New Release from Broken Witt Rebels "Broken Witt Rebels" On Snakefarm





Broken Witt Rebels will have their debut album released via Snakefarm Records (CD & DL) on November 24th, with a vinyl version following early next year.


Produced by the band and Tom Gittins (who has worked with Robert Plant, amongst others) and called simply 'Broken Witt Rebels', this 10-track outing matches six songs from the Birmingham band;s 2 most recent EPs - 'Howlin'' and 'Georgia Pine' - with four brand new numbers, including the lead single 'Wait For You'.

A heady blend of blues, soul, wailing rock guitar and deeply emotive vocals, this award-winning outfit have been busy building their profile via the aforementioned EPs, plus debut four-tracker 'This Town Belongs To Me', along with a touring schedule that has seen the four switching between headline shows and high-profile guest appearances, sharing stages with Joanne Shaw Taylor, Kaleo, Whiskey Myers and more, the latter in both the UK and US.

Along the way, BWRs - that's Danny Core(vocals / rhythm guitar), Luke Davis(vocals / bass), James Tranter(vocals / lead guitar) & James Dudley(drums) - have appeared at many of Europe's primary festivals, including Download, Wacken, Reading and Leeds and Isle Of Wight, with Planet Rockstock(UK) lined up for December.

Right now, they are in the early stages of an extensive headline UK run, supported by Nashville-based singer / songwriter Sonia Leigh; after this, they head over to mainland Europe, and then onto Ireland with 'country fuzz' maestros, The Cadillac Three.

So far, the only thing missing has been a debut album, and the band are delighted to have resolved that situation with the eponymous Snakefarm release - fully remastered to allow the older material to sit naturally alongside the recent recordings...

Say Broken Witt Rebels:-

"Our album has been a long time coming. It's a culmination of the past two years of hard work and we couldn't be prouder of what it's become. We've crafted the record to take the listener along our journey so far, and it also marks a milestone in our career as we move from the unsigned world to being with a label. We're very proud to have signed a deal with Snakefarm Records, and with the Snakefarm team behind us we can't wait to take things to the next level."

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
