Jan. 14 — Stone Broken will release its new album this spring.
The band is scheduled to release its third album, Revelation April 15 through Spinefarm Records. In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted the album’s title track/lead single and its companion video Friday.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Revelation’ is a change of pace for Stone Broken from its existing works. Where the band’s existing works take the band in more of a straight forward rock and roll approach, this song is more comparable to works from the likes of Muse and Imagine Dragons what with its edge and infectious groove. At the same time, there is still some similarity to works from Theory of a Deadman.
Front man Rich Moss talked about the change in the band’s sound in its new song and its album in a prepared statement.
“We had a completely different approach on this record compared to our previous records,” said Moss. “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 [drummer] Robyn now having more vocal duties across the whole record. It really works well and brings a whole new dynamic to our songs.”
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the album’s release date and the premiere of the new single and video. Looking through the lyrics provided with the video, the theme comes across as something of a social commentary.
The ‘Revelation’ video finds the band performing its new single on a soundstage. Meanwhile, Ross plays the part of what seems to be a patient/prisoner in a hospital setting trying to get out. Just as he thinks he has escaped his captors, the video ends with a surprise that will not be revealed here.
