Broadside Release Music Video For “I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.”

Broadside are currently on tour in the UK supporting Trash Boat but the guys just released a super cute video for their ukulele centered song “I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.” from their latest album “Paradise.”

Frontman Ollie Baxxter directed the beachfront video and also shows that he’s a total romantic! When asked about the song, Ollie explained “This is a song for romantics. When you’re in love, you feel consumed in its warmth. I’m happy knowing that I’ve contributed to a very long list of love songs.”

Watch the video for “I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.”  below!

Head To “Paradise” With Broadside

Broadside just released a brand new video for their latest high energy single “Paradise” and urge listeners to “Chase your paradise and value your time” in the title track to their sophomore effort due out June 16th.  The video perfectly encapsulates the band’s fun loving personalities in a beach-y inflatable filled video that takes a peek into their fans’ version of paradise.  Polaroids filter in and out throughout the video and are filled with beach scenes, mountain climbs, and family photos sent in by Broadside fans.  Taking their own advice, the band chased their own paradise by relocating to Los Angeles!

It’s clear these guys care about their fans and treat them as equals, not just fans.  Front-man Ollie Baxxter says “Life is a journey, and it should be documented and valued forever, so we wanted to give our fans an opportunity to share their version of paradise with us, and share their special moments in our music video. Thank you to everyone for letting us take a peek at your paradise.”

Album Preview: For The Win “Heavy Thoughts” Out April 14th

San Diego’s own heavy pop punk band For The Win are set to release their most honest album yet this April.  “Heavy Thoughts” is due out April 14th on Artery Recordings and features the band’s most personal lyrics to date blended seamlessly with high energy instruments and vocal harmonies.  We got an early listen of the band’s new album and there’s no sign of a sophomore slump with For The Win!

The album kicks off with a declaration “This is a song for the beaten and broken,” and quickly shifts gears with guitars chugging alongside a steady drum beat on “Us Versus Them.”  Singer Kyle Christensen promises the listener doesn’t have to walk this world alone, which is the overarching message of this album.   Almost every song speaks from the heart about some of those thoughts that sit in the back of your mind all the time.  The first two singles from the album, “Crash And Burn” and “Dancing Shoes” show the dynamic writing both lyrically and musically from the band.

For The Win found the ideal balance between light pop sing along choruses and heavy breakdowns that we’re sure will get the crowd moving during their live shows.  There are a few stand out tracks on this album, “Nowhere To Run” and “How Can I (Get Back To You)” are two of them.  These are two of the more pop hook laden tracks on the album, but lyrically they have the right amount of weight to hold their own against the other tracks on a truly solid sophomore album.

For The Win showcase their softer side as well on the album with the closing track “Until The End Of Time.”   The final track starts as a slow acoustic jam questioning “Do I sit around and wait for change or move ahead to better days without you” and later moves towards a more bitter tone as the drums and a string section fade in.

All in all, these guys are proving that the next generation of melodic hardcore and pop punk are in very good hands. This is an album that not only passed the “driving test” (you know, the one where you plug in the aux cord and just drive aimlessly around town while blasting the album) but it also gets us excited for what’s next from For The Win!

Be sure to grab a copy of “Heavy Thoughts” when it drops April 14th on iTunes, Amazon, and through the band’s official webstore.  Pre-order bundles are available and feature exclusive merch and more!

For The Win To Release “Heavy Thoughts” Album on 4/14

For The Win have been keeping busy in 2017 so far and they’re ready to kick it into high gear!  The guys just announced that they will be releasing their brand new album, “Heavy Thoughts” through Artery Recordings on April 14th.  The band’s second single off of their highly anticipated second album, “Dancing Shoes” comes out of the gate at a blistering pace and hits the listener a little harder than the last single, “Crash and Burn.”

Kyle Christensen says “‘Dancing Shoes’ is the heaviest song we’ve written as a band so far, instrumentally and lyrically. This song reflects a lot on how cutthroat the world can be, and how so many people are out for themselves. I felt like I was losing touch with my own self confidence and let too many opinions get to me and my drive. As you grow older you realize how naive you can be to others and their ulterior motives.”

Watch the official video for “Dancing Shoes” below.

For The Win are the special guest on Alesana’s “Ten Frail Years Of Vanity and Wax” Tour this Winter.  Check out the dates below!
