  BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART PREMIERE VIDEO FOR 'ROCKIN' ALL NIGHT'
27th June 2012

blessed by a broken heart



International glam-rock consortium Blessed By A Broken Heart are pleased to let fans know that the rock stops for no clock with the premiere of their new video for boisterous track 'Rockin' All Night'. The video marks the band's second from their latest album, 'Feel The Power' - released earlier this year on Rude Records.

Directed by the acclaimed Robby Starbuck, 'Rockin' All Night' perfectly encapsulates Blessed By A Broken Heart - a pulse-raising blast of glammed-up Metal which has been praised by critics for embracing the glorious shred Metal of the 80s while still offering something singularly fun, inventive and sharply relevant for today. Released just in time for summer, the song is the perfect toast to motorcycles, all-night parties and glory days.

The follow-up to the band's celebrated 2008 album 'Pedal To The Metal' (Century Media), 'Feel The Power' finds Blessed By A Broken Heart shrugging off Metalcore trappings in favour of something more heartfelt. "The whole band is still obsessed with the 80s, and that's bled into our lifestyles. It's not just when we're on tour: We all kind of dress 80s; we still have mullets. It's become part of our lives," explains singer Tony Gambino.

Like any artist with a notable body of work, Blessed has experienced a near constant evolution over the past eight years, in some part due to lineup changes, but mostly due to a stylistic progression away from pure Metalcore in favour of more traditional Metal and hard rock.

One listen to 'Feel The Power' confirms that not only is this not the same band that recorded 'All Is Fair', but that that very fact is their saving grace. Staying ahead of the curve and distancing themselves from the pack is the key to Blessed By A Broken Heart's longevity, and the reason the new album will resonate with even the most veteran headbangers.




NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
