Bands often use the term hiatus. Such an annoying, indefinable label of standstill. But… I guess it’s what we have been through without really noticing it.
We are not breaking up. We are ambitious with the music we create. We believe in what we do. We love playing our songs live. We miss playing our songs live. However, it’s a different ball game now. During 2018 both Emil and I became parents, which means we all have kids and families. We love it, it’s the best thing in the world, but it also changes everything. Especially for a D-I-Y band like ours. We don’t have a record label, promoter, manager or booking agency.
If we could make things happen by snapping our fingers, we’d do it right away – album launch, press work, social media, release tour, and most importantly, write new music. Unfortunately, we can’t. We have to take it step by step, and we will do that.
The rest of ’18 and the beginning of ’19 we will focus on picking up the pieces. First, we teamed up with Merch City, and made them our official merchandise platform. Second, we will soon ship out all Kickstarter-items. Third, plan the re-launch of ’79/’82 in the spring/summer of 2019 including a few national shows and, if possible, some in Germany.
So, we’re still alive, it just takes a little longer to get to the van. We will let you know when we get there.
See you soon (hopefully),

This is no April Fool’s joke. Today, we release our new album, available on Spotify, TIDAL, Apple Music, Deezer and Soundcloud. It’s been a long wait, but hopefully it was worth it. We’re damn proud of the result. We hope you are too.
Emil, ST, Jakob

The holiday’s over and we have been working hard on finishing the album. We are 99 % done. We know who we want to master the piece, the track list is done and we hope we have the final result in our hands within soon. Can’t to put it on the turntable.
Ps. This picture was found in the memory-drawer. Photoshoot from 2011.

It is time for an update. Like we mentioned in the last post, we are right now waiting for the final mix. Our song ‘Travelling Girl’ (working title) is being used as test person to find the sound that will be prominent throughout the record and we are very close. It will be a less aggressive expression, but still keeping very tight and diverse. The idea is to present the songs in a rough feel, but without drowning it in massive guitars and big productions.
We hope the final mix of the album will be done by mid-/late June. Hopefully we will have a song or two ready for you to listen to before that. Just remember, we are as impatient as you probably are.
Keep it cool,

No more radio silence. We are ready for the next chapter as we begin to see light at the end of the tunnel. The recordings are done, and we are right now in the fase of mixing, finding the right sound for the album. We told you it would be a different record from our first one – and it will be. Everything from the songs, the sound, the producer and the studio have changed. In the process we did not want to live up to any style, genre or expectations. We did what felt right, always pushing to create something new.
Sebastian has as a person, producer and songwriter been a huge inspiration and opened our eyes to how a record can be made. Basically turning the whole thing upside down. To you it might sound like just another rock album, but to us it was a totally new experience.
So… when will it be released? We aim for a late summer release. This stage in the process is tricky. Some songs are done after the first mix. Others take four to five takes. We will of course keep you updated.
It feels amazing to finally tell you the news and get the machine going again. We cannot wait to let you hear the result. And to play them live.
Emil, Anders and Jakob
Ps. During the recordings both Sebastian and our dear guitarist Anders became fathers. Life!

We got some exciting news. We are making a new album. Next month we will hit the studio, and this time it will be different – new studio, new producer and 12 new songs.
To make it possible to enter the studio we desire and work with the producer we believe will take us the next step we need your help. We have have started a Kickstarter campaign and the goal is to raise enough money to work with producer, Sebastian Wolff. Sebastian is the singer, songwriter and producer of the band Kellermensch. He has a special sound and a great ear, which he has proven on records with The Floor Is Made Of Lava – one of our favorite Danish rockbands.
We hope for your support and will keep you updated on the project the next days and weeks. This is only the beginning.

Even though we had a great time and felt we did a good job last time we supported Bad Religion. And even though they guys told us so – we never expected that we would get another chance to share stage with the band that meant so much to the music we love. Luckily we were wrong. Once again Bad Religion invited us on board and next weekend, the 14th and 15th of August 2015, we will join them for two Scandinavian gigs on their European tour.
Needless to say that it will be a blast and we are looking so much forward to it. Right now we are writing songs and planning 2016. This is the perfect kick-off for a new chapter in this little group’s history.

“Flashback Friday”. This is the very first band picture of us. Taken by Peter Svendsen outside Dead Rat Studio early 2011. At that time Broadway Killers was just a side project started by three friends that shared the same passion for the same kind of music. Four years later we have released three EPs, one album and played countless concerts in various countries with bands like Beatsteaks, Anti Flag and Bad Religion. We never ever expected this to happen when this picture was taken a spring day in May.
Today we hit the road once again to do what we love the most – playing live. We’re not a studio band, we’re a live band. In no way are we the biggest or most important band in the world and we will never be, however, that’s not why we started. We started Broadway Killers to play the music WE love. Being able to do that, get the experiences we get through our music and the fact that people sstill show up, buy or in some way enjoy what we do is enough. That’s pretty awesome. You should try it.
Soon I’ll meet up with the guys, jump in the three-person-front-seat-van, put on our tour-CDs and have the f*cking best time of my life. Again.
See you all out there!
