UK doom/stoner metal band Flamebearer to release debut album »Brazen« on April 24th; watch a music video for latest single »Seed Is Sown«!

London, UK based doom/stoner metal band Flamebearer has announced their debut album, »Brazen«, which will be released independently on April 24th, 2024.

Flamebearer have already dropped music videos for the album’s first two singles, »Taste Hell« and »Seed Is Sown«.

Formed late 2021, Flamebearer are doom-tinged all out heavy metal featuring members of 1968, Decomposed, Oak, Mourn, Blood Island Raiders, Brule and Mocho Diablo. Fronted by Andy Valiant formally of Oak and current 1968 frontman, Flamebearer are inspired by classic 70s rock, 80s metal, all the way from The Cult to Cathedral.

The hard rocking quartet release their debut album »Brazen« on 24th April 2024 (independent). Pre-empting this Flamebearer are currently releasing singles from the LP, the latest being »Seed Is Sown«.

“The energy of songs on »Brazen« has come very naturally to us as really we just wanted to get people moving in the crowd and wake people back up a bit after time apart during lockdown. Its fully organic, very honest and a lot of fun to play. Generally we write lyrics that are more about lifting people up and making a person feel 10 foot tall rather than beaten down and racked with worry and overthinking.” — Andy Valiant

An interesting fact is that Valiant actually first saw Big Al, Flamebearer’s lead guitarist back in 2002 when he was only 16 and Big Al was playing in Blood Island Raiders supporting Orange Goblin at the Peel in Kingston. Valiant was so young he could still get a child bus ticket. Little did he know that he would be in a band with him 20 years later.

The band are currently building a fanbase within the stoner rock arena but are looking to broaden their horizons with their high energy and extremely upbeat performances.
