BROKEN LINKS set loose melodic engulfing alternative rock that is dark, evocative, and compelling. Packed with moody guitars lines, poignant vocals and electronic soundscapes, the Brit rock combo will release their superb third album, Conflict::States, on Friday 30th April. The band have also just dropped their blistering new single and video, Replicas – https://youtu.be/Mr8dUGKj2ZQ.
Initially taking influences from a range of areas planning from the Manic Street Preachers, Depeche Mode, and Nine Inch Nails to The Chemical Brothers and Massive Attack, BROKEN LINKS have fastidiously created a hugely unique sound that is crammed with integrity and is absolutely all-conquering. The three piece consist of Mark Lawrence (Vocals/Guitars), Lewis Betteridge (Bass), and Phil Boulter (Drums), and hail from Eastleigh. Ever since their formation in 2008, the threesome have constantly pushed boundaries, striving with considerably success to produce new pathways and possibilities for their ever-evolving sound.
BROKEN LINKS have built a remarkable 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 blistering new album, Conflict::States. The record is an angry statement aimed at the present plight of the world. Mark Lawrence (Vocals & Guitars) illuminates: “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 thrilling combination of goth-electro, post-punk, and pop-rock that takes the listener on a formidable aural experience.
