Sydney’s alternative metalcore outfit Broken Earth are today unleashing their brand new single Dance in The Dark as the first taste of new material in over a year. Grater is proud to bring you the exclusive premiere for Australia.
Vocalist Raphael Smith said the track is about the band’s perception of the current state of the world and their motivation to persevere through the darkest of times.
“In the wake of the recent global events occurring, what was originally a song about feeling like the world is collapsing has unfortunately turned into quite a sombre state of affairs.
“We’ve seen systematic failure from the highest level and it has left the general populace feeling scared and paralysed.
“The events we’re currently facing are probably some of the toughest we’ve seen on a global scale in a long time, and there isn’t much of an end in sight.
“The rage that we feel is almost matched with the despair, but we can’t let feelings of powerlessness overcome us.
“So with that being said, we would love to be able to share this song as a message of hope and perseverance, that even in the darkest times, you can still find someone or something that holds you close – Dance In The Dark with us.”
Dance In The Dark is produced, mixed and mastered by Christopher Vernon (Belle Haven) and engineered by Darcy Handley (Terra) with additional drum engineering by Declan White.
Broken Earth in its current form is Raphael Smith (vocals), Brendan Brendkins (clean vocals), Ben Robinson (guitar/vocals) and Daniel Trott (guitar).
The four-piece has been climbing the ranks since formation just over a year ago and have already played with BLKLST, Pridelands, Isotopes, ATLVS, Reliqa and many more.
Dance in The Dark is available on March 27 digitally.
