Broken Teeth on tour; new album


“AC/DC don’t really have to make a great album anymore because Austin’s Broken Teeth are making them for ‘em.”

Austin rockers Broken Teeth will be wasting no time ringing in 2007 in the only way they know – on the road. The band will be taking a break from recording their third album tentatively titled Electric to head out to the West Coast to bring fans a taste of some of the new songs. Broken Teeth recently struck a new distribution deal with Corporate Punishment Records, which is distributed by Navarre. The new deal will ensure that fans all over the country will be able sink their teeth into Electric when it hits stores later this year. Fans will also be able to hear Broken Teeth on the debut edition of XM Radio’s new show The Breaking Bones Hour on The Boneyard Channel which debuts January 7.

As Broken Teeth won "Best Metal Band" of 2005 in the Austin Chronicle Awards during the annual SXSW Music Conference, they hit an increasingly prolific stride in their career thanks to their live release Blood On the Radio and its accompanying DVD. Broken Teeth’s live set has been injected with new songs that lean into an upper pace reaching for more Judas Priest/Motorhead style power with tracks that are slated for Electric coming in 2007 such as "Bonfire", “Blood on the Radio,” “Bullets & Booze,” “Roll Over” and “Electric.” As David Beeson and fellow guitarist Jared Tuten tackle the crackle of the hard-bitten Broken Teeth front man and resident screamer Jason McMaster (ex-Dangerous Toys), bassist Brett McCormick, banging Bruce Rivers (drums) culminate the band’s sound and continue to unleash brass-knuckle knockouts in your scene, and beyond.

With the new album in the works and new distribution fans can be sure that things are looking up for Broken Teeth and that 2007 will be opening a new and sure to rockin’ chapter for the band.
