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).

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
