Broken Witt Rebels are ready for stadiums. They wrote their forthcoming album (due out early next year via Snakefarm Records / Universal) with them in mind…
Since coming together in 2015, the quartet – dubbed ‘the Brummie Kings Of Leon’ – have shown potential for this kind of scale. But it was touring the US with Texan rockers Whiskey Myers, playing to colossal crowds, that truly gave them a taste for it.
“The bigger the crowd, the more hungry you get for an even bigger one,” nods bassist Luke Davis. “It was definitely something we craved once we’d had it.”
Broken Witt Rebels (completed by singer Danny Core, guitarist James Tranter & drummer James Dudley) have always had a cosmopolitan ear.
Inspired by the likes of Rival Sons, Kaleo, The Temperance Movement and Alabama Shakes, their knack for earthy yet fresh cocktails of rock, roots and pop has strengthened and grown – channelled through critically acclaimed EPs and 2017’s self-titled debut album, underpinned by a heavy touring schedule taking in high-profile events such as the Download & Isle Of Wight festivals in the UK and Wacken in Germany.
Recorded in Austin, Texas, Broken Witt Rebels latest album is a soaring, game-raising statement. From upbeat, modern-Nashville-meets-cutting-edge-pop opener Running With The Wolves to the lo-fi intimacy of Birmingham, it’s packed with the sort of transatlantic anthems that scream ‘radio hit’ and ‘21st century maverick’.
In November and December 2019 they’re finally heading back out on the road, and will be playing in London at the Boston Music Room on 13 December.
