Stone Broken Announce Signing With Spinefarm Records + UK Headline Tour





STONE BROKEN SIGN WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH SPINEFARM RECORDS


Stone Broken embark on a fresh chapter in their career having now joined forces with Spinefarm Records on a global basis; the first fruits of this new deal will be second studio album, ‘Ain’t Always Easy’, set for release on March 2nd 2018.

‘Ain’t Always Easy’ – produced & mixed by Romesh Dodangoda at Long Wave Recording Studios in South Wales – sees the UK rockers further honing their innate ability to match musical and emotional weight to truly telling effect; the vision is broad, the song-writing skillful, the riffs ‘n’ choruses both memorable and mighty.

Lead single/lyric video ‘Worth Fighting For’ – due for worldwide release on November 17th – sets the tone for what’s to come, bristling with energy and ambition, making it clear that the musicians are fully prepared for what lies ahead.

Indeed, since the release of their ‘All In Time’ debut (2016), also helmed by Dodangoda, the four – Rich Moss (vocals / guitar), Chris Davis (lead guitar / vocals), Kieron Conroy (bass / vocals) and Robyn Haycock (drums) – have been fully occupied building their career and establishing the Stone Broken brand from their West Midlands base. Along the way, they’ve forged a close bond with their fast-growing fan-base (‘The Broken Army’), attracted strong media support (especially from Planet Rock, who are presenting the headline tour next year), and notched up impressive live achievements in the UK and Europe, including tours with Glenn Hughes and Living Colour, plus appearances at this year’s Download and Ramblin’ Man Fair, opening the main stage at the latter.


Says Spinefarm Records UK Head of A&R, Dante Bonutto: “Who doesn’t like big, driving riffs and massive choruses?! It’s easy to be impressed with Stone Broken on a musical basis alone – at last, a UK band with the sound and the attitude to make it possible for them to compete with rock’s elite names, most of them US-based. Add to this a down-to-earth approach with a dedicated work ethic, and you have a group whose career is already proceeding at pace. We’re hitting the ground running here, and given the close relationship that already exists between audience and band, I’m sure that the Stone Broken / Spinefarm axis will pave the way for a seriously exciting future.”





Over the next few months, Stone Broken will be appearing at select UK festivals – including Planet Rockstock and Winter’s End, where they occupy headlining slots – supported by a digital re-issue of ‘All In Time’ via Spinefarm on November 17th (an expanded version on CD and vinyl follows in August 2018– previously the album has only been available online and at SB shows).

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…

DESERT STORM Announce New Album 'Sentinels'

DESERT STORM ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'SENTINELS'
TO BE RELEASED MARCH 16TH ON APF RECORDS!
2018 marks the return of Oxford-based sludge-metal titans Desert Storm as they prepare to follow the release of 2014’s critically-acclaimed ‘Omniscient’ album with their new opus ‘Sentinels’, confirmed for release this coming March 16th via APF Records.


Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.


“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”



Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in …
