Emerging from the new French alternative scene, Breaking Fuel, a free/alternative/progressive five-piece band from Bordeaux, is about to release physically its debut full-length album on september.
The digital version is available from now on Bandcamp with 3 songs for streaming and the pre-orders will come very soon.
Resulting from the many and various explorations and experiences of the members of this uncanny team, Breaking Fuel has been painting itself as a definite Rock-o-colored item ! The band has taken shape around the musical humanity of its 5 members (2011), and has been “cemented” by the recording of a first EP (5 tracks), which has been handed out personnally by the band, back in 2012.
Enthused by the warm welcome the EP met for its debut release, a long and successful series of concerts would soon follow (2012-2013). This evolution led the later addition of a sound engineer to the crew. From cosier and more intimate Appartment Sessions to larger venues (Rock School Barbey Theater), and not omitting the literally more “underground” local scene, as well as playing for the opening of World Surf Contest (in Lacanau, France), or lastly, at Barcelona’s RazzMattaz, the band, mirroring their refreshing music has been rocking venues in an unexpected fashion.
This results in the recording of a 1st full-length album, displaying an amazing number of collaborations on their tracks including Adrian Terrazas Gonzales on saxophone (The Mars Volta, T.R.A.M.) or Matthieu Lesenechal (Big Sir, Bagdad Rodéo). This album has been integrally recorded analogically at Studio des Collines (France), allowing for Live takes. Mastering has also been undergoing the same process. It was the band’s personal request that their sound be treated the analogical way, thus capturing the team’s energy and sincerity. BREAKING FUEL’s sound is heavily tinted with the 70’s signature sound, mixed in with more centempory flavors, inviting the listener on an epic journey.
For fans of At the drive-in, Frank Zappa, The Mars Volta…
Where the road ends and the desert begins, Progstone distils a both crude and melodic rock whose energy demands to be released on stage.
Born 4 years ago in Switzerland as a four-piece stoner/grunge/progressive band, Progstone released a debut short effort in 2012 with an EP called in the wild before to make its first steps on stage. A first conclusive try for the band which need then to move forward to make a real “professional” album.
In 2014, Progstone releases his long-awaited first studio full-length effort (Shape, Worry Blast) and the least we can say is that the group does not skimp on resources ! Recorded at the Alternative Recording Studio in Sion (Switzerland) mixed in Seattle’s (USA) at London Bridge Studio (Pearl Jam – Alice InChains – Soundgarden…) and mastered in Los Angeles by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers,…), the album is available right now through Chamosound Records and a bunch of songs are up for streaming on ReverbNation.
For fans of Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden…
