Album Preview: Broadside’s “Paradise”- Due Out June 16th

Broadside’s sophomore album “Paradise” is being heralded as the ultimate Summer album and rightfully so!  Every track is filled with sunny riffs and soaring vocals urging the listener to chase their dreams and really embrace the good and bad things in their lives.   From the stark contrast between the upbeat music and the dark introspective lyrics, Broadside are balancing the two polar opposites in perfect harmony.

Singer Oliver Baxxter’s lyrics will hit close to home for many, frequently speaking out about anxiety on “Laps Around A Picture Frame,” online culture and feeling alone on “Summer Stained,” and self sabotaging thoughts on the sunny “Who Cares?” However, the best song on the album comes at the very end in the form of the island infused “I Love You, I Love You, It’s Disgusting.”  The ukulele driven love song is sure to be a favorite purely for its simple honesty.

When we sat down with Broadside just before the album release, Ollie spoke about his favorite song on the record, “Summer Stained.” “It’s about post-Warped Tour depression which I think will register well with people. And it’s half acoustic which is new for us.”  The song as a whole is a painful reminder that nothing good can stay like Warped Tour, which only lasts for the Summer.  The song can mean something different to every person who listens to it.

High points of the album include “Tunnel Vision,” charging full force about fitting in with your peers, and “Disconnect,” which tackles the attachment we have with social media “likes” that ultimately mean nothing.  Ollie asks “When’s the last time you felt alive?” begging the listener to disconnect, unplug your mind, and seize the day.  “Miss Imperius” might be our favorite track on the album solely due to it’s bouncy drum and bass lines in the verses and the ripping guitar solo!

Broadside have crafted the most sonically diverse and deeply pop infused record of their career so far and we can’t wait to see what’s in store because there’s no where to go but up from here! “Paradise” is due out June 16th through Victory Records.

Watch our interview with Broadside and get to know the guys a little better!

Pre-order “Paradise” on iTunes or Amazon now.  Pre-order bundles are still available through the band’s official website and include exclusive merch items like “Paradise” themed sunglasses and enamel pins.

Ryan Harrison & Michael Venus Win Roland Garros Doubles
2017 has been quite a turnaround for Ryan Harrison, who admitted he had been on the brink of quitting tennis altogether just a few months ago.  He won his first ATP World Tour singles title earlier this year in Memphis and made it back into the top 50. Harrison teamed up with his close friend and best man Michael Venus for doubles at Roland Garros, making it all the way to the finals.  They faced off against fellow American Donald Young & Santiago Gonzalez for the title, winning 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-3.  Now Ryan can add grand slam champion to his list of accomplishments this year!

GRAND. SLAM. TITLE.

Grass Season Is Here!
The tennis world moves from clay to much quicker grass courts this week, with tournaments in Germany and the Netherlands.  Roger Federer is also back in action this week in Stuttgart, after skipping the entire clay court season.  The grass court season is by far the shortest on the tennis calendar – Wimbledon qualifying starts in just 2 weeks!
