Brimming with the balls-out rock n’ roll excess made famous by Motley Crue but possessing the shredtastic spirit of Yngwie Malmsteen, Canada’s BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART are ready to put the cock in cock rock on this summer’s Scream the Prayer Tour with arena rawk anthems so catchy and infectious they’ll be your new guilty pleasure. The trek kicks off this week so either see the tour section or feel free to visit [http://www.myspace.com/blessedbyabrokenheart](http://www.myspace.com/blessedbyabrokenheart) to view their complete touring itinerary.
Tyler, the band’s bassist, prepared the following statement addressed to their southern neighbors: “What’s up, America? We are super stoked for this massive tour. There are lots of sweet bands, including us! Expect smoke, lasers, fanny packs, hot chicks, teased hair and the kinds of things you’ll be embarrassed to remember the morning after. We wrote killer songs about the art of getting down, dangerous females, school being out and other cool stuff so we’ll be whipping out new material from our upcoming Century Media debut, Pedal to the Metal, throughout the tour. We hope to see all y’all at our shows. Don’t be shy to come talk to us cuz we love all our fans and we care about what you have to say.”
Pedal to the Medal is scheduled for a North American release on September 2nd. If you’re not on board after one listen then, rest assured, you will quickly succumb to its irresistible, feel-good ‘80s charm. The album was produced by GGGarth (Nickelback, Rise Against) and boasts the best licks recorded since Michelle Pfeiffer played Catwoman in 1992’s Batman Returns.
BBABH’s sound is best described as a modern-day mash-up of Motley Crue and Journey, and guitarist Shred Sean is destined to become one of the most talked about players in the genre with his bombastic shredding techniques. BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART have created a universal soundscape for the masses that knows no limitations. Everyone can relate to these tracks and it is now up to you to let go, give in to your desires and have nothin’ but a good time.
