Broken Witt Rebels announce new album and share new video

Plus, the band have added more dates to their UK tour this spring. 

Birmingham rockers Broken Witt Rebels have confirmed extra shows for their spring headline tour in support of second studio album, OK Hotel, set for global release on 13 March via Snakefarm Records.

This OK Hotel tour runs from late March right through to late May; it will now kick off in Milton Keynes and include visits to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dublin, Belfast and Buckley.

As one of Birmingham’s finest home-grown talents, Broken Witt Rebels are an up an’ coming force to be reckoned with, delivering a modern, Nashville-rock-meets-cutting-edge-pop style that’s made for the 21st century.

Inspired by the likes of Rival Sons, Kaleo & Alabama Shakes, their blues-tinged, rock ‘n’ roll swagger is laden with gutsy guitars and anthemic hooks, giving them an infectious, arena-worthy sound that has seen them achieve critical acclaim and led them to stages across the US and Europe.

Recently, Broken Witt Rebels shared the lyric video for new album track, Running With The Wolves; to match the song’s primary theme of perseverance, the clip contains imagery of individuals engaging in a variety of athletic pursuits. The official music video for the track, meanwhile, is set to arrive next week, featuring thrilling ‘banger racing’ scenes.

Running With The Wolves, along with the recently released Money, also from the new album, is available as part of a double A-side 7” coloured vinyl single – serving as a first taste of what’s to come on OK Hotel itself.

Since getting together in 2015, Broken Witt Rebels – comprising Danny Core (vocals), James Tranter (guitar), Luke Davis (bass) and James Dudley (drums) – have independently worked a series of EPs prior to releasing their self-titled debut album in 2017 (also via Snakefarm).

These releases have been supported by headline and support shows across the globe, including a stateside run with Texan rockers Whiskey Myers, plus European dates with Blue October.

Broken Witt Rebels’ live portfolio also takes in appearances at a host of major festivals, the likes of Reading and Leeds, Download UK, Wacken Open Air, Camden Rocks and The Great Escape, and last year they finished off 2019 with a run of UK headline shows, stopping off for a date at London’s Boston Music Room.
