Video Premiere + Tour Dates : Jim Ward : Broken Songs

On August 2nd, Jim Ward (Sparta, At The Drive-In, Sleepercar) will release his official debut solo album, known as (deep breath, ‘caus it’s a mouthful) In The Valley, On The Shores The End Begins & The Electric Six. The record consists of 2 discs. In The Valley, On The Shores The End Begins brings together the tracks from the three acoustic EPs Ward has released sporadically since 2007, while The Electric Six provides the full-on electric treatment to six of the songs cherrypicked from those original EPs.

The acoustic version of the undeniably catchy lead single, Broken Songs, features Tegan Quin and was released in June. Here at MOKB, we’re mighty pleased to bring you the premiere of the video for the electrified version of Broken Songs, as visualized by director Zach Passero.
