Broken Bellows was born in a van driving through the night somewhere in America. Before they were an alt-pop duo, Cory Brent and Will Prinzi were members of the pop punk band Reckless Serenade, who in the summer of 2016 had the grueling, amazing opportunity to play Vans Warped Tour. It was during the long drives from venue to venue in the middle of the night, while the rest of the band slept, that Cory and Will would keep themselves awake by making beats on the van stereo and singing hooks back and forth. These “sessions” would unknowingly culminate in the form of Broken Bellows’s first release The Card Table EP.
After Reckless Serenade had been catapulted into the national circuit, when the band was at its zenith and the stage was set to take over the country, the band imploded. From a shattered band, Broken Bellows rose with tenacity and a will to always keep the music alive, no matter the obstacles. While keeping honest to their pop punk roots, the pair was now free to explore endless genres, sounds, and emotions — armed with nothing more than a laptop, they had access to a whole universe of music-making right in their living room. After hearing the duo’s first songs, Fervor Records immediately signed Broken Bellows and released The Card Table EP on August 25, 2017. Since the birth of Broken Bellows, Cory and Will have been wildly writing, experimenting, and grooving nonstop from their New York apartment, and they are grateful and ready to share their music with the world. Their debut full-length I, Kaleidoscope promises to build upon the success of The Card Table and the songs are already seeing placements in shows such as Teen Mom and Just Add Magic. It will be released July 13 on Fervor Records.
