Broken Links are set to release their new album titled ‘Conflict::States’ on April 30th. Filled with powerful riffs and a sound that transcends the obvious audience, Broken Links delve into dark realms and gritty worlds with a melodic thunder worthy of any device it is played on.
The atmosphere of each song is as distinct as it is distant. Beauty in the darkness and dystopian in the hooks and harmony. This is the guilty pleasure for the disillusioned.
About Broken Links
Broken Links express melodic and hook laden alternative rock that is dark, haunting and potent. Loaded with atmospheric guitars, melancholic vocals and electronic soundscapes. Originally drawing influences from an assortment of areas stretching from the Manic Street Preachers, Depeche Mode, and Nine Inch Nails to The Chemical Brothers and Massive Attack, Broken Links have meticulously formulated a hugely unique sound that is stacked with integrity and is utterly all-conquering.
The three piece consist of Mark Lawrence (Vocals/Guitars), Lewis Betteridge (Bass), and Phil Boulter (Drums), and hail from Eastleigh, UK. Since their inception in 2008, the threesome have constantly pushed boundaries, endeavouring with much success to create new pathways and avenues for their ever-evolving sound.
Broken Links have built a formidable and loyal fanbase following the self-release of three EPs and two albums, and by playing shows with the likes of British Sea Power, The Boxer Rebellion, InMe, My Vitriol, and The Chameleons in the UK, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, and Italy.
This year, Broken Links return with their fiery new album, Conflict::States. The album is an angry declaration aimed at the current state of the world. Mark Lawrence (Vocals & Guitars) explains: “People are living in a world where they think they have choices. There are no choices. We’re on borrowed time. This album is a statement of awareness to all the shit holding society back.” From top to bottom, the album is a heady fusion of goth-electro, post-punk, and pop-rock that takes the listener on a powerful aural experience.
