Stone Broken tackle the sensitive issue of domestic abuse head on with the release of a rousing narrative and performance video for current single “Heartbeat Away.” The video, premiered exclusively with Kerrang!, appears on the band’s forthcoming second studio album, Ain’t Always Easy, set for release on April 13.
The track resonates deeply for the band — depicting the all-too-familiar story of a woman in a violent relationship; a young man, living next door, frequently hears the hostility but isn’t sure what best to do.
Singer Rich Moss says, The subject of ‘Heartbeat Away’ is a little closer to home than most of the other songs I have written… seeing the impact that domestic violence has on a person you are close to and the way it affects the people around them isn’t a very nice thing to experience. I thought it was time to shine a light on something that usually happens behind closed doors, hidden away from the rest of the world. When people listen to this song, I think they will know that it’s personal and that I mean every word.”
