SongVault Artist Profile
Punk / Alternative
BROOMFILLER is Toronto, Canada’s answer to melodic punk rock. Blending melodic vocals, bass lines and rhythmic drumming with a very energetic live show, enables them to easily stand out.
No strangers to touring, the band toured their sophomore album, "Enter the Storm" twice in the US. (Spring U.S. tour - 41 shows in 46 days & Fall U.S. Tour 54 shows in 60 days), while garnering much praise for their indie DIY work ethic and radio play for their single "The Cause" reaching #1 on Pennsylvania's college charts.
"Enter the Storm" follows on the heels of "Watching the girls go bi", which received much success and recognition across Canada, USA & Europe. The video for Decide Inside was in rotation on Much Music, and featured on Toronto's Edge 102. They have toured extensively in Canada since 2002 and in the US since 2004.
BROOMFILLER have been compared to Foo Fighters holding
hands with Bracket while sitting on a park bench eating a
sandwich made by Bad Religion, Face to Face & Husker Du.
Recently becoming a 4 piece, only strengthens the wall of sound that the band presented live as a trio. The band is currently in pre-production for a new full length album, so you can expect an even fuller and intricately melodic sound.
