SPB exclusive: Go White Bronco - Population: Ghost Town

Scene Point Blank is premiering Population: Ghost Town, the first full-length from longtime Long Island collaborative group Go White Bronco. The new record is set to release on May 6 on 86d Records and the nine song affair includes the addition of bass and percussion since their last 7” came out in 2011.

The current line-up features members of Iron Chic, Fellow Project, Ancient Tongue, Splurge, and more. This band, however, is more roots focused: soft, quiet, and focused on living paycheck-to-paycheck.
