24 August 2014
Following their hugely successful shows at Sheffield Plug and Montgomery Hall in Wath-Upon Dearn, the band have returned to their writing quarters for the forthcoming second album.
The Broken Saints will be supporting british folk rock band The Dunwells at The Plug in Sheffield on Satruday 5th April.
Tickets are £10 through the bands Facebook page so drop them a line NOW!
2013 was a great year for The Broken Saints. Everything appeared to fall into place naturally allowing the band to grow and develop at their own pace. The band have been working on new material and slowly easing in the new member. Yes, you heard correctly, another new member, Craig Went on Bass completing the full sound Ryan, John and Steve had one day hoped for. Keep checking the usual outlets for more developments over the next month or so.
A new internet TV station called The People's Voice launched in November where the band were invited to perform on its weekly music programme called 'The Banned'. Ryan, John and Steve performed Searching for the shore and Dreams Never die before being interviewed by its host, Gareth Icke. They were also asked to partake in their regular challenge of writing a song based on a random theme. Make sure you tune in at 10pm towards the end of January. More details will be posted later. In the meantime, check out the channel on www.thepeoplesvoice.tv
Well, what an amazing few weeks it's been. The band have performed their latest shows with an extended line-up. Featuring Dave Fong on percussion, Christina Lloyd on violin and Katy McLaughlin on vocals. Expect to see a lot more of this in the new year.

Congratulations to KID CONVENTIONAL. Winner of the Yorkshire unplugged competition. There was a great atmosphere at The Forum playing to a full house. The Broken Saints came a painfully close second.
21st May - NEW MEMBER!
We're absolutely thrilled to announce that pianist Steven Kay is now a permanent member of The Broken Saints. He's worked with both Ryan and John many times over the years including their new album and recently performed a few live dates with them. The chemistry between all three has always been strong and so when asked to join permanently there was no hesitation.
