Bombed Out and artist news

The debut album from Matthew Broadbent & Co. will be out later this month.
While unashamedly not a punk record, there is an honesty in this that should appeal to open-minded fans of the genre while fans of alt-country, roots rock and indie folk music will appreciate what a well rounded and full bodied album The Brown Hound James Band have produced. There's a deftness to the musicianship and craftsmanship on offer here that is rarely heard in our scene - and that in itself might put some people off - but fuck it, this one's for us.
To put it bluntly, At The Home Of The Heartlands is a collection of fantastic songs by someone who has been a part of Bombed Out since our second release (it's been over a dozen years since that first Dugong 7") and we're honoured to be releasing it. There are no expectations or grand plans short of a few gigs that the band, now featuring ex-members of Milloy and Everybody Is Going To Die, will be sure to partake in and that's OK by us.
So, put your assumptions aside on what makes for a standard Bombed Out release and go have a listen. You might just discover one of your favourite releases of the year.
