Richmond VA pop-punks team up with Brian Butcher of The Home Team on latest single.
Broadside have shared their brand new single, Cruel featuring Brian Butcher of The Home Team, out now via SharpTone Records. The upbeat track underscores the deeply emotional lyrics that tackle what it feels like to face your fears when it feels like the world is trying to bring you down.
“This song is about facing your fears,” shares vocalist Ollie Baxxter. “For years, I’ve allowed my dreams to slip out of my hands from things I can’t control. Cruel as a song, is about hitting the nail on the head, allowing yourself to be washed out in the headlights of oncoming traffic. If you’ve got something to lose, this world is cruel, or it can be. So hold on tight.”
The band also shared the accompanying video for the track today. Directed by Sam Link, the video follows the band as they pull off a hotel heist
Coming up, the band is gearing up to head out on tour with The Home Team and Honey Revenge. Kicking off on March 25th in Salt Lake City, UT at The Beehive, the band will visit over 20 cities across the country including stops in Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, Los Angeles and more, before wrapping up in Portland, OR on April 29th at McMenamins Mission Theater.
