Watch Brad Perform on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
Brad are back with their fifth studio album, ‘United We Stand,’ and to celebrate, the band is making the publicity rounds promoting its new music — including a performance at yesterday (May 3) on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
While their recorded output has been rather sporadic, Brad has remained a part of Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard’s musical focus for two decades, as he pointed out in a press release announcing ‘United We Stand.’ “After 20 years as a band, Brad’s brotherhood remains intact and vibrant. I couldn’t be more excited about our latest opus,” he enthused. “A year and a half in the making, ‘United We Stand’ is our combined and loving collaboration. We hit all the stops, down beat grooves, soaring vocals, and riffs galore. We’re in this bad boy for the long haul, people. So get ready.”
“The new record is a testament to a band in its 20th year, a band that started with three friends getting together one afternoon to jam,” added vocalist Shawn Smith. “This collection of songs feels really good to me. I expect nothing less.”
Prior to stopping by ‘Kimmel,’ Brad delivered an in-studio set at Seattle’s KEXP-FM, which you can stream in its entirety at this link. And click below to check out their ‘Kimmel’ performance — it’s about 37 minutes into the show — and let us know what you think of the band’s new material.
