Sad In The CityBroadway Calls

Rainier, Oregon pop punks Broadway Calls will release their first new album in seven years, Sad In The City, on July 10 via Red Scare Industries. It's their first album for Red Scare, following releases on SideOneDummy, No Sleep, and other labels, and Red Scare say, "We’ve been fans of Broadway Calls for a while now and after years of pestering they finally gave in and joined the team. Their exact words were, 'It would take a catastrophic act of god that destroyed the music industry for us to consider working with Red Scare.' And what do ya know! Thank you, 2020."

Of the new album, vocalist/guitarist Ty Vaughn says, "Sad In The City is about navigating the end of the most violent empire the world has ever seen. Making your way home to the ones you love while trying to avoid the police. Finding love and realizing how it still needs to be celebrated even as we burn the world. Dealing long overdue fatal blows to the state and the corporations they serve. It is a violent record for a violent time. This isn’t dystopian fiction. There’s a stain on the road, shaped like a kid. There’s a target on your back where it’s always been. And now everyone is Sad In The City." 

The official video for the first single "Meet Me On The Moon" can be viewed below.

Broadway Calls are back!

June 17th, 2020

I've always been a fan of Broadway Calls' brand of melodic and gritty fist in the air pop punk. Bands like Saves The Day (earlier material), Shook Ones, and Lifetime always come to mind when listening to them. With their new single "Meet Me On the Moon", it's evident that Broadway Calls haven't lost the knack for writing high energy driving melodic pop punk, that is sure to be the perfect soundtrack to your summer. Between a new Broadway Calls LP and a new Strike Anywhere EP, there's some great punk rock to look forward to in July. Be on the lookout for 11 new songs on July 10th and more thoughts on this release to come.
