As soon as the majestic opening licks of the album’s lead off track burst onto the speakers, it’s obvious that BROADSIDE are setting bigger and better goals the second time around. An album of boundless energy, Paradise is a culmination of two years’ worth of experiences, sacrifices, and tireless effort, and the end result is a go-for-broke tour de force in pop-tinged punk rock.
Paradise doesn’t completely change direction from the 2015 punchy debut Old Bones, but it shows a remarkable triumph from a band that has rarely left the road since that year. With the line “The sun peeking from the tall palm trees,” the title track ‘Paradise’ sets the personality for a summer sunshine-stained statement. “The whole concept of Paradise is that you should chase that little view of happiness you create in your mind,” explains front-man Ollie Baxxter. “We often put our dreams and desires to the side believing they’re unrealistic, but this record is about building a bridge to reach your goals, your dream, your...Paradise.”

By the summer of 2016, BROADSIDE circled the US multiple times with the likes of State Champs, Roam, and Handguns to name a few, and the demand for their punk-rooted pop anthems escalated, as they were constantly ushered to larger stages during that summers’ Vans Warped Tour. On one particular stop, Baxxter was befriended by a young, hearing impaired fan who had recently gone through ear reconstructive surgery to repair her full hearing. “I met this anxious young woman who was wearing a huge, comforting smile while waiting in line to meet us. She told me that our band was one of the first she had ever heard at full capacity, and that our performance moved her in a way she never felt before, and how lucky she was to have been able to physically hear the set. I couldn't say a word, except to hold her close and cry because it moved in a way that I've never felt. Here stood a girl, no older than my own baby sister, thanking me for performing. I was just doing my job and it was really me who should have thanked her for her strength and courage to share her story. Moments like that are exactly why I write to the youth in our songs. PUSH THROUGH, OVER ANY AND ALL OBSTACLES.”

The former Richmond, VA outfit now calls Los Angeles home, where they teamed up again with New Found Glory & All Time Low producer Kyle Black in January of 2017 to lay down the groundwork for Paradise. “You know what, Kyle Black is a wildman who knows what he is doing, and we were lucky to be able to record another record with him. I hope this record made him proud of us,” admits Baxxter. Immediately following the sessions, BROADSIDE packed their gear and headed to the United Kingdom for an inaugural visit supporting With Confidence, bowling over new fans and taking a well-deserved seat at the table of their peers.

Named Musician Of The Month by Alternative Press in March 2017, guitarist Dorian Cooke’s resilient vocals take the lead on the soulful hymn ‘Laps Around A Picture Frame,’ while ‘Tunnel Vision’ will quickly land as live favorite with its skyscraping vocals. And Paradise doesn’t just have storming tracks, the lofty ‘Who Cares’ beams with the bands inner personalities of turning a bad situation into quick witted humor, while the balance between Baxxter and Cooke’s vocals on ‘Summer Stained’ is damn near perfect. BROADSIDE expand their sound into unheard punk turf incorporating trumpet on the first video from the album, ‘Puzzle Pieces,’ and the Morrissey-channeled, ukulele driven, ‘I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.’ “This record is the sound we have been trying to achieve all of our career, we aren't afraid to try new things and that is apparent with Paradise,” declares guitarist Niles Gregory.

With Confidence’s sophomore album, Love and Loathing, was released Aug 10, 2018 and hit #1 on the Current Alternative Albums chart in the US.

The band called on veteran producer Mike Green (All Time Low, Paramore) to create Love and Loathing. An album filled with both catchy melodies and emotive lyrics, Love and Loathing carries you through first loves, blistering breakups and everything in-between. According to bassist and vocalist Jayden Seeley, the final themes weren’t clear until they had finished most of the songs.

“There's a looming relationship with loathing, mostly about the concept of self-loathing,” explains Seeley. “That period before getting into a relationship is very introspective—you’re trying to be a better person, but a lot of how that happens is because people are really hard on [themselves]. That ties back to love just as strongly, because in the relationship, you want to keep being better. In every way.”

Formed in 2012, With Confidence is lead vocalist/bassist Jayden Seeley, vocalist/guitarist Inigo Del Carmen, and drummer Joshua Brozzesi. In 2017, they took home the award for Best New Artist Music Video at the Alternative Press Music Awards and recently finished their run on the final full cross-country Vans Warped Tour.
