Stone Broken have today released “Black Sunrise”, the second single from their forthcoming album, Revelation. You can watch the song’s official video below.
According to Stone Broken frontman, Rich Moss, “Black Sunrise explores the darker side of portrayal.” Rich continues, “Sometimes people only want to show a certain side of themselves, maybe even an exaggerated version or completely fictitious personality…the truth is, it’s going to be hard to keep up the act. The mental impact will ultimately take its toll. This is where the title stems from; a “Black Sunrise” doesn’t exist, it’s the opposite of reality.”
Stone Broken will release their dynamic new studio album, Revelation, via Spinefarm on April 15, 2022. Born from a desire to push themselves into new realms of musical creativity, Revelation sees the band storming into rock’s big leagues.
Having partnered with award-winning producer and former SikTh guitarist, Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Holding Absence, Bury Tomorrow) back in early 2019, both artist and producer hit it off right from the get-go. Working remotely with Weller between Walsall and London, the band shared lots of new ideas, experimenting with aspects of electronic sound design and fusing different strands of their more straight-ahead hard rock with darker electro elements – something front man, Rich Moss, and drummer/ backing vocalist Robyn Haycock, had long wanted to try.
Revelation, then, is an album both for Stone Broken fans and for the band themselves. And between the enforced COVID break and these exhilarating new elements they’ve incorporated into their music, the band and their Broken Army are ready to take on the world!
Rich Moss, adds: “We had a completely different approach on this record compared to our previous records, we wanted to try everything, we wanted to experiment, we wanted to build our sound from the ground up and totally re-imagine the ‘Stone Broken Sound’, BUT without losing what we already had. It wasn’t easy, not in the slightest, but we managed to break down a few walls to get there, and along the way had some awesome discoveries, like Robyn now having more vocal duties across the whole record, it really works well and brings a whole new dynamic to our songs.”
