Crunkcore haven't heard of it? Well now you have somewhat it's where crunk hip hop is combined with screaming vocals hence the combo "crunkcore" and no one does it better than Albuquerque, New Mexico act Brokencyde. Michael Shea one of the two vocalists decided to speak to me while they were on tour.

1. Can you tell me how the current tour went for everybody who's a part of it?

Michael: We just ended the tour with The Bunny The Bear & Nathan Ryan and it's been a ton of fun to share the stage with them as well as see our amazing fans!

2. What is your favorite song to play live (from any album)?

Michael: I personally love to perform Freaxxx, which is an oldie but goodie! The crowd's reaction to it whether it's 50 people or 500 is always a fun experience full of energy!!!!

 3. When it comes to a tour what part of the tour do you think your body is already tired and worn out?

Michael: Personally, the first day I am worn out. We leave every ounce of energy we have that day on stage!

4. What has been the most complicated venue you have performed at?

Michael: We are super fortunate to play every venue we have. They have all treated us very well.

 5. Is there any song that when you play it live on stage makes your adrenaline levels kick in and make you want to go hyper?

Michael: Skitzo usually seems to have this WILD energy that is different from any of our other songs. It zaps you full of adrenaline!

6. When it comes to performing each and every night does the time stand still or does it fly by when performing?

Michael: It's true when they say time flies by when you're having fun & that's exactly what our shows are.

7. Do you guys have any new music in the works?

Michael: We are half way done with our next full length album & are going to finish it up when we get back home. No details yet but I can safely say people will be VERY happy with it!

8. I want to know who was the one who sent me that personalized message of "Fuck You Love Brokencyde" was it the band?

Michael: It was "BREE" our mascot. He tends to party a little too hard & send intoxicated messages.

9. Tell me in a brief summary how the band came to be?

Michael: In 05 Mikl & Seven started to hang out & decided to try a song out & BC went from there.

10. Who was the one to come up with the band's name? You guys are called Brokencyde but where does B13 come from?

Michael: BC-Brokencyde 13- represents family to us = BC13.

11. Can you describe what "crunkcore" is? Why did you want to pick that genre as your musical choice?

Michael: We wanted to create something new & not follow a trend. We are proud to be different & wanted that in our music as well. CrunkCore is Crunk with a taste of screaming for that extra rush in a song.

12. This set also includes a DVD that contains 11 music videos is that your whole catalog of videos?

Michael: All of our music videos that we've done will come along with the "best of" CD. It has the infamous Freaxxx video all the way down to our collaboration video with Deuce for Never Back Down.

13. What are plans for the rest of this year?

Michael: We have a lot in the works. Brokencyde has been in the shadows for a bit but we are coming back extra hard with a new album, touring & many more surprises.

14. Anything else you want to add for your fans?

Michael: We want to thank our fans as they are the best fans any band/group could ask for. They are our fuel that keeps us going. Don't be afraid to be yourself & believe in yourself, you can make any dream come true! CxF
