Broadheds Self-Titled Album & 64-Page Book In Stores April 9th

We’re thrilled to announce that Broadheds‘ self-titled debut album will be released on April 9th on Dangerbird Records.

Clocking in at just under 30 minutes, Broadheds is short, fast, and loud! Its 13-songs were written by Peter Walker (Eulogies) and recorded in an East L.A. studio with friends and acclaimed musicians Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck, Nine Inch Nails), Denny Weston Jr (The Kooks), and James King (Fitz and The Tantrums).

Broadheds were joined in the studio by visual artist Mark Todd, who not only created the album artwork (and accompanying 64-page book), but also provided an evolving visual landscape during the recording process – all of which was captured on film.

Enter your email address below for a free MP3 download of “Nothing That I Care About” from the upcoming album.
