Broadfield Marchers

about us

Broadfield Marchers, from Louisville, KY, were formed by brothers Mark and Dustin Zdobylak in 2000. They recruited childhood friend Justin Carter on drums and began recording songs immediately on their 8-track cassette player.

Merging the clipped-buzzsaw riffs of mod acts like The Who and the Creation with the angelic harmonies of the Wilson brothers and Big Star, the Broadfield Marchers attracted the attention of the indie label Secretly Canadian in 2005. A two-year relationship resulted with the release of their debut album "When the Lifted Connive". 300 hand-numbered vinyl records were pressed and gained positive reviews in major magazines like Mojo, Magnet, and Arthur (which Thurston Moore put in his top records of '06).

In 2008, the Broadfield Marchers then signed with established New York City label Rainbow Quartz for the release of their second full-length "The Inevitable Continuing". Sticking with their DIY aesthetic and succinct attitude towards song length, they crammed 19 songs in 42 minutes — in the process, creating a "melodic mini-masterpiece for the huddled masses" (Amplifier). The album again received favorable reviews in the press and ended up on some Best of 2008 lists.

They delivered their third full-length record "Displayed in Reflections" on Rainbow Quartz in the fall of 2009 and again made many Top Ten lists for '09 and got critical acclaim in UNCUT and R2 British magazines as well as in the states. Making repeat appearances at major festivals like SXSW and CMJ, the Broadfield Marchers continue to spread their love of psych-pop songs that burn with real sincerity and craftsmanship.

Longtime friend and collaborator Barry Edward King rounded out the lineup in 2013 after returning from overseas endeavors, and new music has been recorded and ready to be released for some time. The band is always writing and recording and more than eager to get their next release out to fresh ears.
