More info on Dead Broke, via official release:
Since their 2016 debut High Hopes, they’ve been tested by just about every obstacle imaginable: navigating substance abuse, internal romantic break-ups, health issues, and a former record label that nearly tanked them, while having nothing to their name except the band that’s kept them together. Overcoming this all, the band sacrificed a lot to get Dead Broke made – they even sold their long-time van (and 5th member) Herb.
The 13-track album dives into more egregious aspects of being a rock band, and humans at large – witnessing your idols abuse their positions of power, financial uncertainty, struggling with mental health/trauma, familial separation, and heartbreak… all while being dead broke.
