With Every Lowdown Comes A Song (live in Berlin)

Played and recorded in Berlin at Huxleys Neue Welt as support for Bad Religion. July, 2014.

Flashback Friday

band“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.

Comet Club (Berlin), FZW (Dortmund), Bloack 35 (Schleswig) and Cobra Bar (Hamburg) are coming up and we can’t wait to play a high energetic and honest rock show.

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!
Jakob

Longing for the stage

blog

Friday night we enjoyed our first show in 2015. What a great feeling being back on stage and feel the energy. We did some changes in the set, new list, new order and played songs like “Places We Both Want To Go”. Thanks to all the people who showed up and to all friends who stopped by to show their support at one of our rare Copenhagen concerts. We hope for many more, because we longing for the stage.

Last weekend’s show might also be the last without new songs. We are writing new material right now. Some songs will make the cut others won’t. So next time you get a chance to see us live, you might hear songs that will never be played again.

We got the sweet taste of playing live again and we cannot wait for the next gig to come up! Rumor has it that we will visit Germany incl. Berlin in May…

See you all out there soon!

A new year, a new beginning

blog_broadway_1.jpg2014. An unbelievable year for our little group. First of all we joined our heroes, Bad Religion, on tour throughout Europe. Secondly, we released our debut album. And finally, we went on tour in the Gibson Tour Bus with Three Chord Society. I could stop right here and these four lines would describe what some bands fight for for a lifetime. We experienced it all in half a year… However, we move on. We have new dreams and ambitions.

2015. It has already begun and will kick start for real next Friday when we play our first concert this year in Copenhagen at UnderWerket. Furthermore, we have started writing songs for an EP that we will be recorded late summer/early autumn. We don’t know about the musical direction, but all have an idea about what we would like to do. How we would like to sound.

It’s been a while since you have heard from us, but we are still alive. Broadway Killers exists because of our friendship and we need it in our lives. One way or an other.

See you soon out there
Love, Jakob

Old Friends, New Adventures

It’s the first time we will join forces on tour with our friends in Three Chord Society. However, we have known the guys for years. I guess it’s eight years ago, since I met the band for the first time. They have always been great guys, fun to be around and only gotten better and better as a band. I think their song-writing-holidays in Denmark paid off;) Songs like “Swan Song”, “I Am An Ocean”, Into The Wild” and “On The Brink” are just some of their great tunes.

The band has just had a two years break, but we are thrilled to have them on board. Next month we will hit the road on our co-headliner tour. Can’t wait to get the engine going and see them and you out there.

Best, Jakob
