After selling thousands of copies of their self-titled debut album and drawing sales from around the globe, The Better World teamed up with Grammy award-winner Jason Corsaro (Soundgarden, Buckcherry) to record “Broken Memories”. Mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, U2, Creed), “Broken Memories” captures the intensity of the Foo Fighters and the heart-felt melodies of 3 Doors Down and Lifehouse to form a powerful, hard-hitting album of shout out loud rock songs. Hailing from Bergen County, New Jersey, the band has gained recognition for their energetic live shows and unforgettable hooks. They have sold out top NYC venues and continue to play to packed houses at well known area hot spots such as The Bitter End, Highline Ballroom and Maxwell's. In September 2009, The Better World won the “Next Big Thing” contest on AlternativeAddiction.com and was given the band spotlight feature for that entire month. AA also named TBW one of the Top 20 Unsigned Bands of 2009 and promoted their single “Counting The Days”, which became the website’s Number 1 song download for 9 straight weeks. Nationally, TBW placed 3rd out of 2000 bands in the Taylor Guitar Test-Drive competition. The band also placed 3rd out of 200 bands in New York City’s Meany Fest competition. Most recently, "It's Alright" has been featured in the movie, "The Hit List", featuring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Cole Hauser. The Better World is currently touring in support of “Broken Memories” and have begun writing new material for their next E.P.
