New Series on YouTube + Knoxville & Charlotte Album Release!

We’re always trying to stay up to date and connected in the most direct ways possible with our fans- you guys are the reason we are able to continue doing what we’re doing! We’ve been getting a lot of emails lately with requests to get the know the band more and to see more updates so we’re slowly creating more channels on our YouTube account (kind of like a tv station) – as you can see over there we’ve already got The Broadcast Project- a series that follows us on the road, Talking Heads, a series that keeps you up to date with weekly happenings from The Broadcast, and now a brand new series called The Broadcast Cover Series, which as you can guess is members of the band cover songs by artists we’re inspired by. Our first installment is of Icelandic recording artist Asgeir- someone you should all get hip to as he’s certain to explode in the coming year!

This week we’ve got two album release parties that are close to our hearts- Knoxville, TN at Preservation Pub on Thursday October 24th and The Evening Muse in Charlotte, NC on Saturday October 26th! Be sure to check out the shows if you’re close to one of those cities – they’re going to be awesome shows and even better if you’re there with us to celebrate! 🙂

VA/TN/NC all in a weekend’s work…

We’re hitting the road again today for a string of shows coming up in celebration of our new album “Dodge the Arrow” which released on September 24th! You can check it out FO FREEEE at www.thebroadcast.bandcamp.com and if you dig it you can download it and rock out to it whenever you want! If however you want a physical copy of it (for now) you’ll have to come to a show. We’re working on the whole online store thing, but until we can get our act together, the shows are where the CDs are at!

If you haven’t heard then I’m convinced you have been living under a rock for the last two weeks because Asheville has been blowing up about our ALBUM RELEASE PARTY!  We’ll be posting some of the awesome reviews in our blog in the coming days- but crazy beautiful love to The Mountain Xpress, Bold Life Magazine, Ashvegas, The Laurel of Asheville, Visit Asheville, The Homegrown Music Network, WNCW Radio,  and The Asheville Citizen-Times for all of their press surrounding the show!

Doors are at 8pm with the show kicking off at 9pm with The Deluge from Winston-Salem followed by Asheville’s very own David Earl and the Plowshares! The Broadcast hits around 11pm!

 

Can’t wait to see you there!

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!

This Week on the Road!!!!

One of our favorite aspects of being in a band full time is the ability to travel across the country doing what we love- an added bonus is hitting up new markets after playing literally hundreds of shows the past three years. That being said, we’re hitting the road this week and playing a couple of spots we haven’t hit up yet!

 

Tuesday all you whitewater junkies can meet us over at the Nantahala Outdoor Center after your wild afternoon on the rapids. We’ll be rocking out on the deck from 4-7 at the end of your adventure so be sure to come hang with us and catch some tunes over a few beers.

Wednesday we’re rocking out for the first time in Macon, GA at The Hummingbird! Caitlin’s got some deep family roots in Macon so we’re stoked to check out the scene and meet the live music community that we’ve heard is brewing down there. It’s a FREE show from 10:30 – ??? so come party with us Macon!

Friday we’re super excited to play Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC for the first time with Toubab Krewe – two things on our bucket list that we’ll be able to check off and it will feel so good!

Saturday we make our return to Martin’s Downtown in Roanoke, VA- a Homegrown Music Network venue!

 

Boom! Come party with us!

Charleston Bound w/ Toubab Krewe Tomorrow!

 

Charleston Pour House Anniversary Party w/ Toubab Krewe!

 

We’re hitting the road tomorrow for three days of fun in the sun in Charleston, South Carolina!

Tomorrow we’re rocking out at Awendaw Green at 9pm…if you haven’t checked this place out yet, we highly recommend it. It reminds us of a mini-festival, multiple bands on the lineup, outdoors with beautiful weather, great vibes, food trucks, and a goat named Jukebox that eats your setlist if you keep it on the ground. You can find out more about the event and lineup here: AWENDAW GREEN

On Friday we’ll be celebrating Aaron’s birthday and also the 11th Anniversary of the Charleston Pour House with our friends Toubab Krewe! It’s going to be a rowdy good time that we’ve been looking forward to for awhile! Get your tickets here: 11TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY TICKETS
