Broadside Unveil Details Behind Paradise

The wait is over! BROADSIDE will be releasing their second studio album, Paradise, returning to the music scene with a larger than life eagerness to inspire. Today, the band releases the first video and single, “Puzzle Pieces,” with longtime supporter Alternative Press, who nominated BROADSIDE as ‘Best Underground Band’ for this year’s AP Music Awards. Paradise will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally on June 16. Starting tonight, audiences will be treated to new cuts from Paradise as BROADSIDE hit the road with Real Friends, Have Mercy, Tiny Moving Parts and Nothing, Nowhere.

Head To Alternative Press And Watch “Puzzle Pieces.”

“We have been picking ourselves apart to really find the focus of what people will think when they hear the name BROADSIDE with this new record,” confides front-man Ollie Baxxter. On “Puzzle Pieces,” he continues, “As I’m getting older and the band progresses, we’re being put into situations where we have the opportunity to reach a wider audience. Do we take advantage of those opportunities or stay true to who we are and express our ideals? Eventually you must ask yourself, at what cost does this come? Do I edit myself or do I speak the harsh reality of the creative industry? Puzzle pieces – it takes one piece to either start or finish an entire piece of art.”

Since the release of 2015’s Old Bones, their Victory Records debut, Baxxter adds, “We bypassed our goals, made an explicit vision for our future, and are counting down the days until Paradise is released. We are locking in a sound and an image to represent our music, our absolutely loving fans, and the future audience of BROADSIDE.”

Now calling Los Angeles home, the former Virginia natives teamed up once again with New Found Glory and All Time Low producer Kyle Black in January 2017 to lay down the groundwork for Paradise. “You know what, Kyle Black is a wildman who knows what he is doing, and we were lucky to be able to record another record with him,” admits Baxxter.

Named ‘Musician Of The Month’ by Alternative Press in March 2017, guitarist Dorian Cooke’s resilient vocals take the lead on the soulful hymn “Laps Around A Picture Frame,” while “Tunnel Vision” will quickly land as live favorite with its skyscraping vocals. And Paradise doesn’t just have storming tracks, the lofty “Who Cares” beams with the bands inner personalities of turning a bad situation into quick-witted humor, while the balance between Baxxter and Cooke’s vocals on “Summer Stained” is damn near perfect. BROADSIDE expand their sound into unheard punk turf incorporating trumpet on the first single “Puzzle Pieces,” and the Morrissey-channeled, ukulele driven, “I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.”

“This record is the sound we have been trying to achieve our whole career, we aren’t afraid to try new things and that is apparent with Paradise,” declares guitarist Niles Gregory.

Following a week of enigmatic posts and buzz across social media, multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated Chicago band Fall Out Boy dropped a new song called “Young and Menace” today, which is available NOW on all digital service providers. The band also released the song’s music video – watch HERE. 

“Young and Menace” – written and produced by Fall Out Boy – is the first taste of new music off the band’s forthcoming seventh studio album
M A  N   I    A, out September 15, 2017 on Island Records/DCD2 Records. M A  N   I    A is available for pre-order now at https://falloutboy.lnk.to/mania.

“There’s a lyric in the song, ‘trying to send the world a message, I was young and a menace,’ that reminded me of growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. I didn’t look like anyone there or feel like anyone – I felt like an outsider in my own town. It wasn’t until I discovered punk rock and that community that I realized I did fit in somewhere in this world – with the other people who didn’t fit in,” says Fall Out Boy bassist & lyricist Pete Wentz of the reasoning behind the song’s title. “It’s hard to rationalize rage – it’s hard to quantify anxiety… this song does neither, it embraces the wave…”

Of the video, Wentz describes the protagonist’s journey to explore the world outside one she’s previously known. “The concept is the idea of a movie like Elf, where he realizes maybe he isn’t an elf after all, but ours has less comedic elements and more real world implication. She realizes that maybe she is human after all – but maybe the line between us and monsters is blurrier than we think…”

M A  N   I    A is the follow-up album to the band’s platinum-certified sixth studio album American Beauty/American Psycho, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 upon its January 2015 release. Hailing from Chicago, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy – Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums) – has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone and other prestigious publications. They have performed on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, America’s Got Talent, The Voice, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and many more.
