Broadway Signs to Uprising
Happy hardcore band Broadway have signed with Uprising Records.

Press Release
Bursting onto the Florida scene, Broadway has been selling out local venues such as "The Social" in Orlando, and "The Capital" in Ocala - riveting audiences with their catchy hooks and sophisticated song structures. At the forefront of a new musical revolution sweeping Florida, Broadway have become a major focal point of attention - a position built through constant interaction with their fans and undying support of the local scene. "We love our fans, they're the reason we make music. Without them, we're just five guys in a garage," remarks singer Misha.
For years, guitarist Nick Trombino and Jake Garland had been making music together, as had best friends, vocalist Misha Camacho and guitarist Jack Fowler. So it seemed like fate, when Nick asked Misha to come sing for Broadway, and then asked him if he knew any guitarists. With a further recommendation from Misha and Jack, old friend and bassist Will Marin joined the mix, and completed the five piece rock band known as Broadway.
Combining the genres of happy hardcore, screamo, and just plain rock, Broadway walks a thin, subtle line that satisfies every taste in alternative music.

That's right, happy hardcore.

i hate this trend of bands calling themselves happy hardcore

happy hardcore is rave music

acts like styles & breeze and dj hixxy are happy hardcore

awful. but who knows what some studio magic can do..

Happy hardcore is not this. This is not happy hardcore.

Justin Link 04/02/08 08:57 PM

what is this chiodos bullshit that bands are doing? chiodos didn't do it right and no one else has either. a few improperly placed breakdowns and double bass pedals doesn't make you a hardcore band.

First time I've heard of this "genre."

theres nothing happy or hardcore about this band!

i like the 'happy hardcore' genre, but this is nottt that genre. its just the same old, scene post hardcore. in my mind, the only two happy hardcore bands that i've heard are four year strong and bangarang. those two do it so well. its pop punk, but played with technique that is similar to the metal-ish hardcore

How have I not heard this band before. They're catchy as shit. They remind me a lot of Chiodos, which I like.

And for those beating a dead horse, who cares about how they label themselves. Listen to the music, don't have a shit fit over the "happy hardcore" thing.
