About Broke City
Salt Lake City, UT
Broke City is a four-piece alternative rock band whose music creates a wall of sound by layering driving guitars, dynamic melodies, and confessional lyrics. Hailing from Salt Lake City, UT, Broke City has cultivated a rabid local following. Their intoxicating and gritty style on stage, coupled with the gutsy wail of lead singer Joel Pack, has landed them on tours throughout the United States and Canada with bands like 30 Seconds to Mars, Thrice, and The Used. Although their third album, The Answer, was almost silenced due to Warner Bros. absorption of Maverick Records, Broke City persevered, and released it independently to the praise of a following who related to the emotionally fueled record. Armed with both true life and industry experiences, the band adopted the "Earn it Yourself" values of bands like Thrice and Alkaline Trio. Demons behind them, Broke City is currently at work writing and recording powerful new material for possible inclusion on their fall 2010 release, from which half of the proceeds will go to the St Jude Childrens Hospital.
