Continuing the build up to their eagerly awaited debut album Tides, which arrives on the 27th of May, Manchester hard rock outfit Iodine Sky are delighted to announce the release of new single Broken Cross. The track, which is the second to be unveiled from Tides, picks up where previous single So Far Away left off.
Broken Cross is the ideal audio cocktail for any fans of rock music: pummelling drums from the outset, intricate guitar work, chunky bass lines and fret melting solo’s, topped off with the powerful vocals of frontman Aaron Ward. The release of Broken Cross is accompanied by the songs’ music video, which showcases Iodine Sky doing their thing in an engaging and visually impressive clip.
For those wanting to know a little bit more, here’s Aaron explaining what Broken Cross is all about:
“Broken Cross is the first song that started Tides as a concept and our revival as a band, we hold it very closely to our hearts.
It’s about the times when you realise that someone else might love you more than you love yourself and the last thing you want is to see their world change because of it.
We think everyone’s been in a similar relationship in their lives this is our way of telling that experience, we hope you enjoy it”
