On Broken Wings to Finish Recording New Album, "Summer Solstice," This Fall

Boston metalcore band On Broken Wings is set to finish recording the tentatively titled "Summer Solstice" this fall at Darkside Audio. Darkside Audio is the recording studio owned and operated by guitarist Mike McMillen. The new album will be the proper follow-up to 2005’s "It’s All A Long Goodbye," as 2007’s "Going Down" was a re-release of the band’s 2001 debut "Number One Beautiful" with four new songs. A recurring theme for each of the former releases, including 2003’s "Some of Us May Never See The World," was the addition of "I Do My Crosswords In Pen" on each release. When asked whether or not the track would appear this time around, Mike McMillen laughed and commented, “No, that song is done!”

However the tracks featured on the "Summer Solstice" Single, "Crowns Meant For Kings" and "Ego Ideal," will be on the forthcoming release and offers a glimpse into the band’s current sound, which is the vintage On Broken Wings. The tracks may currently be heard on Facebook, and have received nothing but positive feedback since they were released. The two track single may also be purchased from iTunes.

On Broken Wings toured with Bring Me the Horizon, Parkway Drive, Deez Nuts, and Architects in 2011. Thus far in 2012, On Broken wings has played the Jamboree 3 music festival and the 2012 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival.

Shameless plug? It's a band who used to get coverage here back in the early days who is returning with a new album after many years.

Well if that's the case then I hope Saturnus gets a headliner when they finally release their long awaited album.

I see. It's an "us vs. them" thing. Maybe saturnus shouldn't have waited so long to release their album? Hmmm... Just a thought? Also, it helps if you write up a press release ya ball gargler.

You'd better pack a lunch if you want a piece of me Nancy boi. Just because you spend most of your time on your knees washing filthy disgusting balls in the homeless shelter doesn't make you a tough guy regardless of what your mother convinced you of.

Sorry, just got back from indeed doing exactly that. It's nice to be involved with the world outside of the confines of your mothers basement. Give it a try sometime.

Oh, and take it easy on the 'ole F5 key. I only check the site out a couple of times per day so I will likely not be replying to your malicious (albeit mildly comedic) comments immediately after you post them.

Sorry to keep you though, I think your mom is yelling down the stairs. Your tots and crustless PBJ sandwich are ready.

The mom's basement comment. How original. *rolls eyes* Lets move past the fact that my son is probably older than your boyfriend and just focus on what's important here, shall we? Tell the truth. The first time you took an uncut hairy chorizo to the jaw, you fingered the dudes anal too didn't you? Because you're an over achiever. Am I right? Huh? You're a fvcking joke kid. Go put on your big boy pants and hit the library so you can reply to me more than once a day. I'm sure the wifi in your trailor park is too full to jack from your iPhone.

Remarkable, you are dead on regarding the 'uncut' incident. It's like you were there....wait a minute, you were weren't you (perhaps it was your son, I can't tell you two apart having only seen the bad you your head(s)? If it wasn't you, that's just as fine. It's ok to be just a watcher. Someday you'll be confident enough to accept yourself. I'm pulling for you.

Is that you in the profile pic? Scary! Those boots are amazing!!! It must have take you at least 5 weeks of allowance to afford those. Seriously tho, Keep up the good lulz It's fun. Oh, and should this bantering continue, let's keep the penned up homophobic slandering to a minimum out of respect for those readers (?yourself?) who are actually homosexual. Respect.

I know who the homosexual readers are here and I'm sure they'd agree your smack talk sucks more d!ck then they've even seen before. I can't make heads or tails of your blubbering idocy about me and my son, so I'll just let that go considering he'd mop the fvcking floor with you if he chose to. I graduated college while you were still sh!tting hay seeds boy, and had it not been for your mother being raped by a retard with spoiled sperm I might have been your father. Then again, you're living proof that every woman should learn to swallow anyway. If you're too busy "manning the glory hole" in a public restroom, then don't reply.

Joel = another faceless internet keyboard warrior typing all bad a$$ thinking he will actually make a point. "Saturnus", sounds like absolute dogsh!t anyways. It is fun to see absolute nobodies come on here and show how pansy they are with their internet tough guy drivel. Metalcore is for poser wannabe b1tches who think they bad a$$es, when in fact they are mommas boys cryin out for attention.......

BG1, please continue destroying this turd b1tches world up because he has yet to actually make a point on anything except how much of a jizz chugger he is.........

^ Nope, not "manning the glory hole" at the moment. What's with all the validation in the last few comments? It's ok, we are sure you are a confident individual in all that you do. We believe you.

Anyway, leave the hate mongering to the hate mongers. You're better than that aren't you? If not, still simmer down. I'm sure the site owners don't support such profane broadcasting on their site. Just saying.

I perform a service for this site. I might also add that you came in here talking sh!t to the owner of the site so check yourself b!tch. Validation? Like the fact that your mother should have swallowed or the glory hole comment? Either point is valid and stands on it's own. And what's with the "we" sh!t? You're not a member here, I'm sure you've handled many "members" but that doesn't make you one of us.

@branded: It's what I do bruthah lol.

well, since you dont know jack about the "site owner" and how he feels about things dont try to say what he supports or doesnt support. Ol DB has had to deal with idiotic nobodies coming on here and thinking they know wtf is up with the world of music and has grown tired of people tryin to tell him what to post up or not to post up. so please go back to the world of nobodies and leave this site alone from your aimless pointless blabbering....

Post 17 still stands though. There is so very little metalcore that I can stomache and with the latest thrash movement I'm hoping it will just fade away.

OH MY!!
Anal?
Glory holes?
Dripping c***s?
Exactly how did I manage to miss this thread?
Seriously, On Broken Wings, never heard of them.
Saturnus? Never heard of them either.
I'll check out both on Youtube.
As for jumping in late, what can I say?
BG, Branded and Hellrat are kind of like their own forces of nature.
Sometimes it's better just to step aside and admire the devastation.
I'll leave now before Joel starts making fun of my rainbow. :D
.......wait a minute....BG? Spanked?
THANKS SO MUCH FOR THAT VISUAL DB!!!
