BALANCE BREACH, a band among the most promising upcoming metal bands from Finland, released a new single “The Spark.” Just like the previous single releases “Escapers of Paradise,” “Overthrown,” and “Untouchable,” “The Spark” continues the path of dark themes, as the lyrics cover the topic of loneliness. At the same time the band tours in Finland during the rest of 2022, BALANCE BREACH move steadily towards releasing their second studio album (TBA), which will be published by Out of Line Music.
Vocalist Aleksi Paasonen shares more details about the new song:
“’The Spark” is among the first songs composed on the second album. At that time, we lived at the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic, and loneliness and social distancing were the norms of the day. Also for those people, who hadn’t faced this kind of distancing and being alone before the pandemic. As I thought about this, I started to think how unwanted loneliness is in fact everyday life for many people, no matter the pandemic. This idea turned into lyrics of “The Spark” as a caption of a person, who is overwhelmed with loneliness which steals the spark from joy of life.”
BALANCE BREACH have been working on their upcoming album with their trusty producer Rami Nykänen. Mixing and mastering are done by Florent Salfati from the band LANDMVRKS.
