UK Review: Brother & Bones, Omaha Tour 2015
It has been several years in the making but Brother & Bones have just released their self-titled debut album. On the back of this they have set out on the Omaha tour taking in several UK dates plus a lot of European dates. Fortunately they always remember the huge fanbase here in Cornwall and returned once more to play at the Princess Pavilions in Falmouth.
Support for the Falmouth date came from local lads The Interceptors and St Agnes based Auction For The Promise Club. Up first were The Interceptors, who are slowly gaining quite a following on the local music scene. After seeing them live it’s easy to see why.
They are only youngsters but have an impressive live sound but had some technical problems on the night. They didn’t let this deter them and although the venue wasn’t packed at this point, those who had arrived early seemed to enjoy what they were hearing. I am sure I will come across these guys again and I’m already looking forward to it.
Up next was Auction For The Promise Club who I had seen live once before and had been waiting to catch them live again for some time. They had really impressed me the first time I had seen them with just their twin guitar a drums and proved they were no one-hit-wonder with another fantastic set. I am surprised that they are still just playing local gigs and haven’t made a break yet, but if you ever get the chance to see them do it whilst you can. With two superb support acts on the bill, Brother & Bones had set the bar high but they were about to take us to the next level.
Having seen them several times in the past I love the way they perform live and, finally, their debut album was released. There seemed to be a buzz of excitement in the air. From the start it was evident that their stage show was benefiting from their excessive touring and it seemed much more polished than previous shows I had seen.
The sound was better, the lighting was fancier and the band looked more relaxed. It was as if the release of their debut album had taken the weight off their shoulders. My only disappointment was that my favourite song was no longer in the set but the new songs more than made up for this. The Pavilions once again played their part in making this a great night with their friendly staff and security staff that blended in and were, luckily, not called to action.
