The Brevet w/ Riot on a Sunday at Volcanic
Wed, Jan 24 at 8pm
Passion brought The Brevet together, and it defines their music. Their very name represents a Civil War rank awarded to individuals who went above and beyond the call of duty without the expectation of extra monetary compensation. In other words, The Brevet traditionally act out of their passion for and dedication to music. That spirit courses through their songs, and it’s the reason why they’ve quietly built a palpable national buzz.
Since the release of their 2013 independent debut Battle of the Heart, the quartet—Aric Chase Damm [vocals, guitar], Michael Jones [piano], David Aguiar [drums, percussion], John Kingsley [guitar]—has landed high-profile placements throughout film and television, including The Good Lie, Ashby, 90210, Growing Up Fisher, American Idol, The MLB Network and more. They’ve also earned ink in Los Angeles Times, American Songwriter, and OC Weekly, among many others. Their forthcoming 2016 sophomore effort, American Novel, elevates the group’s rock-tinged cinematic Americana sound to heavenly heights.
“We want to take listeners on a journey with American Novel,” exclaims Aric. “Each song blends into the next, weaving together this adventure. In many ways, it feels like our first album as a defined band.”
