The Brevet announce Upholder: Chapter 3 EP

Official press release:

California based rock quintet The Brevet will be releasing Upholder: Chapter 3, the final chapter of the band’s American Novel EP series June 16, 2017. In preparation, The Brevet will be releasing a brand new music video for the title track, “Upholder”, and will be touring the west coast June 14 – June 28, with select dates being in support of Sister Hazel.

The Brevet’s ambitious American Novel EP series began in 2014 with the release of American Novel: Chapter 1, followed up by Embers: Chapter 2, released during the summer of 2016. Showcasing The Brevet at their catchiest and most mature, Upholder is filled with unique Americana tinged songs that are both moody and perfect for the summertime thanks to massive hooks that are laden throughout.

Upholder: Chapter 3 track listing:

1. “I Am The Wind”
2. “Wild Child”
3. “The River”
4. “Upholder”

On their upcoming west coast tour for Upholder: Chapter 3, The Brevet will be selling a special American Novel vinyl record containing all 3 EP’s in one package. When speaking of Upholder: Chapter 3 being the final installation of their American Novel EP’s, the band says:

“For us, it’s much more about our journey as a band and the evolution of us creating music together. So, the Chapters are just stitching together parts of our writing journey. It’s great for us to look back at these chapters and see how we’ve grown, changed, and continued in making music we believe in.”

In regards to Upholder‘s title track/video, the band explains:

“The song is meant to be a dialogue of people going through challenges and hard times. You don’t have to experience the exact same challenges in life to relate to one another. I think the song is meant to be a reminder that whatever you are going through in life you are not alone. The video was meant to focus more on the band and our live shows. We have grown so much over these past few years in our live performances and really wanted to showcase that in a creative way.”

Upholder: Chapter 3 will be released June 16 and the band’s video for “Upholder” will be released shortly. You can also catch The Brevet performing on-camera in a current commercial for Apple.
