Broadcaster announce new EP, premiere new song

Long Island's Broadcaster has announced a new EP entitled Spin. It was recorded with Phil Douglas who has worked with Iron Chic and Latterman. It is due out later this year on Jump Start Records, the same label that released A Million Hours in 2013.

The band is promising a rawer sound more akin to their live show in addition to the '90s college rock sound they've honed over the years. They are playing Fest 14 and will soon announce shows in support of the new release.

You can stream a track from the new EP at Brooklyn Vegan and pre-order it from Jump Start's Bandcamp page.

In Memoriam
Mike Herrera (The Blackout Pact, Tin Horn Prayer)  1982-2015

Mike Herrera (The Blackout Pact, Tin Horn Prayer) 1982-2015

We are sad to hear of the news that Mike Herrera, known for his work in The Blackout Pact, Sleeper Horse and Tin Horn Prayer, has passed away at the age of 33.

Mikey was a man of many talents. He left a huge imprint on the Denver punk scene. He was well-versed in many instruments but it was his songwriting and his voice that stood out the most. Beyond his music he was an incredible friend that would bend over backwards to help you. Despite his demons he always did his best to shine through.

Mikey was in many, many bands. Most notably The Blackout Pact and Tin Horn Prayer. You can listen to some of their flawless releases below.

There is currently a GoFundMe page set up to gather money for Mike's funeral. You can donate here.

Rest in peace, Mikey. Love your face.
