Viva Brother are an English Britpop band from Slough. Previously known as Brother, they were signed to Geffen Records in October and EMI Publishing in November 2010. Their debut album, Famous First Words, was released on August 1, 2011, and reached #34 on the UK Albums Chart.
Previously known as Kill the Arcade and Wolf Am I, the band was renamed Brother in 2010. The previous incarnation of the group wrote, recorded and performed music primarily in the pop-punk emo genre. Describing their latest sound as Gritpop, and citing bands such as Blur, The Stone Roses, and The Smiths as influences, the band began playing shows around the London area.
In June 2011, the band was forced to change their name from Brother to Viva Brother due to a lawsuit brought by another band, also called Brother.
