Broadside drops video for ‘Hidden Colors’

Broadside has returned with a brand new music for another new track off their impending new album. On Thursday (May 11), the Virginia-based band took to Twitter to promise fans that once their post reached a total of 616 re-tweets they would release their music video for “Hidden Colors.” At first, the number of re-tweets requested may have seemed strange, but it turns out that 616 is the date their new album is set to hit store.

Two hours after the initial post, the post reached the requested re-tweets with the band keeping their promise by releasing the music video for “Hidden Colors.”

The over-three-minute clip primarily features the band performing inside of what looks like a warehouse with graffiti all over the walls. Almost a minute into the clip, the graffiti changes from normal colors to neon paint thanks to the help of what we can assume is a black light. Let’s just say the guys no longer look like they’re performing inside a depleted warehouse that’s about to crash all around them, but rather, a cool night club.

When asked about the inspiration about the song, vocalist Oliver Baxxter revealed what it’s about. “We wanted to represent the women in our life with the utmost respect and how grateful we are for them.”

He adds: “We live in a very romantic time, but not enough people are focusing on where the romance actually comes from, the pure undying desire for love. ‘Hidden Colors’ is about young lovers in the night. It’s about telling that person just what you appreciate about them. You can NEVER tell someone enough how much they actually mean to you.”

“Hidden Colors” will join lead single “Puzzle Pieces” on Broadside’s sophomore album, Paradise. Paradise is set to be released on June 16 through Victory Records. Pre-orders for the new record are currently available here. Those who pre-order Paradise will be given an instant download of “Puzzle Pieces.”

Just in time for the release of their new album, Broadside will be hitting the road with Real Friends, Have Mercy, Tiny Moving Parts, Nothing, Nowhere.

Broadside unveil video for ‘The Simple Type’


After spending their full summer on the Vans Warped Tour, Broadside is ready to pay homage to the two months spent on the annual, traveling rock show. On Wednesday (Aug. 3), the Virginia-based band released their music video for their latest single, “The Simple Type.” The music video, which runs at under three-and-a-half minutes, was recorded during the Syracuse, NY and Virginia Beach, VA (the guys’ hometown show) stop of Warped Tour.

The video features behind-the scenes clips on the group performing onstage, meeting fans, signing autographs, and some-on-the-tour-bus antics. “‘The Simple Type’ is about living on the edge of your seat,” explains vocalist Ollie Baxxter about the group’s latest single. “I wrote it about my younger brother. He’s very low-key and makes decisions based off initial judgement. He’s one of those people that you sit back and ask how he got so lucky to not over analyze a decision, doesn’t fear any person, and still comes out on top. Like the line says, ‘Shoot first, ask questions last!'”

Watch the video for “The Simple Type” below.

“The Simple Type” is featured on Broadside’s 2015 release, Old Bones. Currently, the band is wrapping up their final days on the Vans Warped Tour with the promise of new tour dates coming soon.

Watch Broadside Get Beat Up in “Come & Go”


Broadside have been making waves over the past year with their pop-punk sound. Now, the Virginia-based band are giving fans, and newcomers alike, something to laugh at with their new music for “Come & Go.”

The music video begins with the band’s tour van breaking down, a problem most young bands have to endure. Of course, they’re left wondering just how they can remedy the situation since bands in their early years aren’t exactly known for banking. That’s when a bunch of fluorescent posters come into play.

The posters are ads for an amateur roller derby competition with the winners earning a “huge cash prize.” With the guys strapped for cash they do the only logical thing; enroll in the competition. Check out the music video for “Come & Go” below and watch as the “Broadsquad” get their butts kicked.

“The majority of us have never been on a pair of roller-skates, we are more comfortable with skateboards, so we knew this was going to be a fun challenge,” Broadside vocalist Ollie Baxxter explains about the making of the video.

“For the video, we thought about doing something like a 1970’s roller rink party, or an old-school battle of the bands, but we finally agreed that it would be cool to 100% have our asses kicked. With that in mind, we headed to Milwaukee to battle the ladies of the Brew City Bruisers, a group of gals who are very talented and passionate (about kicking ass) and it shows in this video.”

“Come & Go” is the third music video off of their recently released record, Old Bones. Old Bones was released earlier this year through Victory Records. Currently, the band are in the middle of wrapping up their final tour of 2015 with ROAM, Handguns, and Sudden Suspension. The remaining dates of the tour can be seen below.
