Published Jul 28, 2020Toronto rock unit Dead Broke are hitting us up with their next release. The noise-loving group have just unloaded a new EP called Druids, and to go along with it, you can watch a video for its title track.
The two-track EP features the new song "Druids" and the B-side "Sludgehammer." The mini-release was tracked and produced by Crispin Day (Shad, Jeremie Albino) at Taurus Recording and the Cabin in Toronto, with mastering courtesy of Andy Magoffin at House of Miracles (Constantines, Two Minute Miracles). Above, that's the EP's rather killer cover art, which was done by Joel French.
Speaking of the "Druids" video, Dead Broke frontman Mike Bright explained the following:
For years, Toronto has been experiencing a widening socioeconomic divide. With pockets of unfathomable wealth and pockets of deep poverty existing on opposite corners of the same intersection, it has become impossible to ignore. We wanted to shine a light on these extremes in the music video for "Druids" — a song that's about having symbols of hope torn away from you. The song chases feelings of desperation, shaky faith, addiction, growing mistrust of the systems that we exist within, and the sense of having to wait for help. These are feelings that I think everyone can relate to right now.
The video was directed, shot and edited by Rachel and Mike Bright, and you can watch it down below, where you can also check out the entire Druids EP.
