THE SECOND STUDIO ALBUM, ‘AIN’T ALWAYS EASY’, OUT 15th MAY 2018 (VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS)
NEW UK & IRISH LIVE SHOWS ANNOUNCED INCLUDING HEADLINE SLOT AT STEELHOUSE FESTIVAL (SOUTH WALES)
NEW SINGLE, ‘HEARTBEAT AWAY,’ OUT NOW - ADDRESSES THE REALITIES OF DOMESTIC ABUSE
Stone Broken will release their second studio album, Ain’t Always Easy, on May 15th 2018 (on Spinefarm Records).
The new album was produced & mixed by Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Bring Me The Horizon, Twin Atlantic) at Long Wave Recording Studios in South Wales.
The West Midlands band have also unveiled a brand new single, ‘Heartbeat Away’ (taken from the forthcoming album). ‘Heartbeat Away’ is a deeply personal song for Stone Broken front-person and lyricist, Rich Moss; the single tackles the subject of domestic abuse, suggesting that the realities need to be discussed more openly and addressed immediately.
Moss says: “The subject of ‘Heartbeat Away’ is a little closer to home than most of the other songs I have written… seeing the impact that domestic violence has on a person you are close to and the way it affects the people around them isn’t a very nice thing to experience. I thought it was time to shine a light on something that usually happens behind closed doors, hidden away from the rest of the world. When people listen to this song I think they will know that it’s personal and that I mean every word.”
