It’s Not Me, You Are — Out This Friday!

Hey guys!

Welcome to our new website (if you’re reading this on our new site!). As you will hopefully know by now we are releasing our new EP this Friday (15/July) at Norwich Central Baptist Church!

We’ve spent the last 10 (or so!) months preparing for this release and we’re really pleased with the recordings and we hope that you will be too! We recorded 4 of the tracks with producers Chris Taylor and Sanj Rajo in Southampton during Easter in their wonderful studio Purple Square Studios. And we recorded the little piano song ourselves as well as the bonus remix! The CD was also fantastically mastered by our friend James from OneMillionMangos.com. We’re also very thankful to the many people who have funded and supported us to make this CD, without you none of this would have been possible!

The first place you can get the new EP is on Friday night @ NCBC and soon after that you will be able to download it from many of the usual online stores (iTunes, AmazonMP3, 7digital, etc.) and order a hard copy from our websites!  We recommend you get a hard copy as the design looks great!

So, hopefully we will see lots of you on Friday night (more details here) or if not, we hope you enjoy our new music and we hope to see you at a gig soon!

We Need Your Help!

This is possibly the biggest favour we could ever ask of you guys, but I hope that you’ll read on and help us make something special!

We’re Brokenfor, we formed when we were at the ages of 11 and 12. We couldn’t really play our instruments and we didn’t really know why we were in a band, but we liked it, so we had a go.
That was 8 years ago and we’re still making music, playing instruments and having fun but we’ve found the reason why we do what we do. We’ve got a passion for seeing the Gospel affect the lives of young people. Making music is the way we release that passion.
The Gospel is not just about what’s been and done, but what’s happening now and what is to come. We make music that we love, inspired by the artists that we listen to everyday, injected with a message of hope, not just so it can be enjoyed now, but so it can inspire the next generation to love and be loved.

This is where you come in. We’ve got some new songs and we really want to record them so that you can hear them, your friends can hear them, the girl next door can hear them, they lad down the street can hear them, the kids in the playground, the young people in the Churches. You get the idea. But, we need your help! To do these songs justice, we need to spend quite a few pennies on making a new EP!

So, we’ve set up a website:
www.indiegogo.com/help-brokenfor-get-to-the-studio

On this website you can donate to our EP and we’ll give you some great things in return for your kindness. For example, if you donate as little as £6, you’ll get your name in our “special thanks” section of our CD booklet, a free badge and a ltd. edition signed poster! There are many more goodies too!
Making this EP is not just about music, but life. We want to be able to do this everyday of our lives. Write songs, play shows and reach more and more people with this message of love and hope that Jesus saves. By investing in this CD you can help us try and achieve our goal.

Thank you!

Summer time and the living is easy…

Hey Peeps!

It’s been a bit quiet lately hasn’t it!

We’ve been working hard these last months since the release of our debut EP. Over the summer we’re laying low and working on some new songs and ideas which we hope to have ready to perform in the new school year. So if you don’t hear much from us you know it’s because we’re busy preparing something exciting!

Speaking of the next school year (sorry, it’s a bit early to be thinking about all that again isn’t it!), anyway, starting in September two of our band members, Ben and Dan, will be joining Norwich Youth For Christ to spend a year volunteering whilst Dicky finishes his last year at University. Some interesting ideas are already in the pipeline regarding what Ben and Dan will be getting up to! We feel passionate about getting out there to make a difference in the lives of young people in and around Norwich and further afield, whether that is through our music or through the youth work we will be involved with.

So keep checking back to see how we’re getting on! We’re so looking forward to what this next year’s going to bring and we hope you are too!
