    "Watercolors" was released in the summer of 2011, marking the beginning of a new chapter for Broken Glow. With Garrett taking over lead vocals and Andrew joining on bass, the band continues to display the firepower leads of Brenner and the primal thumps of Paul on drums.
    The first studio release from the group presents five distinctive tracks, beginning with the thundering ballad "Month Of May," where interlacing guitar arpeggios coalesce at the climax into sludgy riffs. The phrygian scales of "The Great War" capture a hopelessness which echos in the text. This story of disillusionment is greatly inspired by Arthur Miller's classic "Death Of A Salesman." Next comes perhaps the most delicate selection on the album, "Sabrina." With oscillating dynamics, honky tonk shuffle and half-time stomps, the lyrics portray a pair of lost souls seeking guidance in their turbulent world. "It's Not Alright" swings in next, a direct homage to Bob Dylan and a romping anthem with blues attitude. Finally "Dogs & Demons" caps the album, a thundering send-up to the greatness of heavy rock. Chugging rhythms paint a rocky landscape over which the struggle of man against himself looms large. A fitting end to this truncated epic of an album. ... more

about

Broken Glow Savannah, Georgia

Once described as the sonic love child of Slash and Led Zeppelin, Broken Glow's one mission is plain - to rock. After over five years of recording, traveling, melting speakers, exploding amps and musical mayhem, Garrett and Paul remain the last men standing as they continue to take their brand of heavy music to the limit. ... more

Track Name: Month of May
I emerge, from the pain, led by a gentle, guiding, light
Standing on, the water edge, I'm soaked and haunted by the night

I was young, but lost it all, here in the night
Spring has come, I've left the cold, so far behind
I can feel, the Month of May, here in the light
morning comes, i am reborn

I am clean, tearing out, I leave your memory behind
In the sun, i feel the warmth, and it could bring me back to life

I was young, but lost it all, here in the night
Spring has come, I've left the cold, so far behind
I can feel, the Month of May, here in the light
morning comes, I am reborn

I am reborn

I was young, but lost it all, here in the night
Spring has come, I've left the cold, so far behind
I can feel, the Month of May, here in the light
morning comes, I am reborn
I was young, but lost it all, here in the night
Spring has come, I've left the cold, so far behind
I can feel, the Month of May, here in the light
morning comes, I am reborn

I am reborn
Track Name: The Great War
He's beaten like a shoreline, under a thousand drops of water
Trip another land mine, just a pig led to the slaughter
His father fought The Great War, and saw the face of evil
There's nothing left to stand for, just following the eagle

Dig in, brace your back against the wall
hope turned into nothing
still you gave it your all
Blood, sweat of the machine
stand against the grind
we get up off our knees

A smile and a shoeshine, he's scraping out a living
Staggers on a fault-line, when lips begin to stiffen
Out there on the long road, been looking for a savior
He's carrying a wide load, to lay before his maker

Dig in, brace your back against the wall
hope turned into nothing
still you gave it your all
Blood, sweat of the machine
stand against the grind
we get up off our knees

When they folded his flag, the clouds moved on
to the ceremony song
Twenty-one guns to the sun, the battle won, his tour is done

Dig in, brace your back against the wall
hope turned into nothing
still you gave it your all
Blood, sweat of the machine
stand against the grind
we get up off our knees
Track Name: Sabrina
She's weak and she's hungry, so feed her to the sharks
Needy and desperate, her arms still red with marks, with marks
She's got no religion, a crying aching soul
Lost out in the desert, she needs a hand to hold
Needs a hand to hold, Before we lose control

Her body is heavy, I got no help to give
Weary and restless, this is no way to live, to live, to live
I've got no religion, got blisters on my hand, no one ever told me what makes a wretch a man, makes a wretch a man
I do the best i can
Sabrina take my hand
Sabrina my queen, let's quit this crazy scene, you can't expect a soul to understand

Handwritten letter, reveals a secret fear
I tell her it's over, they'll be no devils here, no devils here
Sabrina don't you fear
Sabrina hold your tears
Sabrina my queen, let's quit this crazy scene, you can't expect a soul to understand

Keep your eyes open, Jacky's on the run
Keep your eyes open, Jacky's on the run
Keep your eyes open, Jacky's on the run
I said Jacky's on the run

Yea, Sabrina take my hand
Oh Sabrina my queen, let's quit this crazy scene, you can't expect a soul to understand
Sabrina take my hand
Oh Sabrina my queen, let's quit this crazy scene, you can't expect a soul to understand
Track Name: It's Not Alright
His name is Brian, He's a private, and he's dyin' to go flyin' cause he's buyin' all the lyin' bout the lion and the lamb
The lamb of god yea you know him, he's without sin, and the nation Brian's in is so christian, they wanna kill all the muslims
Doesn't matter sunni, shitte, we must be right when we re-write all the words in that absurb excuse for we the peoples rights, so grab and gun and have some fun, til our progress is undone, we'll have one supreme divider, no decider that's for sure

It's Not Alright ma,
Yea i'm bleedin' black and blue
Oh It's Not Alright ma,
Tell me is there anything, anything at all that i can do

CNN and MSNBC accuse Fox News of spin, but they're as guilty by association, soundbytes draw us in, don't wanna hear the news of Darfurs fields of empty shoes where children used to laugh and now they're dead, no, that's gives us the blues
So we'll gossip Lindsay Lohan, watch a show and make some dough and we'll forget about Tibet, and hundred trillion dollar debt
At the country club we'll dine and sip fine wine and then we'll whine about a 17% tip, so that i can pay my rent

It's Not Alright, ma
Yea i'm bleedin' black and blue
Oh well It's Not Alright ma,
Tell me is there anything, anything at all that i can do

I'm pullin' three hundred a week, it's lookin' bleek, so i decided i must speak and sell my words, cus' only cash buys bread and meat
To the grind i am a slave
A shallow grave is where i lay
You believers better pray to save land of the free and home of brave

It's Not Alright ma,
I'm bleedin' black and blue
It's Not Alright ma,
Tell me is there anything, anything at all that i can do
It's Not Alright ma,
I'm bleedin' black and blue,
It's Not Alright ma,
Tell me is there anything, anything at all that i can do
Track Name: Dogs & Demons
Clinging to a scaffolding, one not of his design, a desperate man is calling, but no one hears the cries
Open eyes and honesty could save him from the flame, but Dogs and Demons never speak, when your the one to blame

Sold into a slave
Woa oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Born into grave
Woa oh oh oh, oh oh oh

He fills the pit with everything, some poison for the vice, indulging all depravity, he's made to pay the price
Open eyes and honesty could save him from the flame, but Dogs and Demons never speak, when your the one to blame

Sold into a slave
Woa oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Born into grave
Woa oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Piece by piece the void it eats away
Face the beat and don't be led astray

Sold into a slave
Woa oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Born into grave
Woa oh oh oh, oh oh oh
