 "One of the best new live bands in the country, it's a matter
of time before they explode onto the big stages."

- This Feeling

"These boys will be huge. Fact."
- Gig Slutz

Broken Witt Rebels recently released their new single Georgia Pine, on October 17th. Georgia Pine is the title track from their current EP, and the third single taken from the EP, following Low (Track of the Week on Radio X) and Guns (A-listed on Planet Rock and XS Radio Manchester).

They won "Best Rock Act" at the first annual Unsigned Music Awards held at The Troxy in London on Thursday 27th October.  The band closed the Awards ceremony by performing “Guns”. The band was also nominated for "Best Live Act".

The name ‘Georgia Pine’ comes from an old stoner reference ‘As high as a Georgia Pine’, but for the band the metaphor is more about their planned ascension to the top. It’s clear they haven’t come to make up the numbers.

A firm fans favourite, Georgia Pine sees Broken Witt Rebels showing their softer side, with Danny Core’s trademark howl melting hearts with the impassioned lyrics "You’re always there for me.”

The band invited fans to star in the video, submitting their fan photos and video clips. The video shot on smartphones, in partnership with mobile filming app Seenit, captures the incredible journey the band have been on, ever since their previous single Guns was featured on front page of YouTube.

The band have since amassed over 1m video plays and Guns became the 9th most shared and play-listed track on Spotify in the UK during July.  With major label deals now on the table, the future looks bright.

During the summer Broken Witt Rebels have packed out stages at The Isle of Wight, Latitude, Y Not, Tramlines and the Leeds Festival. Their relentless live schedule also includes shows at King Tuts, The Troxy and Dingwalls alongside much fancied Icelandic band Kaleo and a November tour with fellow blues rockers King King.

The plaudits continue, with the band selected to perform at October’s inaugural televised Unsigned Music Awards presented by Laura Whitmore and Radio 1s Chris Stark, where they won the "Best Rock Act" award.  They were also nominated for "Best Live Act".

In response to demand from fans, the band have announced plans to sell a limited edition 10" vinyl edition of the Georgia Pine EP exclusively at live shows. All 5 tracks will be remastered especially for the release, and will be available for pre-order from the band’s website from 3rd November.

Georgia Pine is the new 5-track EP from the British rock band everyone's talking about; "Broken Witt Rebels".

After delivering outstanding performances in 2015, the energetic, young 4-piece, who hail from Birmingham, are now looking to win over a new legion of fans with their infectious blend of rebellious rock and soulful blues.

Georgia Pine is authentic, rootsy, and real, and radiates hit potential.  Similarly to the new generation of contemporary and distinctive soulful roots rock bands like Alabama Shakes and Black Keys, the four piece band from Birmingham definitely strikes a chord.

BWR pays homage to the sounds of old blues and Stax guitarists, however, their direct approach to song writing and recording gives the EP a fresh and exciting sound. 

The 5-track EP was engineered and produced by Tom Gittins, who has worked on recent recordings by Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin). Gittins cites the Rebels’ lead singer, Danny Core, as an amazing vocal talent in the tradition of Steve Marriot and Joe Cocker – a distinctive heart-wrenching vocal style that’s steeped deep within the inner core of blues and soul.

With crunching riffs and soulful vocals, the five songs have energy and drive that are the warning signs of something mighty big and beautiful.

2015 saw Danny Core (vocals, guitar), Luke Davis (vocals, bass guitar), James Dudley(drums) and James Tranter (vocals, lead guitar) play at the Camden Rocks Festival in London, as well as two Time Out London concerts including The Time Out Best of Rising Stars 2015 at London’s sold out Jazz Café.

Broken Witt Rebels have been featured on Richer Unsigned as Artist of the Week for 2016; as well as The Fred Perry subculture Spotify Playlist as The Ones to Watch for 2016, recommended by This Feeling who tipped Catfish & the Bottle Men 2013, Bohicas 2014, and Blossoms 2015.

The lead single Shake Me Down from their previous EP received over 113,000 streams on Soundcloud. This has earned the band coverage on numerous blogs including Fred Perry, hillydilly and Indie Shuffle. Following its position at the top of the Hype Machine chart, the song was also featured as Classic Rock magazine’s Track of the Week.

On 27th October 2016, the band won the "Best Rock Act" award at the first ever Unsigned Music Awards, held at The Troxy in East London. The official music video for the band’s single Guns has attracted 460,568 YouTube views to date.

'After rip roaring sets and sold out gigs, this Birmingham quartet has really arrived, combining the power and intensity of classic rock with the finesse and delicacy of soulful blues.' - Gigging

‘Fact! Broken Witt Rebels will make you want to crack open a bottle of whiskey. You’ve been warned. The band’s sound channels a nostalgic Memphis sound with gritty vocals, crazy guitars and sing-along chorus’ - Counteract Magazine

‘Blues sodden, sultry, humid music displaying all the solidity of a British rock legacy merged with confidence of an atmospheric Deep South soulful Americana’ - Black Soda
