Broadside Release Two New Singles, “King Of Nothing” & “Empty”

Broadside have been awfully quiet lately but that just means they’re putting in the work behind the scenes on new music.  The guys have been teasing two new singles for several weeks and now fans can finally listen to tracks on Spotify as well as pre-order a copy of the exclusive, limited edition colored 7″ vinyls.  Singer Oliver Baxxter broke down the inspiration for the two tracks, “King Of Nothing” and “Empty,” and we can’t be more excited to hear what they’ve been working on!

“King Of Nothing” focuses on the post show feelings, which can be totally opposite to what fans feel.  “This is a song about wanting to be the best,” states Baxxter. “We chose this life as touring musicians but it can be painfully lonely. We all want to be heard and play to massive crowds while making enough money that our parents won’t worry about our futures. I’m so proud of our accomplishments as a band but some nights, after the show ends and those crowds leave the venue, when you’re in the back seat of a dark van, you feel like you’re not doing enough and those dreams you have become nightmares of what you’ll never achieve. You can be on top of the world and have nothing.”

Broadside continue to prove themselves as the new kings of heavy lyrics paired with bouncy pop melodies and they showcase that on “Empty.”  When asked about the new track, Baxxter playfully admits,  “I was going through a real out of body misery when writing this song. The duality of a being a broken-hearted romantic splits a person. On one hand, you’ve been wronged, you should run and never look back. On the other, the rewarding time spent and memories made keep you trapped in the worrisome ‘what if this person leaves’ psychosis. I wanted to write a dance-y song making fun of how unfortunate it is to be in love, sometimes.”

Listen to the new tracks on Spotify below!

Be sure to catch Broadside on tour with Set It Off across North America kicking off on June 11th. Check out all of the dates here!

Pre-orders for brand new Broadside merch including long sleeves, baseball tees, and flags, as well as the exclusive, colored 7″ vinyls are available now!

Show Review: The Faim Electrify NYC

Australia is on a hot streak with exports and their latest, The Faim, are bringing their brand of pop rock with a side of on stage charisma that could fill an arena.  We caught them at the Gramercy Theatre on their tour opening for Andy Black, which wraps up this week in Virginia Beach.

Armed with an arsenal of new music and enough energy to power Manhattan, The Faim are here and they will not be ignored.  Frontman Josh Raven commanded the stage with swagger and poise, drawing the crowd in from the start, even walking off the stage and connecting directly with the crowd in the middle of the pit.

The Faim, singer Josh, guitarist Sam Tye, bassist/keyboardist Stephen Beerkens, and drummer Linden Marissen felt more like the headliner than an opener but we bet they’ll be in that headliner slot sooner rather than later.

They will be back in Australia and Europe over the Summer.  Check out all of their upcoming tour dates here!   We’re hoping to see them back in the States soon!

James Maslow Drops Lyric Video For New Single, “Love U Sober”

Former BTR member, current heartthrob, James Maslow is hitting the ground running this Spring with a BELLA Magazine cover and a brand new single called “Love U Sober.”  The new track is an upbeat, euphoric track about James’ life and past relationships and his struggle with differentiating between love and lust.

When asked about what the new music, James said, “A large portion of the music I’m going to put out is influenced by my past relationships. ‘Love U Sober’ acknowledges the fact that I was in a relationship with someone and we had so much fun, but after many months, I began to question it. The sad part was the connection wasn’t as real as I thought; it was masked by the emotion of partying. Saying I want to love you sober might be more literal than people realize.”

James is also the cover star of BELLA Magazine’s latest issue which is now available in Barnes&Noble nationwide. The cover story features an indepth tell-all about his new music, inspirations, and what fans can expect from him in 2019. He just wrapped filming on “Wolfhound,” a WWII action film, as well as “My Boyfriend’s Meds” starring alongside Jaime Camil, Sandra Echeverria, Jason Alexander and Brooke Shields, slated for release August, 30th, 2019.

Album Preview: Telltale – “Timeless Youth”

Richmond, VA is proving itself to be a breeding ground for pop punk standing toe to toe with NY/NJ, Florida, and SoCal areas.  Telltale are releasing their second EP, “Timeless Youth” on Friday, April 26th through SharpTone Records.

Telltale’s sophomore EP draws inspiration from the likes of New Found Glory, Broadside, Neck Deep, and Blink-182 capturing the youthful angst of growing up in a small town and desperately wanting to leave.

“What We Life For” is packed with catchy riffs and a danceable bridge that will have you speeding down the freeway with the windows down all Summer long.  Followed up by “Letting Go,” Telltale introduce sachrine elements of country storytelling and cadance into their reportoire with an arena sized sound.

When asked about the record, singer John Carter said, “Growing into your late teens and early twenties, you lose a lot of friends in more ways than one. You take blame for mistakes that aren’t yours and you forget what it’s like to know the freedom of naivety. ‘Timeless Youth’ is about retaining a sense of wanderlust, even when you feel confined to a certain path.”

Telltale hit a comfortable stride with self depreciating, scream-along choruses in “Dazy” and “Rose” while closing the album with a slower introspective track, “Hereditary” that picks up and releases all of the built up tension and emotion in one fell swoop.

Telltale haven’t been around as long as some of their peers but they can teach them all a thing or two about catchy hooks and a live show that’s a force to be reckoned with.

Artist To Watch: RØYLS

The new era of boybands are rolling in with infectious tunes galore! Adding their name into the mix are RØYLS, the brainchild of Sean Kileen (Over Atlantic), Liam Ross (Over Atlantic), and Drew Dirksen (The Tide) who are no strangers to the industry. Hailing from across the gobe, Sean is from the UK, Liam is from Washington, and Drew is from Ohio, RØYLS met in LA in the Fall of 2018 and instantly clicked as songwriters.

Their debut single, “Savages,” co-written by the legendary songwriter/producer, John Feldmann (5SOS, Good Charlotte, Blink-182, and more) is just a glimpse of what the guys have been working on.  “We feel passionate about the music we’re creating and the sound we’ve been developing the past months. It’s been exciting how natural & authentic the songs have been coming out and how great it’s been writing them together.  We’re stoked to get the out into the world.”
