Broken Road is the second single from the debut album by Melbourne indie/alt folk outfit Tomas Strode & The Tour Guides. Drawing on influence from bands such as Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons, Feist, The Swell Season and Boy & Bear, Tomas Strode & The Tour Guides showcase their own unique blend of alt folk with sophisticated production, rich arrangements and engaging lyrics. Broken Road features a vocal arrangement performed by Melbourne based a cappella trio Aluka. Broken Road was produced and recorded by Myles Mumford (The Tiger & Me, Georgia Fields) at Pughouse Studios and mastered by Adam Dempsey (Owl Eyes, Jordie Lane). Tomas Strode & The Tour Guides, comprising of Tomas Strode (vocals/guitar), Amy Tankard (vocals/percussion), Joshua Stainer (vocals/guitar), Michael Proposch (piano), Andrew West (bass) and Monique Zucco (vocals/drums), formed while studying a Bachelor of Music in Melbourne and came together as a six piece in 2012 to record their debut album and release their debut EP The Cat & The Fiddle. On Wednesday March 27 Tomas Strode & The Tour Guides play at The Workers Club with an expanded nine piece band to release Broken Road, with support from Rob Sawyer and Domini Forster. Tickets are available at the door with a copy of the single, doors open at 7:30pm.
