On Broken Wings finishing up new album

Friday, September 07, 2012 4:42 PM PT


Official press release:

Boston's On Broken Wings is set to finish recording the tentatively titled Summer Solstice this fall at Darkside Audio. Darkside Audio is the recording studio owned and operated by guitarist Mike McMillen. The new album will be the proper follow-up to 2005's It's All A Long Goodbye, as 2007's Going Down was a re-release of the band's 2001 debut Number One Beautiful with four new songs. A recurring theme for each of the former releases, including 2003's Some of Us May Never See The World, was the addition of "I Do My Crosswords In Pen" on each release. When asked whether or not the track would appear this time around, Mike McMillen laughed and commented, "No, that song is done!"

However the tracks featured on the Summer Solstice Single, "Crowns Meant For Kings" and "Ego Ideal," will be on the forthcoming release and offers a glimpse into the band's current sound, which is the vintage On Broken Wings. The tracks may currently be heard on Facebook, and has received nothing but positive feedback since they were released. The two track single may also be purchased from iTunes.

Kids who use their parents laptops and wifi to bash on bands they dont like and say "gay" and "vanflip" because they cant produce anything original that takes brain power to come up with are stoked to bash bands and fans of these bands that actually go to shows and support their scene and the music they love instead of unintelligently insulting the things they dont like day in and day out.

Kill Yourself.

Shay is stoked, getting triple teamed by FSU members while she leaves her kid with her dad will allow her to occasionally reference FSU on her twitter. When they dump her in a gutter in 2 weeks the depression will force her back into porn again, only this time only AuntJudy.com will be willing to accept her stretch marked body.

I'm about to step back from this monstrous thing that
brings the pain, as red tears pour down like rain.
Explain to me atrocities so that I might understand
why it's out of my hands...

HAHA. In all fairness, they were a bit ahead of their time, but now they're just a bad version of a million other bands.
