Brigade are to release their debut album on May 1st. Entitled Lights, the long-player was produced by Joe Gibb and will emerge through Mighty Atom Records.
Apparently it's filled with a "deliciously expansive sound, (straddling) the genres of rock, indie, pop and dark atmos-rock". So there y'go. Also, the press types behind the release are keen to stress that "while Brigade frontman Will's brother is Fightstar's Charlie Simpson, Brigade are not living in the shadows of anyone or relying on publicity stunts of name checking at every opportunity". Isn't that a name check, right there? Oh, and the two bands tour together, too (the dates come just after the release of Fightstar's debut album, Grand Unification)...

DiScuss: Wouldn't it be so much better if the Simpson siblings just formed a three-piece pop group a la The Bee Gees or Alvin and the Chipmunks?
