frontman Jack Bennett alluded to when first single Bound dropped, too, teasing: “We’ve got releases, festivals and hopefully our own dates to announce. From this point on, we’re planning to engage regularly – it’s all super-positive right now. With everything going on worldwide, I guess we’re just all hoping it’s a small welcomed distraction for people to grab hold of.”
