Braver Than Fiction
The Leadmill - see stage times
Forged during the summer of 2013, word of Braver than Fiction’s quirky live presence spread swiftly. Within a year they had been invited to appear at events such as Magner’s Cider Original Sessions and The International Guitar Festival of Great Britain. The band opened for indie legends The Wedding Present at Sheffield’s illustrious music venue, The Leadmill during their home city's renowned urban music festival, Tramlines (2014) and played to hundreds of revellers at Manchester’s celebrated Food Festival. Then, in January 2015, the band was forced into hiatus, when their vocalist was diagnosed with cancer. This spawned an uneasy semi-silence for more than twelve months but with their singer in remission, Braver than Fiction returned in 2016 with a succession of live gig dates, fresh material and a new EP, The Fool, released on 28th October 2016.
