BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART premiere video for “Rockin’ All Night”


Second video released from celebrated album Feel The Power, in stores now from Tooth & Nail Records

Jun 26, 2012 – 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 Tooth & Nail 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.

Watch “Rockin’ All Night”:
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 favor 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 favor 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.

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.

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.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
