Badass grooves, pristine instrumentation, untouchable freestyles, unmatched novelty and sold out clubs. Check the resume.


Broken Tongues is an innovative, six-piece, alternative hip-hop band based in Denver, CO. At times muscular in their tone, at others soulful and refined, The Tongues craft a singular, live-instrumental style, born from years of musical study, collaboration and performance. The result is a genre-bending alchemy, giving novel insight into evolving trends within live and alternative music.

Brothers/producers Mike and Zach Warkentin founded Broken Tongues in 2008, quickly solidifying the group’s lineup with talented and professional Colorado musicians. Broken Tongues is currently recording its new studio album, while continuing to gig in and around Denver.
