STONE BROKEN ANNOUNCE HEADLINE SLOT AT PLANET ROCK WINTER’S END FESTIVAL31st July 2023 0 By John Deaux
Stone Broken are thrilled to announce a new chapter in their rock career with a Saturday night headline slot at the Planet Rock Winter’s End festival, on February 3rd, 2024 as well as a new label deal with rock independent 7Hz Productions (ADA). The band, who launched back in 2016 with the incredible support of Planet Rock radio, has now come full circle and is thrilled to perform this headline show which will see them return with brand new material and a new album due in 2024.
Says lead singer Rich Moss “The last few years have been incredibly difficult for Stone Broken but we are back and re-energised, clear of a difficult label relationship and writing great new material which will be ready for 2024 so there is nowhere we’d rather launch this next phase of our career than headlining the awesome Planet Rock Winters End festival! We can’t wait to get back on that stage again!”.
Hailing from Walsall, Stone Broken launched onto the rock scene back in 2016 with their successfully self-released debut album All In Time, eventually amassing over 10 million YouTube views and just shy of 9.5 million Spotify streams.
Two further albums Ain’t Always Easy and Revelation were then released by Spinefarm Records in what proved to be a very fractious and commercially frustrating relationship. Now free of that, the band has discovered a new-found liberation and together with their management company JABA Music, have inked a joint venture with independent rock label 7Hz (ADA), which will see singles and a brand-new album being released in the UK and internationally in 2024.
Says drummer Robyn Haycock “We started our career back in 2016 with a successful self-released album and then got into a relationship with Spinefarm that just didn’t work out. Together with our management, we’ve decided to take back control to run the campaign we believe is best for us and our fans. It has been a very frustrating last few years but we’re all that bit wiser now! We just want our fans to know that we are pumped, we are back and will be releasing our best new music very soon! To the Broken Army we say, get ready because we are coming back stronger than ever!!”
7Hz Productions, an independent rock label and publisher set up by Barry Campbell and former Albert Productions head of A&R, James Cassidy, has steered the recent successful top 20 debt album releases for Scottish rockers Mason Hill as well as the highly acclaimed and successful Sundowners album for The Answer. With former Earache marketing manager Dan Tobin now joining the 7Hz team as global campaign manager, Stone Broken is thrilled to be part of this new venture with a dedicated team of rock specialists.
Says Tobin of his new role “I’m very pleased to be providing campaign management to the burgeoning 7Hz label, having worked with many of its acts on previous projects and releases. I’ve spent my entire working life helping to break new and developing rock acts so am always excited by the prospect of a new challenge. I look forward to continuing to build an upwards trajectory for fantastic bands like Stone Broken, Mason Hill, and The Answer, all of whom are amazing examples of the rich and vibrant British rock music scene we all love”.
For Stone Broken, 2024 is a year they are pumped and looking forward to. With new singles and an album in the works, the Planet Rock Winters End festival cannot come soon enough!
