Broadway Killers

– from D.I.Y to Bad Religion’s darlings

The Danish punk rock band Broadway Killers believes in only two things – good song writing and intense live performances.

It starts as a side project as Emil, Anders and Jakob decide to go back to their musical roots. With bands like Nirvana, Social Distortion and Pearl Jam in mind, they create a sound that states their belief that real music is being played by real people.

Quickly the band wins international acclaim within the scene. Founder and bass player of Bad Religion, Jay Bentley, describers the band as; “the best new band out there right now”. Lead singer of the American punk band Anti-Flag, Justin Sane, appears on the debut album and Broadway Killers has opened for Bad Religion, Anti-Flag and one of the most successful German rock bands, Beatsteaks.

In August 2014 – after releasing three EPs – the debut album, “Broadway Killers”, is released. A ten track and 28 minutes long record that sounds like three people playing fast, aggressive and melodic punk rock. Listen here.

“I don’t want to attach any superlatives to our music. I let people do that. Our goal is to clarify our belief in solid song writing, simplicity and the fact that three people can still make a difference with just a guitar, a bass and a drum kit.” – Jakob Thalund Møller, lead singer Broadway Killers.

The record becomes the ticket to several Bad Religion tours and the bands signs with the acknowledged German booking agency x-why-z.

In 2016, after a short break, Broadway Killers starts writing new material for their upcoming album. Songs that will show a totally new and different approach. The studio and surroundings are new, and the producer is changed as well. Sebastian Wolff, leadsinger in the band Kellermensch, is helping the band in a new and exciting direction. The album is out in the fall of 2017.
