Futurebirds Release New Single, "My Broken Arm"
Futurebirds have released their new single, “My Broken Arm” ahead of their tour kickoff and headlining show in Denver at The Bluebird Theater tonight. Listen to the track now below and grab tickets to the show while they’re still available HERE.
"My Broken Arm is a song I (Thomas) actually wrote over 10 years ago. The song is essentially about being frustrated by having to support a music career with shitty jobs that don't pay much, and spending all your time working and none of that time making music, and realizing you could be a hell of a lot happier with less money and more time to do the things you really love. Things that drive you. It's a vicious cycle that lots of musicians have to deal with."
"We recorded a version of 'My Broken Arm' with a different band we (Carter, Brannen, and our original drummer Payton) were in called "the Interns," but never ended up doing too much with it. We always thought it would be a good fit on a Futurebirds album, but never got around to re-recording it until the sessions for our upcoming album, Teamwork. Teamwork will hit your ears this fall......Thanks to our fans everywhere."
- Thomas Johnson
