As summer comes to a close, Broadside are delivering another slice of paradise, the Morrissey-inspired song and new music video ‘I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.’ The bittersweet track is the closer on their latest album Paradise, and furthers Broadside’s abiding pledge to fearlessly expand their voice as leaders of the pop-punk crusade. The video can be seen below.

Directed by front-man Ollie Baxxter, he explains, “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. Also, how fucking cute do ukulele’s sound?!” Guitarist Niles Gibbs adds, “We are not afraid to try new things and that is apparent with this song.”

Broadside expand their sound into unheard punk turf incorporating trumpet on the first video from the album, ‘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 all of our career, we aren’t afraid to try new things and that is apparent with “Paradise,” declares guitarist Niles Gregory.

In perfect timing for summer, Broadside have released their second full length, Paradise, an album filled with the Southern California-tinged pop punk fitting for the season.

Originally hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Broadside has relocated to Los Angeles and seems to have taken the environment to heart.  For Paradise, the band teamed up again with producer Kyle Black (New Found Glory, All Time Low), and has spent the last couple years since their debut, Old Bones (2015), relentlessly touring and gathering accolades.  From being named “Musician of the Month” in April 2017 by Alternative Press to being named “Best International Newcomer” by Rock Sound, to having Paradise being named as “One of 2017’s Most Anticipated albums” by AP and gathering fans at Warped Tour in 2016, the band has certainly demonstrated the appeal of their sound to audiences and critics alike.   The band traces their roots back to 2010 and released a 5 song ep in 2011 that was re-recorded and expanded in 2012 for an independent release before they recruited current lead vocalist Ollie Baxxter in 2013.  Add in some touring and then signing to Victory Records and the band released their debut album Old Bones in 2015 which was followed up by the aforementioned Warped Tour and acclaim.

With the release of Paradise a week away, Broadside has partnered with Substream Magazine to deliver the unique track ‘Laps Around A Picture Frame.’ For the first time ever, guitarist Dorian Cooke steps up to the mic to lend his harmonies on lead vocals, followed by front-man Ollie Baxxter attaching himself as the song addresses anxiety from two points of view.

“We wanted to capture two completely different humans having the exact same mental breakdown,” explains Cooke. “We wrote the music, lyrics, and arrangement around a panic attack in a crowded environment. Even the name is an exercise for panic attacks taught to me by a therapist. The persona I represent is of someone that’s on the higher end of the social spectrum – someone popular and beautiful on the outside, but has that constant struggle internally. On his role, Baxxter adds, “I portray a young female persona shaped by the harshness of her environment, which is a story shared with me by a close friend whenever she is in a public setting. I know it’s something much more common than people tend to show.” Continue reading »
