Rewind back to 2006. One of the bands that were especially making a name for themselves was Brigade, particularly after the release of their debut album, ‘Lights’, which resulted in the band getting a lot of airplay – most notably from the single, ‘Magneto’. The album was given impressive reviews by critics and fans alike, so much so that in 2007 it was voted into Rock Sound’s Top 10 Albums of 2006. However, for all the impression that Brigade had made, they lost to Bring Me The Horizon at the Kerrang! Awards in the Best British Newcomer category. Everyone knows how BMTH‘s status has risen through the years, so it would have been interesting had Brigade won the award. They may have developed like BMTH has rather than become a lesser, though still talented band, through the years since 2006, which unfortunately is what has happened to them.
