Single Bullet Theory Releases New Music Video

Philadelphia metal band Single Bullet Theory has posted a music video for the song "Edge of Broken" online. The single can be purchased on their BandCamp page.

Guitarist/vocalist Matt DiFabio comments on the track, "This is the song that got the band moving again after an almost three year hiatus. Written about the rise and fall of Single Bullet Theory and the never say die approach that I (Matt DiFabio) has toward this band or my musical vision. I personally feel that this is one of the best SBT tracks ever recorded as it exemplifies exactly what this band is made of musically. This track really came to life by the help of Mr. John Ruszin III. Everyone reaches the 'Edge Of Broken' at one point in their life... It's all about what you do once you get there!"

Single Bullet Theory Issues Band Update

Philadelphia based metallers Single Bullet Theory have quite a busy next few months ahead of them. In the midst of writing and recording their next full length offering, the band will be hitting the road in August as part of the North American Devastation tour alongside Into Eternity and Riksha. Matt DiFabio offers some insight below:

Well, I have compiled about fourteen songs for the next record and our drummer, Nick (Bunczk) and I have been working on the new material pretty diligently to get a large portion of it ready before we hit the road. It's been pretty refreshing working on arrangements and little extras for each of these songs; I'd say its pretty consistent with the SBT sound. Some may say that that might be considered a little inconsistent considering the vast amount of influences we have and that i am not afraid to wear 'em on my sleeve. Regardless, the new record is pretty damn heavy with a good dose of melody thrown in for good measure.

Working with Nick is a breath of fresh air. His drumming and general musicianship is completely off the charts, so to hear these songs come to life with him behind the kit... well, its really inspiring. Also, for the first time in almost thirteen years, there is a collaborative effort for a track. Our guitarist, Joe Brannigan, had some KILLER riffs floating around in his noggin. He came up to the house last week and we were able to get them scratch tracked and compiled into a completely new piece of music.

It's very heavy and kinda reminds me of something that would have been done on the 'Nevermore Dreaming Neon Black' record. I have a serious pool of talent to pull from on the next record and I intend to utilize everyone's strengths accordingly. On the last SBT, 'V,' we had a blazing lead guitarist and a great drummer to record with but I knew that we would never have those exact guys live. With this new record I have even more of a blazing lead guitarist in Pat Brose and an even better drummer with Nick Bunczk. What's better yet is that I know we will be able to pull these new songs off live without a hitch.
