Punk Brass Ensemble What Cheer? Brigade Act Global on ‘Iahabibi’
The beauty of What Cheer? Brigade is that they truly do not give a fuck. The brass ensemble will play anywhere they can, amassing crowds of dancing, exuberant fans. They play in the crowd, outside, you name it — every show becomes a huge party in the blink of an eye. Oh, and the music is sweet, too.
The band is set to release their new record, You Can't See Inside of Me, June 16 on Don Giovanni, and today they're premiering their new jam, "Iahabibi." The 20-piece band's music is multicultural, incorporating the sounds of brass bands from all walks of life, but what's most impressive is how the flavors of all their individual parts work together in total harmony.
Hear "Iahabibi" below, check out some tour dates and pre-order the record from Don Giovanni Records.
