BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART Debut Scorching New Track, ‘Deathwish’

Lead track from forthcoming album available to fans in exchange for a tweet


New album, Feel The Power, in stores January 24th from Tooth & Nail Records


Glam metal buzz band BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART are back with their first new material since 2008’s Pedal to the Metal (Century Media), a pulse-raising, headband-inducing, ’80s-influenced rock assault entitled Feel The Power, available in stores and online January 24th from Tooth and Nail Records.


Today, starting at 5pm EST, the band is excited to give fans a chance to feel the power of Feel The Power by offering a free download of lead track ‘Deathwish’ in exchange for a tweet. Fans simply need to retweet a message about the song, and in return they’ll receive a free download of the track.

Fans can visit here to spread the word after 5pm EST:

“‘Deathwish’ is a runaway train on full steam,” explains guitarist and British newcomer Sam Ryder. “It’s a full metal juggernaut of rapid fire riffs, mental baselines and supermassive vocals courtesy of [vocalist] Tony Gambino and myself. The song is the story of a mother’s struggle with substance abuse – locked in the vortex with her life in the balance.”

BBABH drummer Slater will appear on TVU Live’s RadioU from 4:30-5:00pm EST to debut the single just ahead of when fans can get ahold of it. Fans can listen in at:

Formed in 2003 in Montreal, Canada, BBABH released its first album – All is Fair in Love And War – a year after its inception. 2008 saw the release of Pedal To The Metal on Century Media Records, which was followed by years of incessant touring throughout the US, UK, Europe, Japan and Australia alongside the likes of JUDAS PRIEST, A DAY TO REMEMBER, BRING ME THE HORIZON, MEGADETH, STEEL PANTHER and more.


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 favor of more traditional metal and hard rock. One listen to Feel The Power will confirm 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.


“‘Deathwish’ is a deep song to come out of the gate with, but it’s gonna turn heads for the right reasons,” says Ryder. “The record may not come out until January 24th, 2012, but starting today everyone will begin to ‘Feel the Power’…”

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
