Lonely the Brave to headline Belfast’s Dr Marterns Stand for Something Tour

lonely the braveAs a brand inherently linked to music, Dr. Martens remains one of the most culturally relevant and iconic British brands of all time. All across the world gig goers continue to adopt Airwair as their uniform of choice.

The Stand For Something Tour 2015 salutes these music lovers by bringing some of the most exciting bands in the UK to intimate venues across the country for up close and personal live experiences.

Playing the tour for the second year in a row moving from support to headliner and with a summer of huge festival dates behind them, Lonely The Brave‘s ascent to the big leagues is surely imminent over the next few months. With an emotionally charged, stadium-sized sound, the Cambridge rockers have unsurprisingly built a remarkably loyal fan base over the last few years, proving themselves as one of the UK’s most exciting live bands.

What do you stand for, Lonely The Brave? “I really feel that, in life, you’ve got to try and be yourself. The older I get, the more I realise this. If you’re a bit shy like me and someone tries to talk down to you because of it, just give them a death stare. They don’t like it.”

Dublin’s Only Rivals play main support and are a prime example of the UK’s rock scene being in rude health. Huge choruses and equally sizeable riffs are the order of the day and they are a perfect fit for the Stand For Something Tour.

WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR, ONLY RIVALS? Being true to ourselves and trying to be the best band we can possibly be. Also, burritos. We stand for burritos.”

Strummerville supported band R51 will be opening the evening in Belfast’s Limelight on 7th November 2015.
