Broadway Calls UK Tour & Album out for August

Broadway Calls new single Be All That You Can't Be (review) and Video has been released today..
while the album ‘Good Views, Bad News’ is released on the 17th August the band kick of their UK tour on the 25th August.. dates below

Originally signed by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Oregon’s Broadway Calls are due to release their second album on 17th August 2009 on Side One Dummy Records (The Gaslight Anthem, Gogol Bordello, Bedouin Soundclash). It will be available on CD/Vinyl and digital formats with an extra bonus track ‘Call Out’ on the vinyl. ‘Good Views, Bad News’ was recorded in the famed studio Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado, with Descendents and Black Flag drummer and production guru Bill Stevenson. “Recording there was the perfect match for us, not only musically but because personality wise everyone there was really honest and had so much positive input that helped make these songs better” singer Ty Vaughn explains. “Bill is seriously like no one we’ve ever worked with before, he gets way into songs, every detail is accounted for and we’re a better band for having worked with him.”

Broadway Calls are influenced as much by classic punk acts like the Ramones and the Buzz****s as they are by more modern acts such as Jawbreaker and Green Day. “We’ve always written songs that we wanted to hear, and that’s definitely true with Good Views, Bad News.”

Since forming in the unlikely locale of Rainier, Oregon, four years ago this trio of childhood friends – which also includes bassist Matt Koenig and drummer Josh Baird – have been touring constantly, and fine-tuning their unique blend of melodic pop-punk. Vaughn and Baird actually met back in sixth grade.

‘Good Views, Bad News’ is an album that transcends punk’s regimented subgenres in an effortlessly organic way. From upbeat pop-punk anthems like ‘Midnight Hour’ to melodic masterpieces like ‘The Sundowners’ and remarkably mature-sounding ballads such as ‘At The End’, ‘Good Views, Bad News’ showcases many musical sides of this immensely collaborative trio. “The first couple of tours we did were with hardcore bands, but we’ve also toured with pop acts,” Vaughn explains, adding that the band share a musical affinity with Chicago punk acts like the Lawrence Arms and Smoking Popes. “I think Broadway Calls definitely straddle a lot of lines and that’s something that’s really important to us.”
