Well those hard rockers from Walsall UK, Stone Broken have done it again, smashing the music scene with their powerful and meaningful latest track ‘Heartbeat Away’ touching on the subject of Domestic Violence, laying down roots for many that will have been through such hard times this track will ultimately touch the hearts of millions!
The band is on a crusade to ensure that topics such as these get spoken about, which ultimately we jump on board and support their choice to speak out about, we tip our hats and salute them for their bravery, hopefully now instead of being swept under the carpet, we can take a stand together and unite to help others.
After releasing their new track via Spotify, we managed to get hold of vocalist Rich Moss of Stone Broken who tells us, “So far we have had quite a few people speak to us about their experiences already, which is what the song is intended for. If it gets the issue some attention then its working”.
Domestic Violence or Abuse can happen to anyone Male or Female.
This can include physical, emotional and sexual abuse in couple relationships or between family members.
Stone Broken release ‘Heartbeat Away’ to push the subject in order to get people talking about the issue, and hopefully more people will recognise the signs and be able to reach out to those that need help.

The BBC also released 1 day ago 22/02/2018 that harsher sentences are being brought in for those that commit Domestic Abuse, stating ‘new guidelines – which take effect in May – contrast sharply with those issued 12 years ago which state offences in a domestic context should be seen as ‘no less serious’ than others.
