New Album Details, New Video and Digital Single Released From Broadside By Rowan Butler

In anticipation of the release of their sophomore album, Paradise, Broadside has released the first video off the album for their single “Puzzle Pieces.” Alternative Press nominated Broadside for ‘Best Underground Band’ for 2017’s AP Music Awards, and the band is certainly worthy of the nomination (vote for them to win here). 

Paradise will be released in full on June 16th in vinyl, CD, and digital version, but here’s some good news to hold fans over until then: Broadside is going on tour starting April 27th, with Real Friends, Have Mercy, Tiny Moving Parts and Nothing, Nowhere.

Of the new single, “Puzzle Pieces,” Broadside front-man Ollie Baxxter says, “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.” 

That strong statement also fits pretty well with the theme of the Paradise album as a whole. Broadside worked with bands like New Found Glory and All Time Low to build Paradise, and they are extremely proud of the album, saying that it’s “the sound we have been trying to achieve our whole career.” 

Until the album drops (preorder it now), you can listen to “Puzzle Pieces” on repeat, and get your tickets for the nearest stop on the tour. Keep up with Broadside on social media for more announcements.
