Broadside is a pop-rock band originating from Richmond, Virginia. They seamlessly traverse through serious and deep topics in the format of highly energetic, catchy upbeat songs. The band released their single, 'Bang,' on August 9th, 2023 in collaboration with fellow vocalist Joshua Roberts from Magnolia Park. We had the pleasure to talk to them about their evolution as a band, their latest singles, their creative process, and much more.
Iceis: I thought we would start off with a little bit of a fun game, so I thought we would play a game of who's most likely to. I'll give you some scenarios, and out of the three of you, just tell me who's most likely to do that thing. The first one is, out of the three of you, who’s most likely to bring back the most useless souvenir from your tour?
Domenic: It's hard to say. They buy a lot of stuff.
Pat: We love souvenirs.
Domenic: If we're going off of our last tour, which was in Japan, [Pat] bought a bunch of clothing that ended up not even fitting, so I’d have to say that has to go to Pat.
Pat: What made it even worse was that they were gifts for people, so it didn't even fit them.
Iceis: That’s worse. It’s like, “Here, I bought you a gift, but it doesn’t fit.”
Pat: “And also, I can’t return it. So, have fun.”
Iceis: What do you usually buy on tour, Oliver?
Oliver: I spend my money on a lot of treats and snacks. If there's any type of snack, I will spend my last dollar on it. I also have a problem with buying the same black [t-shirts] with minimal white [designs] on [them]. It’s a problem that I can't escape, even in my thirties.
Iceis: Going to Japan, I bet you bought a lot of stuff from that tour especially.
Oliver: Oh yeah, I even had to throw away some of my clothes that I brought just so I could bring more stuff.
Iceis: The next one is, who's most likely to do a random spur-of-the-moment extreme switch-up of their entire wardrobe?
Domenic: [Oliver has] had two styles in the ten years that I've known [him]. [He] started with joggers, white [shirts], and roaches. And now, [he dresses in] very classic [t-shirts,] jeans, [and] vans.
Domenic: Not boring, but it's classic.
Pat: It’s me again.
Domenic: [Pat dyes his] hair [almost] every other day and [gets his] hair cut twice a week.
Pat: So yeah, I guess it's me. I guess it's part of the crisis I'm going through trying to reinvent myself.
Iceis: What hair color are you gonna go for next?
Pat: I don't know. I have a little orange streak in it right now. I might keep that for a while so I don't damage it too much. My fiancée’s a hairstylist.
Iceis: Well, that helps.
Pat: Yeah, a lot of [it is] readily available for me, but I'll probably just keep the orange for now.
Iceis: That's always helpful because bleaching your hair if you do it quite a bit, can be quite difficult.
Pat: Oh yeah, I've already had to start over [with] my hair. And, of course, that was right in time for our headliner. So, I had to go on the headliner with the shortest haircut of my life.
Iceis: The next one we have is, who's most likely to pick up a new random hobby?
Oliver: I'd say [Domenic] or I.
Domenic: Oh yeah, [I was] super into [woodworking] for two months. [And Oliver] with [his] plants.
Oliver: We like a new challenge. Dom and I like to find something new and then dive in until it's either boring or it's like, “Alright, I can't progress any further.”
Domenic: Or, “I can't do this anymore. I’m actually not able to. I spent a lot of money to get the things that I thought I needed; [it] turns out [I’m] still bad at it.”
Pat: “Don't know how to use it.”
Iceis: Are there any hobbies you picked up recently that you stuck with?
Oliver: I've been working a lot with concrete and concrete planters. I really enjoy that process ‘cause I have to wait for it to dry. I like concrete because it allows me to work and then have a big break in the middle and then go back to it. I like that it forces me to think about it the next day and the next day.
Iceis: It keeps you coming back to it.
Iceis: And our last one is, who's most likely to come up with either the lamest or funniest joke?
Domenic: Ollie will chase a laugh, even if it means him running into a burning building. He is one of the funniest people I know, but sometimes, not everything is a winner. We went on a hike yesterday, and he was doing funny voices the whole time, and most of them were great, and then some of them [he] stopped, [and was] like, “I lost it.” [He] just couldn't figure it out.
Oliver: “Yeah, that character didn’t make any sense.”
Iceis: You guys have been a band for about a decade now. More or less. How did you all get acquainted? And what did the formation process of what we know as modern-day Broadside look like?
Oliver: So, years ago, when we were still more [of a] DIY [band], we were in 2 separate bands. They were in a band called Old Again, and I was in Broadside. Our bands had toured together. We met each other, and we got along enough to where we were like, “We should do this again in the future.” And then both of our bands put out a [CD] on the same day. And then, we toured again. In that process, Broadside’s van ended up breaking down. I ended up getting in the van with Old Again. We got a kinship, and the bond really started to formulate. And then, throughout the years, our bands went separate ways. They got signed. This [and] that [happened]. And then time progressed, and members of Broadside started to leave, and by that point, Old Again had dissolved. So, I was just stealing members of Old Again until, eventually, I got them. And now, we've become like [a] supergroup. We've known each other for [about] ten years now. [We’ve] been touring together separately, but also not separately for that time. I would say, this is it. This is the whole band. We're very big on [finding] somebody that you can trust and love, and just hold on [to them].
Iceis: Yeah, it's always nice when you can work with people that you know you enjoy being with versus trying to find somebody totally new to fill a spot. It's always much more desirable to work with someone you know the connection is already there with.
Domenic: Well, to that point, we currently don't have a permanent drummer in the band. It was kind of a challenge to find someone that we could hire to come and drum for us on tour. We only like working with people that we know because we have taken risks [by] taking people that we did not know out on tour to do various jobs in the past. And sometimes, people have stolen from us, the vibes have just been off, they ended up being really mean, or we just didn't get along. So now, it's really important to us that whoever we're bringing out [on tour] with us, we are already friends [with them]. So, to that point, we [are] currently flying our friend Tay from Canada to play drums for us on all of our tours, just because we like him so much. We trust him. He's a great drummer, but it is kind of funny that we're flying someone from a different country just to play drums.
Iceis: The connection between the four of you when you’re on tour is important because if that connection’s not there, the band, the shows, and the tour disintegrate on themselves. That can lead to a lot of problems.
Domenic: Yeah, a hundred percent.
Iceis: You guys have put out a few albums at this point. I feel like they're all so different sounding from each other, especially ‘Paradise’ and ‘Into the Raging Sea.’ And even with the singles that you've released over the last year. What do you feel is a key identifiable element every Broadside album has?
Oliver: A good chorus.
Iceis: True, very true.
Oliver: I really like approaching lyrics and lyricism as a storytelling method. So, I really like for a song to have a beginning, a middle, and [an] end. If you listen to any Broadside song, there's a wrap-up, or there's an actual feeling trying to be conveyed. There is no “What is that about?” Type of feeling. I like metaphors, and RT approaches to stuff. I'm never writing bizarre things that don't have a wrap-up or some sort of conclusion. [I] try [not] to at least. I shouldn't pat myself on the back that much, but I try to put a period in my sentences. So, I feel like that's gotta be a consistent [element], at least, in the way that I write with lyrics. I like to create little blips of moments in songs, and then the music behind it just elevates that whole experience.
Iceis: Yeah, even with your latest single, “Bang,” you can tell the first verse has its own story, the chorus is its own thing, and your second verse has its own story as well, which is nice ‘cause then there's no confusion.
Oliver: Yeah., that's what's nice. A lot of times, if you just listen to a song, on the first listen, a word or something catches [your attention]. It could even be [the] tone of an instrument, but what I really like about the lyrics and “Bang,” particularly the first verse, is [it’s] focused around listening to the character’s [father’s] advice, or whatever you would deem that. And then, the second verse [has] the trigger word being, “My mama showed me how to lose a fight.” So, it really creates this “Wait, what did he say?” [Moment,] and makes you want to go back and be like, “Oh, I can relate to that.” Or, “I can't relate to that.” Those are two different verses in the song saying you’re a momma's boy. You’re [a] daddy's boy, [or] whatever the vibe is. That'll stick out to you in a whole unique way. I don't even have a dad, and I'm singing about one. So, I think that it's awesome that I was able to create that little moment. A lot of people have come up to me and been like, “Oh, that really stuck out to me because I should have listened to my dad's advice.” So, it's amazing. People create their [storylines]. You can create the story, and they'll take away from it [their own story], which I love. I find that interesting.
Iceis: Oh, yeah, music is always so subjective anyway. I feel like if you put a hundred people in a room, each one will tell you a different impression they have of a song that they recently listened to, which I think is the beauty of it.
Iceis: All of your songs have a very deep sense of honesty and a raw, relatable tone about them. What impression or message do you want people to leave with after they hear your music for the first time?
Oliver: I really [want] people [to] approach the band and leave with the idea that we want to sonically sound like a structured band, but we're trying to accomplish our own dreams within that. So, there is no real message outside of perseverance, trusting your gut, and trying something. That's the whole message about Broadside. We're not close to where we want to be, but we still get blessed with [opportunities] to talk to people like you, do Interviews, go on tour, [and] etc. There is no end goal with this. There is just a goal. Whether it's self-expression, making enough money to pay rent one time, or any of those individual goals, ultimately, you gotta keep going. You gotta keep one foot in front of the other, whether that's out of your own head, out of your own wallet, or into something that terrifies you. I think Broadside is just a representation of it's okay to switch up the sound. It's okay to change members. It's okay to hurt. It's okay to win as long as you keep trying something.
Iceis: That’s actually very beautiful. I love that overall goal you guys have with that. I feel like with each album, there is that persistent theme about them.
Iceis: You guys have evolved as a band over the last ten years. What elements within your creative process, or just within yourself, do you think have evolved and led to the stuff you're creating now?
Oliver: As a vocalist and as a lyricist, I've really learned how to put my ego aside as an artist because I've worked with so many different types of writers now. [Even] working within this band [now, there’s] a whole new method to it. So, [it has] allowed me to remind myself that, first and foremost, that I'm not always gonna have the correct or right way [of making something]. To me, you never finish art. You just walk away from it. You just say, “It's done.” You can always edit, [and] you can always change something. As the artist, you'll always find something you could have, should have, fixed. Even if it's permanent, like a tattoo, you'll always look at it and be like, “I could have changed something.” So, [putting] my ego aside [has allowed me to] go, “Just because ‘Coffee Talk’ [is] a good song, [it doesn’t mean I have to write everything like ‘Coffee Talk].” [It] worked for me when I was younger, [it] allowed me to appreciate songwriting. So now, when I approach working with new people. Even [within] my band, [which] I do trust, because of the sheer amount of people I've worked with, It's allowed me to go. “Ego isn't everything. Something good can come out of this.” And [it] has. We've written songs that have happened [instantly], and we've also written songs where we banged our heads against the wall [to create them]. So, I've learned personally that there is no right way to get there, but you can get there.
Domenic: When I joined the band, there [were already] two great records [created], and they were perfectly written. Everything was good [regarding them], but when we were going to write ‘Into the Raging Sea,’ and even this next [upcoming] record, we all sat down and really tried to figure out what kind of music, as grown men, we like. Because those first two records were written by a different group of people, for the most part, and a younger group of people, we're all in our thirties now, and as much as we still like those [older] songs and appreciate them and the ride that they've taken this band on, it felt a little [disingenuous] to try and write another record that sounded like we were twenty-three. We're not trying to write music for a specific age group. We're trying to write music that, first and foremost, we like and are proud of. We just hope that it finds an audience [with people who], despite [what their] age or background [is, enjoy it]. From a musical standpoint, I like pushing what we can do as a band. If a song is going to be three or four chords, I like the idea of fleshing out the song so it [sounds like it’s] more than just three or four chords. And, making it sound [really] cool live. That's been a big thing for us as well. We've been writing a lot of songs with the live show in mind. So, it's not just something that you're gonna hear in your headphones. It's gonna be something that when you also see it live, it sounds bigger and better than what you could've imagined.
Pat: Yeah, and to piggyback off of what Dom said [about] the whole [style change] and stuff like [that], I'm sure any musician can attest to the fact that they really write what they're surrounded by. So, as our music tastes have changed over the past ten years, of course, the music that we write is going to change a little bit as well. We just write music that we like and that we can put on and be like, “Oh, I'm listening to a good song.’ instead of, “Oh, I have to listen to my band.” Or anything like that. So, [we’re] just trying to always push the envelope with writing the new songs in the studio and trying to make them more interesting. Write it with the live show in mind. Make everything sound bigger and better. Even if it's little nuances that nobody else but us is gonna catch, whether it be a tambourine in the chorus or a single sleigh bell hit in a verse. You know, just stuff that we like to listen to and write.
Iceis: I think that's the most important part of any artistic outlet. You have to make what makes you happy, and you can't really worry about how it's going to be perceived or if it doesn't sound like something you've done previously because we're all humans. We evolve, and our tastes evolve, and we're surrounded by so many different things that are gonna appear in what you create. At the same time, as an artist, you get to be a lot more nit-picky about what’s in something you create. Even if other people might not outwardly notice, they would probably notice it if it wasn't there.
Iceis: Catching up to the current day, you guys have put out some new singles, “One Last Time,” ”Cruel,” and most recently, “Bang.” You guys got to collaborate with Brian Butcher and Joshua Roberts for two of those singles. What made you realize they would be really good fits to feature on those songs? And are there any other artists in the scene right now you'd like to hop on a track with?
Oliver: Yeah, so with this next record, we were like, “Okay, we want to make a bigger record.” And that's why the songs sound bigger. Our idea is [that] if we write bigger songs, we could play bigger rooms. [With] that being said, we were like, “We should finally get some of our friends to get on some of these songs.” When we toured with [The] Home Team, we were like, “It would be so sick to have Brian on a song.” Also, Josh from [Magnolia Park is] another friend of ours, so we've gotten a lot of our friends on [this record]. And, it just so [happens that] they have really cool voices and really cool bands as well. Our focus was how [we can] incorporate some newer, cool bands on our songs?” And we wrote within them. We really did pick the sound of the song to match up to their style of voice, I think, is what we really try to focus [on], and [there are] tons of people we'd love to work with. Whether we can afford them or not, I don't know, but [there are] a lot of artists that we would love to work with, but this is our first ice breaker working with other artists. It'd be cool to work with a whole band [and] do a whole band feature one day.
Domenic: Do you know the band Honey Revenge?
Iceis: Yes, I do.
Domenic: We all really want Devin on a song.
Iceis: Oooo, that’d be sick!
Domenic: Yeah, and we're friends with her now as well.
Oliver: It’d be really cool.
Iceis: Going back to your newest single, “Bang,” I feel like it’s so contrasting sound-wise because instrumentally, it’s a very upbeat, bright, and pop-like sounding song, but lyrically, you dive into some pretty deep dark stuff. I was wondering if you would share some about how the concept for that song happened and what the creative process looked like for it. And what message do you want people to take away from it?
Oliver: One of my favorite bands of all time is a band called The Cure. They write a bunch of new-wave dance music. I've always loved the idea that people would go to a dance club to listen to another man complain about how he misses his cats or his wife, or how he wants to end his life, or [how] he's going through mental issues. But then people would come along, and they'd end up on the radio. I love this band, but the whole time, he's just singing about how desperate he was to feel human. I always thought that that was a great [and] funny balance, so I like the juxtaposition of an upbeat song that's really catchy with lyrics that are kind of brooding. If you wanna go to just dance, you can cut the lyrics out of your head and just have a good time, and the word bang is a cool word to yell over a chorus, but if you wanna have sentiment and you wanna dive deeper into it, it's there for you. I like the idea of [it being] like, “Would you like this pill or this pill? Do you wanna take life seriously?” And then, how the song all came together is we [were] really focused on [writing the] chorus first. We were looking for a simple word that we could say that would sound good choppy. And then, we kind of built up the story, and then, naturally, the verses just filled in [the story] of like, “Oh, what does it mean? The reaper is at my door. What does that mean?” What I hope that people take away from this is, for me, when I wrote this, it was the idea [that] no matter what I do, I feel as if I'm being chased by my past, or like the darkness or the self-doubt and the self-hatred. So, it's empowering to embrace that. You can't have anything good in life without [being] miserable. You don't know what good is until [you’ve] felt misery, and it doesn't matter what level you are, what stature you are, [or] how much money you make in this world. Everyone's felt good, and everyone's felt bad. So, to me, the idea is, there's only one thing we all have in common, from our lifestyles to our interests, [and] to our tastes, [and that] is that one day, as a human being, you go somewhere. Where we go doesn't matter, but we know we go somewhere, and the body deteriorates. Yada. Yada. We come to an end. So, the [impact of the message], “The reaper’s at my door, [and] I don't want to run anymore.” at the end of the [music] video, [when] he meets death, he's just like, “Ah, you got me finally.” It's just the reality of the situation that we call life. But I find that it's more empowering to be like, “This life we live has an end. What happens in between the start and the finish, that's the chase.” That's the power.
Iceis: I feel like that’s a topic people don't like to contemplate too hard on. Of course, the only two definitive things in life [are] a beginning and an end. What happens after the end, we have no idea. I feel like that makes the time in between something you should appreciate a bit more. It can be so diverse between the beginning and the end, and you don't know when the end is gonna come. So, just continue to live in the moment, whether, once again, that be something really good or something really bad. At least you're living.
Oliver: Yeah, there is no wrong way to live life.
Iceis: I have a sentence that has two blanks in it that I would like each of you to fill in for me. “Broadside is the perfect band to listen to when you're *blank* because *blank*.”
Oliver: “Broadside is the perfect band to listen to when you're alone because that's why they make music in the first place.”
Domenic: Damn, I've never thought about this. “Broadside is the perfect band to listen to when you want to be in your feels but shake your ass because that's what our music is.” It's got some very heartfelt, deep lyrics and some very lovely fun lyrics, and it's always over a song that is gonna get you up and moving.
Pat: “Broadside is the perfect band to listen to when you're cleaning because of the determination and drive that you feel when you listen to the songs.”
Iceis: Maybe I need to start listening to more Broadside when my ADHD takes over. That’s the secret.
Iceis: You guys just finished some show dates with Magnolia Park. What was one of your favorite moments from those few shows you did?
Domenic: Well, we got to play “Bang” for the first time live, and it just so happened that Josh, who [was] featured on the song, got to be there, and he was so nice. He came up and performed his part with us every night, so that was fun to be able to have the first times we play [that song with] him [being] a part of it.
Oliver: So, they put a lot of work into the TikTok audience. And so, I like seeing the TikTok audience in real life. A lot of those people say, “I've never been to a show. This is the first show I've ever been to.” I liked watching that happen. [The] people come to a show being like, “I have no idea what to expect outside the four walls of my iPhone.” And then they get there, and they're just like, “Wow!” And then, you just watch the addiction start to start to happen.
Iceis: Oh yeah. If you go to one show, you have to go to about two hundred more within a year.
Oliver: Exactly! So yeah, I like seeing that happen in real life.
Pat: I think my favorite part, selfishly, was seeing the crowd's reaction to “Bang” every night. Not necessarily just us playing it, but them hearing it live for the first time and seeing the roller coaster of emotions they encounter over the course of the two-minute song. I always like seeing people react to us playing music. It makes me feel good.
Iceis: I threw an extra question in here specifically for Oliver. Outside of the music you do in Broadside, you have also published a few poetry books. I feel like writing poetry and writing lyrics are pretty similar to a certain extent. What do you feel are some of the differences and similarities when writing poems versus lyrics? And what really made you want to start publishing your poetry?
Oliver: I've been on this huge kick the past seven months of listening to other writers talk about their books, just to see how they treat their characters and how they set up things. And, I think the one thing that I've realized [that is] going to benefit me in multiple ways is the differences somebody's gonna take [from] the poetry. They're gonna sit down with it, and they're gonna choose how far they want to go into it because it's on a page. Whereas when you hear something, the way that it affects you, you cannot control [it]. Sometimes, I'll hear Tina Turner or one of these classic, beautiful voices come out, and it sends chills up your spine. It’s like, “What’s going on?” So, I feel like you have to be a little bit more delicate [with] music because you only get one opportunity to hear something for the first time. Whereas with a page, oftentimes when people read, they have to reread it because they don't get it, or they want to re-experience it, or they don't understand it. So, I feel like it's allowed me to be a little bit more cryptic and more hopeful in my writing. I feel like in [a] song, the exact message has to have an outing for me, or else it doesn't make sense. I dislike it when I hear a band’s song, and I'm like, “Most of it was there, but what are the lyrics? They don't make any sense.” That's just a pet peeve of mine. So, I think the biggest difference is the way that I treat the listener or the hearer with my [songwriting]. I feel like I can be a little bit more intense, maybe a little bit more drawn out, maybe a little bit more real, with the song. I would hate to immediately offend or go too far into a subject that maybe the listener [is] not ready to hear. So, I tend to take care of that audience a little bit more. [I] write to what they might like a little bit more. Whereas with my books, I hope to reach a vast human connection.
Iceis: Do you have a favorite poem you've written so far?
Oliver: I have a few poems. I have a poem that I wrote about falling in love with the preacher's daughter [when] I was going through puberty, and I didn't know how I was supposed to act or feel around her. Because to me, she was one of God's angels, and I'm there like, “I wanna kiss you!” Oh, [how] uncomfortable! But yeah, I don't know that I have a favorite poem that I've written because I'm still learning what [it] means to call myself a writer.
Iceis: I feel like with every different creative hobby or outlet people pursue, there’s always a bit of figuring out what you’re doing. As you put more books out, I’m sure you’ll find whatever direction you decide to take each book, and you’ll probably switch it up as you do in your music as well. There are always so many different possibilities within creative hobbies and outlets.
Oliver: That's a good point. I think once I learned to accept that, it made both writing music and writing [poetry] so much more fun. There isn't a way to be successful. You just have to be good at what you do.
Iceis: I feel like you see really successful writers, or artists, or bands, or whatever, and you're like, “I want to do that.” But obviously, what you create is not gonna be what they create. So, you have to let go of that mindset and let yourself create really well whatever it is you create.
Oliver: Yeah, a hundred percent.
Iceis: For anyone who hasn't heard of Broadside, or maybe they have, and they're still learning about you, what do you think is the most important thing for them to know about you?
Domenic: This is something that we've all really decided is the most important thing to us [that people should know, and that is] that we are friends who are in a band together. We know a lot of bands and no disrespect to them, but it is really just a business to them. They don't really get together and hang [out]. I mean, we're in an Airbnb together right now. We've been here for four days, just grilling and hanging out. I think it's nice for people to know that we genuinely all like each other, and we're here for each other, and we are lucky enough to be making music for people to listen to. I personally like it when I know when I'm listening to a band, and I know that they're actually friends. I love that.
Pat: You can hear the friendship in [the] music.
Oliver: I think it's important [for people] to know that I understand the privilege of touring, and I understand what it means that you're willing to give $20 to a T-shirt, or $10 to a record, or two minutes of your time to listen to a song. I feel like it's important [for people] to know that I, Oliver, will never take someone else's time for granted. It's important [to] me [that] I remind people [that] at shows [and] in real life. You've spent money, time, love, tears, or anything on me, [and] I will never do anything to take away what that meant for you. It's important for me for people to realize that their feelings [and] how they react to anything we do are held at the utmost because those are the things that last. We don't have much else but hope in this band, and hope comes from people telling us that we should keep going.
Pat: I want them to know that we value them more than they think we do because without them listening to the record or coming out to a show, what are we doing this for?
Iceis: Yeah, I feel like a lot of people who don't go to shows listen to bands on platforms like Spotify, and that connection through a digital platform is kind of lost. So, I think it’s a beautiful point you wanted to make. They rely on you to connect with them through music and the stuff you create to help them get through whatever they're going through, and at the same time, even though they might not know it, you rely on them to help keep you going and help keep you wanting to continue creating what you create.
Oliver: All I know is, [is] that I've had some of the best days on tour and some of the worst days on tour, but if there's a good crowd, it's always been [a case of], “At least there was a good crowd.” So, if I can get that, it's like a drug. Making people happy, seeing that people care about you, seeing people excited to be with one another, seeing people crowd surf for the first time, [and seeing people] be shocked to meet you, even though you may only be [five-feet and] seven-inches [tall], [or] even though you haven't showered in two days and you smell bad, and you've lost your wallet, they could be like, “I love that you play *blank*.” It's one of those things that no matter what, no matter what headspace I'm in, even if I'm filled with rage, it changes you, and you have to go, “Thank you for saying that.” It’s a really cool invisible tether.
Iceis: The year has flown by so fast. We’re almost at the end of August. For the remainder of the year, is there anything you guys are looking forward to occurring either professionally, personally, or both?
Pat: As a group, we're all pretty excited for Christmas. That would be a personal one. We announced a couple of weeks back [that] we're playing a show with The Maine at the end of September, so we're all super excited [about] that. We all love The Maine. That new album they put out is great. So, we're excited to play with them.
Oliver: We're in the PR cycle of [our next upcoming] album. Obviously, we're just looking forward to really locking in what this album's gonna look like. [The] release date, [the] next single, [and those sorts of things]. We’re really looking forward to polishing this record that we now have finished in a Dropbox.
Domenic: We have more shows. They just haven't been announced, I'll say this. If you've come to see us at a show the past week, we've been telling everybody. So, it's not really a secret. We have not said with [whom], we've just said, “We're coming back to this city later.”
Broadside is playing a show with The Maine in Austin, Texas on September 30th. They'll be joining This Wild Life, Worry Club, and Not My Weekend on the Tour Story tour starting in November. You can find more details on their website.
