Spinefarm Records UK Head of A&R, Dante Bonutto tells us:

"Who doesn't like big, driving riffs and massive choruses? It's easy to be impressed with Stone Broken on a musical basis alone – at last, a UK band with the sound and the attitude to make it possible for them to compete with rock's elite names, most of them US-based.

"Add to this a down-to-earth approach with a dedicated work ethic, and you have a group whose career is already proceeding at pace.

"We're hitting the ground running here, and given the close relationship that already exists between audience and band, I’m sure that the Stone Broken/Spinefarm axis will pave the way for a seriously exciting future."

Since the release of their 'All In Time' debut (2016), reviewed here, Stone Broken have forged a close bond with their fast-growing fan-base (The Broken Army), attracted strong media support and notched up impressive live achievements in the UK and Europe, including tours with Glenn Hughes and Living Colour, plus appearances at this year's Download and Ramblin' Man Fair, opening the main stage at the latter.

Wisconsin-born, Los Angles based Jared James Nichols releases his new album, '“Black Magic',” on Friday 27th October via Listenable Records. All tracks on the new album were recorded at The Boneyard in Boston as well as Johnny Depp's home studio in Los Angeles and produced and co-written by Tony Perry and Jared James Nichols.

Over the past four years Jared has built up a solid reputation as a stunning heavy edged blues rock act and stage beast, having shared stages with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zaak Wylde, Glenn Hughes, Walter Trout, Blue Oyster Cult, UFO and Saxon.

The Bad Flowers are lead vocalist and guitarist, Tom Leighton, bassist Dale Tonks and drummer Karl Selickis. The band will release a new single, '“Secrets',” in January ahead of the release of their debut album, “'Starting Gun'”, on February 16th 2018. The Bad Flowers just finished supporting The Picturebooks on their recent UK tour.
