BROOMFILLER is Toronto, Canada's answer to melodic punk rock. Having been compared to the melodic punk rock sounds of Bad Religion, Face to Face, Millencolin, Husker Du, Foo Fighters, and Bracket, (to name a few), their heavy melodic punk alternative sound, with melodic vocals, soothing bass lines and rhythmic drumming is a blend of music, style and performance which enables them to truly stand out.
"An extremely talented band from Canada, with great melodies and a hint of mod. I like the band's style, the singer's voice is really good." Neal (Punkmusic.com)
No stranger to touring, BROOMFILLER's extensive past tour history proves they work hard. They toured across Canada supporting their last album "Watching the girls go bi" for 6 weeks in the summer of 2002 with great success, toured Eastern Canada for 2 weeks in October 2003, completed a month long Eastern US / Florida Tour in March 2004, as well as a 2 week Eastern Canadian Tour in July 2004.
