Lonely the Brave are an English alternative rock band from Cambridge. They were formed in 2008. The members include Mark Trotter (guitar), Gavin Edgeley (drums), David Jakes (lead vocalist), Andrew Bushnen (bass), and Ross Smithwick (guitar) who joined the band in 2014. The band takes inspiration from an eclectic set of sources, such as Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and Deftones. One journalist remarked that this culminates into "Biffy Clyro-shaped stadium rock".
