Below is our complete The Browning news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Kansas City industrial metal quartet The Browning premieres a new song entitled "Dragon", taken from the upcoming new album "Isolation", which will be out in stores June 24 via Spinefarm Records.
Check out now "Dragon" below.
The Browning could very well be heavy music's answer to the Terminator. Whereas everybody's favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger cyborg hid an endoskeleton under a sheath of skin, the Kansas City quartet-Jonny [vocals, electronics], Cody [drums], Brian [guitar], and Rick [bass]- thinly veil a hard rock edge beneath a casing of skittering electronic dance music, hip-hop grime, metallic brutality, and industrial expanse.
New album "Isolation" arrives on June 24th, 2016. "Over the course of the last three years, rock music is primarily all I've listened to," Jonny explains. "I've been ingesting bands like Rammstein, Disturbed, and Three Days Grace. My writing swung towards that. I knew this album was going to have more of a rock vibe. Obviously, there's still metal, but the scope has expanded. The electronics remain a big part of it. Since day one, the whole point was to not only be the heaviest electronic band, but the band with by far the most electronics."
He furthered, "Isolation is by far the best album The Browning has done yet. It has everything I wanted in it and nothing is missing. It shows how the band has progressed and matured since our last release. So, I cannot wait for the world to hear it." More...

Woah, apparently The Browning not only still exists, but has now signed a new record deal with Spinefarm. The label comments:
"The Browning have steadily made their presence known in the international metal scene since their album debut in 2011. The Kansas City band, centered around mastermind Jonny McBee, released the crushing 'Hypernova' in 2013 and promptly hit the road across the UK, Europe and North America. Blurring the lines between multiple styles of electronic music, metalcore and deathcore, McBee has firmly entrenched The Browning as musical innovators in an ever-expanding cultural crossover scene."
McBee had this to say: "I am really proud of what The Browning has become. It's been a long, hard road. Signing with Spinefarm is a big step in the awesome direction this band is going and I cannot wait for the future. Excited for the world to hear this next album!"
The band is currently working on a Spinefarm debut album, which is planned for release this summer. More...

The Browning has released a brand new music video for the track "Fifth Kind." which is taken from new album "Hypernova."
The band traveled to the deep south of Savannah, Georgia to film the video at an old monastery in the middle of the woods. The video was produced and directed by Frankie Nasso and Jess Orsburn of Nova Entertainment. The Browning comments:
"The message from the song we're trying to put out is partly that we believe there is more life than just us here on earth, and that instead of forcing a religion on someone and telling them that's what you have to follow and base your life and decisions off of, let everyone find their own way in life.
"Like our lyrics say, 'You don't know the suffering inside me, I don't need your light to guide me', obviously stating you don't know me, I don't need your personal beliefs to influence my life. We're just trying to promote the idea of independent thinking as opposed to being spoon-fed all your ideas and ideologies."
Director Jess Orsburn adds:
"It was an overall positive experience creating this video for 'Fifth Kind.' After driving 20 hours from NYC to Savannah, GA and then shooting until the wee hours of the morning with a super talented group of cast and crew, I couldn't be any happier with what we were able to accomplish. The Browning are such great guys and really gave it their all each and every time they performed the track. It was brutally hot on set but that didn't slow them down one bit. They were incredible and the energy really shows through in the video." More...
