No Broadcast


No Broadcast, a three-piece band formerly known as Anthesiac, move post rock and alternative rock into a dynamic powerhouse of sound, reminiscent of fellow New Zealand bands HDU, Kerretta and Jakob. Their music is surpassed only by the live experience.

Established in Christchurch, NZ in 2007, as Josh Braden (vocals, guitar), Sam Hood (bass), and Chris Self (drums), the three chaps formed a strong musical chemistry that is increasingly rare in bands today. Priding themselves on their ability to instinctively move their music where it wants to go, the group make for a live act audiences can't take their eyes off.

No Broadcast have gigged extensively over the past 5 years, playing various festivals and shows around the country with a variety of other local and national artists. They have played alongside rockers Beastwars, post-punk heavyweights Die! Die! Die! as well as supporting Mountaineater (former HDU members) and internationally renounced six-piece An Emerald City on the South Island leg of their 2011 New Zealand tour.

Amongst the many gigs, the band released their first EP, Null and Void, in the spring of 2011. The release was well received in the press and garnered glowing reviews and airplay on nationwide radio. The E.P was recorded by frontman Josh Braden in his own garage turned recording space before being sent to be mixed and mastered by Dunedin’s prestigious Dale Cotton. The CD sleeves for the E.P were all handmade and printed by the band themselves giving the overall package a handcrafted appeal.

In 2012 the band began work on a body of work which would become their first full-length album under the name No Broadcast, a name taken from the title of a track off the Null and Void EP. 2013 the band kept behind the scenes but the name did make it overseas as Josh Braden spent some time in the UK with a handful of shows in London and Bristol. A release of B-sides recordings appeared online during this time under the title 1736.

As 2014 appeared, so did the release of the anticipated self-titled album, self-produced with an excellent showcase of songs coming together that critics couldn't help be impressed by. Looking to prepare themselves for new opportunities and touring after the album's release, Kieran Colina stepped in on bass guitar, his dedication and excitement matching the rest of the band. Two New Zealand tours saw the album reach even the smallest parts of the country. The band continued playing around the country while recording their second album titled The Blueprint, released 18th Dec 2015.
