Brigade are Will (Vocals / Guitar), Fim (Drums), James (Guitar / Vocals) and Naoto (Bass). To most people, the band is known simply because of the family ties between frontman Will and Fightstar vocalist Charlie Simpson. They say "It's not emo, it's not indie, it's not pop. Brigade cannot be limited to genre pigeonholes". I met up with them before their gig at the Birmingham Bar Academy to find out more.
