MOLYBARON release new single “Breakdown” from upcoming new album SOMETHING OMINOUS

4th August 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

French/Irish alternative rock-metal outfit MOLYBARON, known for their energetic, hard-hitting sound, will release their new album Something Ominous on September 15th on InsideOutMusic/Sony Music. The announcement of the new album comes following the success of the recent single and video “Something Ominous.”


Over the course of two subtly radical records, 2017’s self-titled debut and 2021’s acclaimed The Mutiny, this eclectic quartet has casually bent and broken all the usual rules of modern heaviness. 


In 2023, they return with their third and most fervently diverse record to date, Something Ominous: further evidence that MOLYBARON is operating in a field of precisely one. 


When MOLYBARON released The Mutiny in 2021, the world was still reeling from the effects of a global pandemic. Nonetheless, the album struck its mark with ease, garnering countless glowing reviews and comparisons to the likes of System Of A Down, Tool, and Muse. Two years on, Something Ominous reveals a band that have sharpened their focus and found their groove. Comprising ten succinct and characterful songs, which range from thunderous acts of aggression to noirish, mutant balladry, MOLYBARON’s third full-length is invigorating and immersive in equal measure.


“I don’t think our sound can be defined by one genre,” says guitarist/vocalist Gary Kelly .“It’s certainly not by design. I write and produce all the music in the band, but I’m strange – I never really listen to music. I have no idea what’s hot or what’s not these daysI suppose this makes it easier for me to create songs, I’m not trying to mirror any one style, I just write as it comes to meprobably based on what I hear floating in the ether; in the cinema, on the TV, on the elevator, it really doesn’t matter!” 


MOLYBARON are also pleased to share the second single from the album.

“Breakdown” is a heavy, pop-tinged track, with lyrics conveying the struggle of a mind on the edge of collapse, capturing a sense of isolation, confusion, and vulnerability that accompanies these dark moments. A rousing, emotional mix of melodies, driven by aggressive guitar riffs, crushing bass, and electronic synth-scapes, “Breakdown” is invigorating and immersive in equal measure.

In addition, MOLBYARON will support SOEN on their upcoming MEMORIAL TOUR 2023 in Europe, starting September 20th


Formed in Paris, in early 2015, by Dublin-born singer/guitarist Gary Kelly, MOLYBARON has become one of the most talked-about bands in the modern metal scene.

Fusing together elements of alt-rock, hard rock, and modern metal to create an eclectic, sonically dynamic experience, MOLYBARON delivers an intensely raw, original musical signature, appealing to fans across the genres.
