Bril Debut
Fanscape reports: November 1st marks the US debut from sonic rockers, Bril, entitled, Airless Alarm on Kirtland Records. The twelve tracks were produced by the band alongside Justin Gray (Joss Stone) and were mixed by studio veteran Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam).

With over a decade of friendships and musical partnerships among them (and two of them brothers), Bril are a prolific songwriting team who feel the twelve tracks chosen for the album wholly represent the "Bril sound". From start to finish Airless Alarm contains a stunning blend of blistering, yet thoroughly tuneful sounds that draw upon the best of both the soul-searching found in American alternative music and the ever-expanding sonic landscapes of Brit-rock. 

Bril will be seeing plenty more of the road in support of Airless Alarm as they head out for shows in Houston, Austin (supporting Stellastarr) and a performance at the Dallas Music Festival. They will return west for performances in Phoenix, San Diego, hometown gigs in Orange County and carry on north for shows in San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and more.
