BornBroken Announces Charity Show

Groove metal outfit BornBroken is proud announce the band will be supporting this year's third annual benefit show Rock The Cause on December 7th at Le Pionnier, with proceeds donated to The Montreal Children's Hospital.

The band will be joined by Melting Point, One Night Stand, Monkey Bones and Your What's Itchy. BornBroken guitarist Mike Decker comments:

"BornBroken is always happy and very humbled to play and be able to give back not only to people in need, but to help out sick children who do not or may not have the same opportunities that we were blessed with. We've all had hard lives (probably mostly self inflicted), but never ever as hard as these kids have or will have, so when we were given the chance to play the Rock The Cause III show benefiting The Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation, we jumped on the chance to dawn on wings instead of horns for a night.

"Steve Hart and his family, friends have been amazing in taking time out of their lives to put on benefit shows for different charities. There will also be a non perishable donation box for the local food bank On Rock Community Services that Percy Hart 'Your What's Itchy' is also doing. So please look in your cupboard and grab a can of something you would usually eat and bring it on down for someone who may not get the luxury. More...

Stay tuned cause what we have coming up in the near future for The Broken is going to blow your mind...the best is yet to come..see you in the pit."

"We had come to a pass in the road; Jesus had some tough life decisions, which came down to no longer being able to sing for BornBroken. We have had 2 great years with Jesus and recorded a stellar debut CD. We wish him the best in his future projects and health. Thanks for everything! To all our fans, this bump in the road came with a glimmer of hope at the end. BornBroken was able to quickly fill the empty spot in the lineup and is happy to announce The Catalyst's ex-frontman Matt Bailie as the new singer. We will debut our live show with Matt on July 12th in Montreal at Foufounes Electriques supporting The Agonist."

Matt Bailie also comments: "I would like to thank Mike, Simon, Tommy & Joe for the opportunity to once again destroy and dominate on stage. BornBroken has big things planned for the not so distant future and I am glad to be a part of it. This is a new chapter for me musically and I personally cannot wait to unleash our music upon the masses, "Hear our cries...the Broken shall rise."
