GEARS are set to release their newest single titled ‘Fix What’s Broken’ this Friday (March 24th). When I say that GEARS is a band that takes things to the extreme, I think I always get misinterpreted. I don’t mean metal up your ass and djent in your face. I mean the quality and composition of the music and being in tune with their individual and collective musicianship. GEARS is a band that functions as a singular unit.
Having said that, ‘Fix What’s Broken’ is a moving forward of momentum of what is the music itself. The groove is in the pocket and the meaning is focused and felt. This song hits you in the feels gently while banging that drum beater against your eardrums. Melody has never sounded so fierce and angst has never sounded so melodic. This is music for musicians as much as it is for the masses. Anthemic attitude for the everyday generation.

Rock needs reinvention. It only moves forward when a band pushes it do so. Enter GEARS. Finding a sweet spot between metal, R&B, hip-hop, and alternative, the Miami, FL group—Jimmy Wooten [drums] and Trip Six [vocals] —zigs and zags past all expectations and burns down one convention after another in the process. Racking up hundreds of thousands of streams and views, collaborating with everyone from members of Living Colour to Sevendust, and receiving plugs from Metal Insider and more, they usher in a new era of rock with a series of singles and their forthcoming independent debut album. “There’s something for everyone,” observes Jimmy. “It’s heavy”.
It’s soulful. It’s melodic. The band’s versatility is our strength. We’ll bring R&B and hip-hop into rock, but we’re doing it in our own tight and cohesive way.” GEARS initially began to grind back in 2014. New York native Trip wound up in Florida and met fellow Northeast transplant Jimmy. Bonding over shared influences such as Prince, Alice In Chains, Deftones, and more, they carefully carved out a singular style.
