Play With Guns


Broken Witt Rebels continue their rise

In the past few weeks, the buzz around self-released, Birmingham blues rock band Broken Witt Rebels has reached a deafening roar. So much so that the band have rushed out new single GUNS to capitalize on fan driven interest.

It all started when a live version of previous single LOW was uploaded to their Facebook page, within 4 days the video had amassed an incredible close on 500,000 views!. This caught the attention of viral content geniuses Buzzfeed, who invited the band into their offices to play a live streamed gig for their 1.3m strong Facebook group, part of their Music Breaks Series. Just when it seemed like it couldn’t get any better, the GUNS video was elevated to the front page of YouTube. At the time of writing, the video has amassed over 100,000 views in less than one day.

Chosen by the fans, GUNS is now the second single to be taken from the band’s Georgia Pine EP  The EP is produced by Tom Gittins (Robert Plant) and was originally released on April 15th. First single LOW was a featured track of the week on Radio X, and play-listed on Planet Rock, who are now also supporting GUNS.

GUNS hooks listeners in with James Tranter’s expert guitar riff, before James Dudley’sthundering drums usher in Danny Core’s impassioned vocals and anthemic chorus. GUNS plays homage to their hometown of Birmingham with a melody and energy that tears through you, with the refrain. “Born and raised where Guns are made, they burn bright like a cigarette.”

BWR’s bluesy southern tinged swagger has drawn favourable comparisons with Kings of Leon, Alabama Shakes and The Black Keys, while their legendary live shows frequently result in stage invasions with fans rushing the stage in response to the band’s famous shoes off war cry!
