It's official - rock is back! - The Broken Chords return to The London Tattoo Convention Sept 2016 to rock the hell out to Tobacco Dock!
The Broken Chords initial studio work, notably 2014 their debut single 'Get Some' was greatly welcomed across the media and airwaves, including regular airplay on BBC Radio, Amazing Radio, Shoreditch Radio, Classic Rock and myriad internet rock sites. A second batch of tracks followed on from this with the blazing Paul Tipler produced 'Rock & Stone EP' in April 2015.
This signalled a new progression for the band, a more mature sound with a harder edge. Anthemic title track ‘Rock & Stone’ rightfully made the Classic Rock Magazine on-line videos of the week which led the band to the attention of Universal UK and Sony Music as well as a host of international A&R’s, just in time for the release of their last single, 'The First & Only Kind’/ ‘I Do Believe' (Oct 15).
2016 brings a busy start for the boys with the release of their new self-titled EP ‘Broken Chords’. Showcasing a natural progression in sound and song writing, this EP really sets the band apart from the others. This record brings you everything you’d expect from a great rock band, and so much more.
Opening track, ‘I Do Believe is a dark blues fuelled kickback to the sound of the 70’s. Stadium worthy, ‘Tell Them Of Us’ highly defines what Broken Chords are really about. The lowdown, dirty licks of ‘Wild Child’ with its underground grit, really hits you with the essence of true rock & roll. ‘First & Only Kind’ is just effortlessly classic through and through. You don’t need fancy words to describe a sound that speaks for itself, and that’s simply what this EP does.
Melodic axe riffs, seasoned, dramatic vocals and relentless exuberance has propelled Broken Chords from their local music scene to headline shows across the UK and a year of national touring, including academy supports for the legendary Bernie Torme (Gillan, Ozzie Osbourne), Kyshera, Temperance Movement and Australian rockers Electric Mary (O2 Academy). This was hotly followed by headline appearances at Hard Rock Hell Helloween and Hard Rock Hell Ibiza, two shows at The Great Escape, Camden Rocks Festival, and the jewel in the crown, a full electric slot at Download Festival 2015 courtesy of Live Nation.
Welcome back lads we can’t wait to see you at The One & only International London Tattoo Convention 2016.
