Long Island NY’s Broadcaster just released their J Robbins-produced A Million Hours on Jumpstart Records, and are celebrating with a new video (see AbsolutePunk debut) and tour!
The Samuel Gurksy-directed video captures the band live, which is fitting as Broadcaster is hitting the road today (look for them down the east coast and be sure to check them out at Fest)!
An energetic bounce and sing-along-ready vocals are two of the most immediately noticeable qualities to Broadcaster’s brand of pop-rock. The Long Island based three-piece have shown remarkable consistency in their output since their start in the Spring of 2010. The result is something almost canonical – their discography is only a few releases long, but there is a well-worn feel to their sound, a blend of modern punk and indie rock with a pleasant helping of 90’s college rock influence. A Million Hours is a concise, fully-realized display of the catchy, fuzzy energy that Broadcaster have made their own.

Praise for Broadcaster:
“For the snotty snarl and gunky hooks of indie-punk forebears Jawbreaker and Superchunk, look no further than Broadcaster’s “Tomorrow.”” – SPIN
“The band’s hooky guitar pop lends itself to nostalgia-laden comparisons to college rock’s comeing-of-age period. – Alternative Press
“Every single song on this album should be a hit. A Million Hours has something that should appeal to fans of rock music in general.” – Punknews
