But a sneak preview of Primal Rock Rebellion’s much anticipated debut proves there’s substance as well as style underpinning the new project featuring Iron Maiden guitar hero Adrian Smith and ex-Sikth frontman Mikee Goodman.
We’ve been lucky enough to grab a copy of Awoken Broken and it rocks – just as you would expect it to such is the pedigree of the band’s big name core.
New single No Place Like Home is out now as a strictly limited 10 inch vinyl release and Goodman said: “Basically, No Place Like Home is a song about escapism.
“As you can see from the video, the verses are about someone going into a city, and all they see is darkness, negativity and despair.
“It’s about feeling really claustrophobic and wanting to go somewhere else – somewhere magical, somewhere that probably doesn’t exist. I think a lot of people have that in their lives at certain stages. So it’s saying, ‘There’s no place like home – but it ain’t here!’”
Awoken Broken is an 11-track behemoth produced by Smith and Goodman and due out on February 27th via Spinefarm.
In addition to a digital download the album is released in two Limited Edition formats – a Deluxe Digi CD and a double marbled purple and red vinyl in gatefold sleeve.
A free download track of the album track, I See Lights, can be found on www.primalrockrebellion.com as well as a link to the video for No Place Like Home.
