Brkn Love debuts new single ‘Dead Weight’

Toronto-based rock band Brkn Love has released the new single “Dead Weight.” The track arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Bad Beard and Justyn Moro. Watch it below.

Songwriter and frontman Justin Benlolo said: “We all had a moment in the last few years where we felt useless. There was nowhere to go and nothing to do. I had been sitting on this song idea, but I never knew what it meant to me until everything disappeared. What I had once felt as an angst-ridden teenager was coming back again and this song became a way to channel my inner dialogue.”

He continued:, “In a sense, the song is really about the dangers of your own mind and the places that it goes when you least expect it. Sometimes it feels good to lean into the darkness and know that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. That being said, we’ve been dying to get this out and show the world what the next step of Brkn Love sounds like! Coupled with a music video we literally shot within three days of changing our lead single, I have to say that this is my favorite thing that we’ve done so far. Stay tuned for what’s to come next because we have a whole lot more. Let’s rock and roll.”

“Dead Weight” is the first new music from the band since its covers of Post Malone’s “Allergic” and Bishops Briggs’ “River.” The latter was recorded specifically  for a special deluxe version of the band’s debut record and has become something of a viral sensation, with more than 40,000 unique videos featuring the track created on TikTok boasting over 825 million total views, and another 38 million views on all other user-generated content platforms.

Meanwhile, Brkn Love is gearing up to play a number of shows across Canada in support of Big Wreck and Monster Truck. The run has been split into two legs, with the first bout of shows hitting this December and a second in March and April 2022. For further information, go here.
