Braid streams title track of ‘No Coast,’ adds tour dates

Braid Stream "No Coast"

Braid is now streaming “No Coast,” the title track off their forthcoming album and first LP in over 16 years.

The quartet’s return with new material on No Coast is more of a rebirth of the band rather than a simple reunion.

“I think we feel like we want this to be an introduction to Braid more than a follow-up to previous material,” guitarist and vocalist Chris Broach said. “We wanted to capture the spirit and dynamic tension that comes from having two guys up front that have a lot to say and a rhythm section that helps shape the songs. We spent a lot of time looking to where we could give each instrument its own space on the record – everything has its place, and its very deliberate.”

“The drive has always been there to create new, exciting material that would speak to all of our fans, old and new,” guitarist and vocalist Bob Nanna adds. “We’re excited with how the record turned out and look forward to Braid’s busy future.”

No Coast, produced by Will Yip, is in stores and online via Topshelf Records on Tuesday, July 8. Stream the song over at Entertainment Weekly here.
