BROKEN NOSE

Broken Nose is a six piece skacore / reggae / punk band from the depths of Bridgend, South Wales. Although the band formed way back in 2003, it is the release of their debut full-length album ‘No Compromise’ that has earned them the moniker, ‘The New Face of Ska-core’. 

Since the band’s formation, Broken Nose have supported some of the circuit’s biggest names, such as Adequate Seven, Sonic Boom 6, Streetlight Manifesto and Howard’s Alias, to name a few. Despite being veterans of the South Wales scene, on a National scale Broken Nose remained under the radar for over six years, while they honed their songwriting and performance skills.

The band released several EPs over the years, but it wasn’t until the completion of their debut album ‘No Compromise’ in 2010, that they finally reached the sound that they had been striving for. ‘No Compromise’ was entirely self-produced, which gave the band the opportunity to work relentlessly; painstakingly listening to each detail in order to create a unique, genre-defying album, which has received widespread critical acclaim from journalists and fans alike.Since the release of ‘No Compromise’, Broken Nose is beginning to get the recognition that the band have been working for all these years.

The band began regularly appearing on some impressive line-ups around the UK, including a support slot with one of their major influences – Big D and the Kids Table, at The Underworld in Camden. Since then, Broken Nose opened 2010’s Ska Trek: The Next Generation Tour, with Anti Vigilante and fellow South Wales ska rockers, Dirty Revolution.
