Brkn Love, the brainchild of 21-year-old Toronto native Justin Benlolo, will release its self-titled debut on Feb. 14, 2020, via Spinefarm Records. The album, produced by Joel Hamilton (Highly Suspect, Pretty Lights), was recorded live to tape, preserving a raw and real feeling. Pre-orders are available here.
The band has shared the new track “Flies in the Honey.” Watch the lyric video below.
“This one brings it back to our bluesy roots and I believe it totally encompasses everything that Brkn Love represents,” Benlolo said. “‘Flies in the Honey’ has a message that is very close to my heart, and there are a few social issues we wanted to tackle on this one.
“Our goal here was to bring the issues of teen and young adult drug addiction to everyone’s attention. We hope that those who have suffered from or are currently suffering from addiction can find some comfort in this and remind themselves that they are not alone. This song has sort of taken a new life of its own since we started playing it live. People have been constantly asking us about this song after the shows and we are very happy to be releasing this for your enjoyment. Keep rocking and stay tuned for our new record coming this Valentine’s Day.”
Brkn Love previously dropped videos for “Papercuts” and “Shot Down,” both of which can be seen below. The song “I Can’t Lie” is streaming here.
