BROOMFILLER is Toronto, Canada’s answer to melodic punk rock. Blending melodic vocals, bass lines and rhythmic drumming with a very energetic live show, enables them to easily stand out. “The album kicks some serious ASS !! Full of great hooks and riffs!!” Trikeman69, Trike’s Trax BROOMFILLER began as a one-man band in Richard D. Leko’s parent’s basement, recording demos on his 4 track cassette recorder, while singing and playing all the instruments. “BROOMFILLER is proving that guitar driven Punk Rock is still alive and well” Matt Hartwick, Kingston Music Reviews After moving to Toronto, 3 albums were released: Watching the girls go bi (2002), Enter the Storm (2006), Third Stage Propellor Index (2015) with several Canadian & USA Tours in support of them. “damn easy to listen to…very tuneful and as catchy…” Mosh, The Moshville Times Compared to Foo Fighters holding hands with Millencolin and Bracket, while sitting on a park bench built by Jawbox & Husker Du, while eating a sandwich prepared by Bad Religion and washing it all down with a stiff drink mixed by Face to Face. “It’s tricky finding a balance between punk and musical, and BROOMFILLER does it well.” Bob Mersereau, The Top 100 Canadian Singles Recently awarded the FACTOR Demo Grant, BROOMFILLER recorded 3 songs which helped begin pre-production on new music for a new album possibly later this year.
