Agoura Hills, CA (PressExposure) March 26, 2009 -- Salt Lake Cityâs modern pop rock band Broke City from has announced their spring 2009 tour dates in fourteen cities throughout eight states. Self-described as truthful and unapologetic while still being gutsy and timeless, Broke City is a band that has seemingly gone to hell and back in a short period of time. Having experienced a major label whirlwind, the band has emerged on the other side stronger and more independent than ever.
The band is now ready to embark on their first major tour of 2009, saying âWe are excited to get back on the road, see some old faces and see some new places while making new friends as well. Some of the cities we are going to we have played in before so we want to make sure our fans know we are coming back, and if you are a new fan, come out and say hello!â
Broke City released their debut full-length album âLove is Never Enoughâ in 2004, and released their EP âThis Could Be Your Lifeâ in 2005 which garnered major label attention. In 2006, the band signed to Maverick Records and recorded another full-length album, âThe Answer.â In the summer of 2006, the label folded, leaving Broke City with an album to release independently, a tour van, and a story to tell about going from independent to a major label, and back to an independent band once again. Voted the âBest Unsigned Band in the USAâ by The Global Battle of the Bands of London, England in December 2008, Broke City is ready to take the United States by storm.
Broke City has toured and played with artists such as: Thrice, Deftones, The Used, 30 Seconds To Mars, My Chemical Romance, Saosin, Killswitch Engage, Yellowcard, Hoobastank, Blue October, Plain White Tâs, AFI, Flyleaf, Bullet For My Valentine, Head Automatica, Glassjaw, Silver Sun Pick Ups, Senses Fail, Atreyu, and many more. They have also played multiple cities across the United States from Los Angeles to New York City, and have also played in London, England and Toronto, Canada.
