Brave Citizens Announce December West Coast Tour

California's BRAVE CITIZENS have had a year of non-stop action in 2008—consistent touring, critical acclaim, and the release of the Deluxe Edition of REVOLUTIONS this fall—that has combined to fuel countless successes for a band that just one year ago was quietly releasing their digital debut to the world. To celebrate, the boys of BRAVE CITIZENS have tacked on an additional run of dates for December where they'll be joined by Portland indie-rock outfit Brightwood. The 10-day stretch launches December 12 in Sacramento, California.

By melding ethereal vintage with modern flair, BRAVE CITIZENS presented Revolutions as a rock album at its core. But what lies within—bold grandeur, big ambience, and melody-soaked pop power—is the display of the band's ability to transcend a simple genre tag or style affiliation and root each listener in its complete emotionality.

When the digital album hit the internet last winter, the blogosphere chatter began to demand the band's live presence. Ever since, BRAVE CITIZENS' constant motion has led to a string of dates on the 2008 Vans Warped Tour, a co-headline stint on The Daily Chorus Tour and captivating shows at clubs and universities throughout the west coast all year long.

Meanwhile, influential music outlets including Myspace.com, AOL Music, Alternative Press Magazine, FUSE TV and Purevolume.com have started taking note, while songs from Revolutions are beginning to spin at radio in Los Angeles and land in television shows across a number of networks.

On December 12, BRAVE CITIZENS will launch their final trek of 2008 with a 10-day tour alongside friends Brightwood. These shows advance BRAVE CITIZENS' forthcoming nationwide tour, set to launch in January 2009 (an official announcement is expected next month.)  The December dates will extend from the west coast into the northwest and include stops in Reno, Santa Rosa, Portland, Seattle and Salem, among others.
