Below is our complete Braveyoung news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Following an initial CD release in September 2011, amidst several regional tours together, "Nothing Passes" -- the collaborative release between apocalyptic noise/doom duo The Body and orchestral rock harbingers Braveyoung -- will now get the deluxe vinyl treatment.
Recorded in a collaborative session at Providence's Machines With Magnets (Battles, Daughters, Lightning Bolt, Chinese Stars), "Nothing Passes" is a layered but cohesive voyage through cavernous, noise-laden tumult and chaos, ethereal horror-soundtrack creepouts and even serene acoustic passages, exploring new styles for both acts. The album features vocal contributions from members of The Assembly Of Light Choir who have collaborated live with The Body and Braveyoung, as well as a cover of Exuma's song, "The Vision."
Set for release via At A Loss Recordings, the label responsible for releasing the initial CD version, the LP version of "Nothing Passes" will be available to the public on April 24th. The black vinyl pressing is housed in a high-quality chipboard cover with an uncoated heavyweight insert. A photo of the package can be found here. Pre-orders are now available here.
Additionally, The Assembly Of Light Choir -- who appear on "Nothing Passes," in addition to playing a major role in The Body's 2010-released "All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood" LP -- is preparing to release a new album this May. The ensemble has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project here.
Following a myriad of regional touring together, as well as their recently released fully collaborative full-length "Nothing Passes," apocalyptic doom duo The Body and orchestral/drone rock outfit Braveyoung have just confirmed another stint of shows together.
The new tour will tangle with eight East Coast cities in early February, which will see both acts performing individual sets, in addition to an additional collaborative set with both bands simultaneously performing material from the "Nothing Passes" album on several of the dates.

At A Loss Recordings has confirmed a collaborative full-length release between Rhode Island’s apocalyptic noise/doom duo The Body and North Carolina’s orchestral/drone rock harbingers Braveyoung.
With both bands having already performed live together multiple times, including a mini-tour earlier this year where the members of both The Body and Braveyoung performed collaborative material live in several cities of the tour, the time came for the bands to unite their sonic crafts together on tape.

North Carolina's GIANT has announced that they intend to move forward under the moniker BRAVEYOUNG. The band comments:
"To avoid inevitable legal repercussions, we have decided to stop using the name Giant. Braveyoung will be the name we now collectively function under. Nothing is changing, we are still the same band, but this has been a long time coming, and we are finally confident enough to go forward with it. It's only a name."
2009 promises to be a big year for the band, who will soon be releasing a 10-inch entitled "Bloom." Later in the year, the band will release a full-length followup to their 2005 debut, "Song." Details surrounding both releases are forthcoming.
“Braveyoung, like Giant, is only a moniker,” explains Zachary. “If we could, we would call ourselves ‘Zachary Isaac Ben Derrick Kyle,’ but I suppose it doesn’t work that way.”
As for the immediate future, BRAVEYOUNG has a two-week tour with Advent and Torch Runner coming up in early February and shortly following that will come an announcement concerning a full US with Tides.
“We just like to play,” confesses Zachary, “and don’t really think about much else. As with any other form of expression, it is and will continue to be a constantly growing and evolving process. If it wasn’t, there’d be no point in us continuing on.”
