SECRET BROADCAST – “THE CAUSE AND THE CURE”
RELEASED BRAND NEW TRACK TODAY
OPEN TONIGHT FOR NEW PORNOGRAPHERS IN FREE SHOW AT YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE
PENNY ARCADE (2018)
June 8, 2018
Heralded Calgary-via-Toronto rock outfit, Secret Broadcast have just released their latest single “Cause And The Cure”. The track is from their forthcoming LP, Penny Arcade, which is due out later this year on Entertainment One. On Penny Arcade, their second LP, they explore the divisive state of our sociopolitical landscape to a soundtrack of lush, organic blues-tinged rock ‘n’ roll.
The band’s breakout full-length, 2014’s Filthy Souls, showcased the shimmering soundscapes of post-Britpop atop the foundation of overdriven blues-based, reverb-drenched rock ‘n’ roll in a resulting sonic concoction that was all their own.
This time around, Secret Broadcast have kept those key components intact while refining their approach to songwriting and delivering a more dynamic and impactful musical experience. Horns, banjos, synths, even a gospel choir – anything that served the emotion and impact of the material was fair game. The cuts fit right into Secret Broadcast’s barn-burning live sets, built on their tight rhythmic prowess and unbridled energy.
As people gravitate towards increasingly polarizing viewpoints on everything from politics and religion to love and drugs, some powerful, compelling, and hard-hitting rock and roll may just be the bridge we need to reconnect and reignite, and Secret Broadcast have plenty of that to go around.
Be sure to catch the Secret Broadcast tonight as they open a free show for The New Pornographers at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square. You won’t be disappointed.
“Cause and the Cure is about losing someone you love and not being able to move on,” states frontman Matt Lightstone. “When your identity becomes tied with another person or an ideology and it is suddenly removed from your life, you effectively lose yourself completely.”
