CD Review: CKY Rises With "The Phoenix" & Broadside Finds "Paradise" On New Release

The hard rock trio, CKY return with their 5th studio album, "The Phoenix," which will be released on June 16th through eOne Music. CKY have continued to grow and evolve with each album and after almost 8 years between releases, we truly notice the full potential of the band. Their new 8-song release begins with the thunderous rhythm of "Replaceable" as the rawness of the trio is felt in this recording. Guitars come out blazing on "Days Of Self Destruction," before the boys get dark and dirty on the grunge-like metal appeal of "The Other Ones." Their new release wraps with the powerful, hard-hitting attack of "Wiping Off The Dead" and the classic, mystical metal of "Better Than Get Even." CKY are currently on the road in Europe before returning to North America for a tour of Canada and then joining the Vans Warped Tour this summer.

Back in 2015, Virginia punk band, Broadside released their Victory Records debut album "Old Bones." Now the band returns with their follow-up release titled "Paradise." After spending the summer of 2016 on the road as part of the Vans Warped Tour, Broadside headed into the studio to record their 11-song follow-up. Their new album kicks off with the alternative pop-rock of "Hidden Colors" as Broadside will continue to attract fans with their youthful energy. They inject summer fun into their songs "Paradise" and "Lose Your Way," before returning to their punk roots with "Disconnect." Broadside deliver a new high school anthem with "Who Cares," before finishing with the sing-along chorus of "Miss Imperius" and the ukulele-pop strumming of "I Love You, I Love You, It's Disgusting."
