‘Conflict::States’ is OUT NOW!!!

Our new album ‘Conflict::States’ is now available on all platforms! You’re spoilt for choice on this one, you can listen on Apple Music and Spotify using the links at the top of this website, or you can head over to our ‘SHOP’ using the menu above where you can purchase the album and other merchandise.

IT’S OUT Link’ers…please go and give it a listen, a lot of years work & procrastinating has gone into this album, and the best is possibly still yet to come in some upcoming bizarre DIY videos we’re in the process of making! This news may travel slow, FB decided to ban our page from using FB Ads a few days ago with no reason as to why, right on the release of this album, who knows when we’ll be allowed again. Using them and piling a ton of cash into them is risky, but it’s worked amazing the last few weeks as so many new people have started listening to us and the new album has out-sold everything we’ve sold before many times over, thanks to all of you that took a risk and gave us a listen….sadly, we’ve lost a ruddy limb ‘ere!”It’s just my luck….”Massive thanks to everyone who puts this new album on! From the people there at our first gig in 2009 where we hadn’t a clue wearing oversized shirts and Gola’s, right up to the people who have only heard of us today! ❤” – Mark post on Facebook earlier today.

Track listing: 1. The Day Called X, 2. Replicas, 3. Pioneers, 4. Antibiolotics, 5. Cold War, 6. Eras, 7. Monolith, 8. Fatalism, 9. T.T.O., 10. Zealots, 11. Year XI, 12. Disconnect.

BROKEN LINKS set loose melodic engulfing alternative rock that is dark, evocative, and compelling. Packed with moody guitars lines, poignant vocals and electronic soundscapes, the Brit rock combo will release their superb third album, Conflict::States, on Friday 30th April. The band have also just dropped their blistering new single and video, Replicas – https://youtu.be/Mr8dUGKj2ZQ .

Initially taking influences from a range of areas planning from the Manic Street Preachers, Depeche Mode, and Nine Inch Nails to The Chemical Brothers and Massive Attack, BROKEN LINKS have fastidiously created a hugely unique sound that is crammed with integrity and is absolutely all-conquering. The three piece consist of Mark Lawrence (Vocals/Guitars), Lewis Betteridge (Bass), and Phil Boulter (Drums), and hail from Eastleigh. Ever since their formation in 2008, the threesome have constantly pushed boundaries, striving with considerably success to produce new pathways and possibilities for their ever-evolving sound.

BROKEN LINKS have built a remarkable and loyal fanbase following the self-release of three EPs and two albums, and by playing shows with the likes of British Sea Power, The Boxer Rebellion, InMe, My Vitriol, and The Chameleons in the UK, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, and Italy. This year, BROKEN LINKS return with their blistering new album, Conflict::States. The record is an angry statement aimed at the present plight of the world. Mark Lawrence (Vocals & Guitars) illuminates: “People are living in a world where they think they have choices. There are no choices. We’re on borrowed time. This album is a statement of awareness to all the shit holding society back.” From top to bottom, the album is a thrilling combination of goth-electro, post-punk, and pop-rock that takes the listener on a formidable aural experience.
