Sydney alternative metal band Broken Earth have found their flame on new single “BLACK SKIES“, a ferocious indictment on Australia’s power sources.
Inspired by the inaction taken by the Liberal government during the wake of the 2019 and 2020 bushfires, “BLACK SKIES” acts as a reminder, as well as a warning, of the fury that is growing from those affected by the state of power and those who abuse it.
Mixed, mastered and recorded from the depths of 2021 with Mark Williamson of Keywork Audio (Inertia, Revoid), “BLACK SKIES” was inspired by the 2019 bushfires and the negligence from Australian power. “We still remember driving home under smoke, and waking up every day under a burnt orange/red sky that gradually darkened,” explains the band. “We can’t help but feel like that was a taste of things to come, especially as we see more and more violations across the globe of corrupt leadership ruining the lives of millions. In the end, nobody is safe, we must be the ones to act, or we will all burn in the consequences.”
On Friday June 24 Broken Earth will join Traces on their headline show at The Burdekin Hotel in Sydney, where the band will launch their new single live. Tickets available via Eventbrite.
