Brokencyde (stylized brokeNCYDE) is an American crunkcore musical group from Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded in 2006. The group’s lineup consists of David “Se7en” Gallegos and Michael “Mikl” Shea, and musically are one of the founding groups in the crunkcore genre, which (in general description) is crunk hip-hop with screamed vocals.
In 2012, Brokencyde played dates on the “Fight to Unite Tour” alongside other acts including Blood on the Dance Floor, Deuce (formerly of Hollywood Undead), Polkadot Cadaver, William Control and The Bunny the Bear. On October 29, 2012, Julian “Phat J” McClellan announced via his official YouTube page that he was leaving Brokencyde to pursue a solo career, however they are still on good terms.
In December 2014, Brokencyde launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, seeking US$30,000 to help fund the recording and marketing of a new album. By the time the funding period ended in February 2015, the band only managed to raise US$1,421 from 33 backers — less than 5% of their intended goal.
