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.”

Broadside- Puzzle Pieces MP3/WAV

“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.

SUPERJOINT will be touring in support of their Caught Up In The Gears Of Application full-length. The record, which Loudwire crowned, “a raw exercise in riffing devastation and swirling, erratic tempo shifts,” is SUPERJOINT‘s first proper studio offering in over a decade. Recorded at the famed Nodferatu’s Lair, produced by SUPERJOINT co-founder Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem etc.) and Stephen Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.), and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sounds, the thirty-eight-minute bruiser spews forth an unapologetic crossover of hardcore punk, metal, and uncompromising, antagonistic, New Orleans-style angst.

Various order bundles, including limited edition vinyl options and authentic woodwork from their “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” video are available via Housecore at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, point your browser HERE where you can also stream the record in full.

 

SUPERJOINT was resurrected in 2015 after the original band broke up a decade earlier. At the behest of the late Corey Mitchell, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, SUPERJOINT founders Anselmo, Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), and Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al) joined forces with longtime comrades, drummer José “Blue” Gonzalez (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals), and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power). A new era of the band was born. After just two tours, new material followed culminating in the scathing sounds of Caught Up In The Gears Of Application.

 

 “[Philip H. Anselmo’s] tenacity seems undeniable, and that spirit shines through Caught Up In The Gears Of Application from beginning to end.” – Blabbermouth

Kenny Chesney’s Last Four in 2017

With a second Gillette Stadium show added and close to sold-out, the hunger for that live Kenny Chesney summer experience is pronounced. Though there’s a handful of festival plays on the calendar for this year, Chesney announces four more intimate shows to round out his 2017 live schedule: Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on Aug. 4 and The Wharf Amphitheatre in Orange Beach, Ala. on Aug. 5, followed by two nights at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. on Aug. 10 and 11. All shows this summer are presented by Blue Chair Bay Rum.

“As long as we’re rehearsing and I’ve got new music in the pipeline, I can’t imagine not playing a little bit,” says Chesney. “I know that it takes time off to create and make records… to write and find songs like ‘American Kids’ and ‘Noise,’ but that doesn’t mean I don’t miss the fans. There is nothing that feeds me more than hearing the sound of the No Shoes Nation singing these songs, seeing those faces and knowing this is gonna be one of those nights.”

Having closed 2016’s Spread the Love Tour with 121,399 cheering New Englanders at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., along with hitting the half-million mark at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey’s Meadowlands, Chesney had one of his biggest touring years – despite playing fewer dates than he has in previous years. As he says of those shows, “I can still hear the crowds when I close my eyes at night. Just when I think it can’t get any bigger or louder, the No Shoes Nation comes at me with these songs, singing and cheering and showing me how much life we can live in three minutes.”

With “Bar at the End of the World” cresting the Top 10 in the wake of the GRAMMY-nominated two week No. 1 “Setting the World on Fire” with P!nk, Cosmic Hallelujah is continuing Chesney’s intent to sing songs that capture the lives, loves, triumphs and escapes of his fans. Raised in a small town in East Tennessee, his songs have become the soundtrack of coming of age across America. NPR praised Cosmic Hallelujah for encompassing “folk’s storytelling, soul’s honesty and gospel’s spirit,” while Newsday deemed it “country perfection” and the Boston Globe wrote, “A country artist, he’s working a wider sonic palette, that incorporates ideas from the stadium-rockers with whom he shares dressing rooms and the rollicking Nashville bars that still loom large in country music’s imagination. Bringing the two ideas together results in the album’s best songs.”

While 2017’s shows are limited, Chesney will bring everything he’s got to these dates. For fans of the 8-time Entertainer of the Year’s high-energy concerts, Alabama and Connecticut are the places to be in August for two outdoor amphitheater and two indoor arena shows, respectively.

“We’re gonna bring a whole year’s worth of energy,” Chesney promises. “So if you’re coming, you better be ready for it, because this is our chance in 2017 to rock.”

General tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, April 14 starting at 10 a.m. local time. More information: here.
