New Zealand rockers, Like A Storm, have once again set a new career milestone for themselves. Their latest single “Break Free” has moved in to the Top 30 at Active Rock radio. This is the fourth single in a row from their critically acclaimed album, Awaken the Fire, to reach the Rock Top 30. The song landed at #28 this week with a bullet. A music video for “Break Free” will be released in the near future.
“’Break Free’ is a song born from a pretty dark chapter of our lives, when we had to really dig deep both personally and as a band. So it is incredibly symbolic to have it now getting played on the radio all over the U.S.,” explains Matt Brooks.
Like A Storm are no strangers to the charts – their track “Love the Way You Hate Me” became number one of the biggest rock station in North America for five weeks, making them the highest-charting New Zealand rock act in US radio history. They also made waves on the Active Rock charts with previous singles “Wish You Hell” and “Become The Enemy.”
Like A Storm are currently on tour with Hinder through the beginning of July before performing a string of headline dates through the western US. Tour dates can be seen on their website:http://www.likeastorm.com/#!tour/cjg9
Like A Storm is regarded as one of the most prolific new acts on the rock circuit. The Auckland-bred brothers— Chris Brooks [lead vocals, guitar, didgeridoo, keys/programming], Matt Brooks [vocals, lead guitar, keys/programming], and Kent Brooks [bass, vocals, keys/programming] — came to the United States knowing no one, and have built a devoted fan-base through their tireless tour schedule. The addition of L.A-based Zach Wood on drums rounds out the line-up. Like A Storm write, perform, record and produce all of their own albums.
