OFF TOUR – IN STUDIO

We’ve been getting a lot of emails lately asking where we’ve disappeared to! After an expansive tour supporting “From The Horizon” both across the United States and Europe, we have happily taken a step back from the public eye and have been holed up in our home studios the last month writing song options for our NEW ALBUM that we’ll be releasing Spring 2018!

It’s important to us to honor the time we need to create quality thought provoking music, especially during times as trying as these. The music community is strengthening as the world seemingly continues to fall apart. This is the most important time in our lives as artists. We are not taking this responsibility lightly, and can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on soon!

Until then, power to the people, we’ll rock with you soon!

 

XO, The Broadcast

THE BROADCAST- BEAR CREEK FESTIVAL 2014

YES. A golden ticket arrived this morning. It’s no surprise that being a self represented band can cause the road to opportunity sometimes to seem extra long. No one is denying that having a stellar manager or booking agent can make a world of difference for a touring musician – BUT – if you can’t find your own personal Brian Epstein (The Beatles manager for those of you about to google it) , then you’ve got to act as your own boss.

Acting as your own boss can be a tricky thing. When you mess up or drop the ball your finger points at yourself. When you just can’t seem to get your foot in the door to certain venues and festivals, your finger points at yourself. The reality is though, there are a MILLION bands in America alone these days. To stand out you’ve got to stand the test of time. So a year ago I quit pointing my finger at myself and started pointing it on an angle to give it more of a disco effect – because that feels MORE FUN.

This year has been the year that feels like we are FINALLY starting to get on people’s radar – especially with festivals. Festivals for those of you wondering are like the cool kids party and if you’re a baby band just starting out, you better believe your name isn’t showing up on the guest list of the popular senior prom queen. Yep. I’m comparing festival booking agents to popular prom queens. They’re the Willy Wonka’s of the festival world, forever holding everyone’s golden ticket into some of the best parties this country has to offer.

Today, we got a really big golden ticket. One that I’ve been vying after for over three years. Ladies and gents, I’m stoked to announce that we have been invited to Bear Creek Festival 2014 in Spirit of the Suwannee, Live Oak FL. The line up is insane, the vibes are going to be through the roof, and we’re letting you know now because it’s worth planning your fall around!

Limited Signed Prints of Album Artwork Available!

One of the most exciting aspects of creating “Dodge the Arrow” was having the chance to work with an art director who really captured the essence of the album in a visual manner. Interestingly enough, we found Josh before we even scheduled recording time in Echo Mountain Studios. I happened upon Joshua Marc Levy + 423 Art & Design while enjoying one of my favorite galleries downtown ZaPow! (if you haven’t checked it out before, put it on your definite list of to do’s next time you’re in Asheville!). The day before I was lamenting to my band members that I had no idea how to go about locating an artist, so decided a little gallery hopping might spark my inspiration.

Low and behold, I waltzed into Zapow! to discover amazing psychedelic but modern prints including band posters of artists I adore, The Black Crows, Modest Mouse, AC/DC. Who IS this artist that absolutely MUST design The Broadcast’s next album?! Turns out not only is Josh a former Brooklynite like myself, he also relocated to Asheville around the time that we did from New York City, making us big apple transplants living it up in the mountains. Bam! Insta-connection.

After an awesome meeting with Josh and his equally inspired wife Amy, the ball got rolling and after a few back and forths, he presented us with the final design for “Dodge the Arrow” a piece of artwork that I continue to fall deeper and deeper in love with. He couldn’t have captured the essence of this album more perfectly. The synchronicity between the songs and the artwork are stunning and I am so proud of the results.

Being as in love with it as we are, we decided to have a limited number of prints made specially for the album release party this Friday at The Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC. You can’t really tell in the photo I’ve posted below, but Josh had them printed with a special sparkly silver ink. Each print is numbered and signed and will be available at the release party! If there are any copies left at the end, we will set up a link on the website for people to purchase the remaining prints!

New Studio Album: “Dodge the Arrow” Coming September 24, 2013

We’re thrilled to announce the completion of what we consider to be the first studio album from The Broadcast. While we formed in Brooklyn nearly 5 years ago, it wasn’t until we relocated to Asheville, NC replacing our bassist and guitarist and reworking our sound that we truly felt like a band. Nearly three years later we present to you: Dodge the Arrow. We recently had a private listening party at the Lexington Avenue Brewery in Asheville, NC for an eclectic group of artists, musicians, writers, and journalists and the response was overwhelming. We are incredibly proud of the results of Dodge the Arrow and can’t wait for you to experience it with us!

Be sure to join us September 27th at The Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC for the first official album release party with The Deluge and David Earl and The Plowshares joining us!

***THE FIRST 25 ONLINE ADVANCED SALES RECEIVE A FREE AUTOGRAPHED COPY OF THE ALBUM***
