Check out 'Empty' and 'King Of Nothing' now.

Broadside have released two brand new tracks, 'Empty' and 'King Of Nothing'.

Check out both songs below:

On 'King Of Nothing', frontman Ollie Baxter says "This is a song about wanting to be the best. We chose this life as touring musicians but it can be painfully lonely. We all want to be heard and play to massive crowds while making enough money that our parents won’t worry about our futures." 

"I’m so proud of our accomplishments as a band but some nights, after the show ends and those crowds leave the venue, when you’re in the back seat of a dark van, you feel like you’re not doing enough and those dreams you have become nightmares of what you’ll never achieve. You can be on top of the world and have nothing."

Meanwhile, regarding 'Empty', Ollie says "I was going through a real out of body misery when writing this song. The duality of a being a broken-hearted romantic splits a person. On one hand, you've been wronged, you should run and never look back." 

"On the other, the rewarding time spent and memories made keep you trapped in the worrisome ‘what if this person leaves’ psychosis. I wanted to write a dance-y song making fun of how unfortunate it is to be in love, sometimes."

Broadside will head out on a US tour supporting Set It Off later this summer, beginning June 11 in Colorado Springs.
