“Broach” – The meaning of the band’s name, is no coincidence. After the release of the enormously strong debut album “My Darkest Hour” from the year 2011, which was highly praised by major German music magazines such as RockHard, a record deal and the victory of the German Rock & Pop Award, the five musicians tied to the successes with the current album “Fall to Rise”. At the same time, the musicians remain musically faithful, but the basic mood of the new album is no longer as gloomy as that of the first work in which death and separation were processed. With the new album the first music video of the band was released, which was filmed for the title song of the album and has already achieved massive clicks on different platforms.
In 2018, another music video for the song „Set Me On Fire“ was released. The current album „Fall to Rise“ currently has more than 2.0 million streams on Spotify and more than 450,000 clicks on YouTube, making it an absolute success story for the band. The current line-up of the band has been on stage since 2014 and the chemistry between the musicians is right, what you can feel in their live performances. If you ask the five members of BROACH for their influences, names of big bands such as Nickelback, Creed, Breaking Benjamin or Godsmack fall.
Catchy songs, heavy drums, fat bass and striking guitar riffs in harmony with the distinctive voice of lead singer Andi Kofler make the sound of BROACH unique. Together, the five musicians from Bavaria are a force of nature on stage. The shows are usually powerful, with songs like „Awake“ or „So Close“, but you will also hear quieter tones during the concerts, like „Last Dance“ or „Broken Road“. The bandwidth is large and so the music of BROACH also appeals to many listeners of different genres. Currently, the band is often back on stage and starts collecting new ideas for a third studio album.
By this time, the band can look back on many successful and sold-out shows, whereas the Chiemsee Summer Festival with about 30,000 visitors is certainly one of the highlights.
