Everything's Ok on the new music front

Rejuvenated Ok Broken have hit the ground running this gig season with new music and plenty of places to make sure it's going to be heard.

The Oldham three piece have built on the success of their self-funded singles Dying Soul, Waiting in Line and Debts & Dear Do’s with a trio of new releases - One More Time, This World Owes You and Ground Control.

Gaz Wright (vocals and guitar), Phil McArdle (bass) and Alex Whitehead (drums) make up the band.

With a strong flavour of US and UK indie, Ok Broken’s sound has a vast range of influences from heavy rock to R&B.

The group have enjoyed huge gigs from London to Leeds O2 in the past, and have also landed a sponsorship from major mod clothing retailer Lambretta.

They are well-placed going into this gig season, with Blackpool on September 1, Oldham’s St Mary’s Festival on September 8, and two more shows next month, including the Sonder festival.

In October they will light up the Manchester Ska Foundation Debbie Goodman charity event on the 14th and Manchester venue Aatma on November 17.

Gaz said: "There is always more to come with us we are working very hard behind the scenes just to bring more and more to our loyal supporters, so keep your eyes peeled.”
