BornBroken Announce Limited Edition Hockey Jersey; Make Donation On Behalf of Rock The Cause Charity Concert To Montreal Children’s Hospital

Performing at the third annual benefit show Rock The Cause last December in Montreal, QC. Groove metal band BornBroken is proud to announce with Rock The Cause that just under 3,000 dollars was raised for The Montreal Children’s Hospital. The band was joined by Melting Point, One Night Stand, Monkey Bones and Your What’s Itchy. The picture below is of BornBroken guitarist Mike Decker (far left) making the donation with Peter Chritchlow of Melting Point, Patrick Birnie of Monkey Bones, Daniel Haque from Rock The Cause staff, Rock The Cause event organizer Steve Hart with Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation Rep Tatiana.

BornBroken guitarist Mike Decker comments:

“I’ve been involved with Rock The Cause for the past three years doing designing and marketing for the event. When my band BornBroken was asked to play the 2013 event, myself and the band we’re excited and also humbled. Music is used for many reasons, to soothe the soul of the savage beast or to heal the hearts of many.  Rock The Cause chose to take a usual gig night and turn it into an event where we give back to the community.  We hope to be involved in many more of these over the next couple years and you can still donate to the foundation in the name of rock the cause/BornBroken.”

In additional news, the band has created a limited edition BornBroken hockey jersey just in time for Olympic Hockey, and being Canadian and all… the band is wishing good luck to Team Canada (both womens and mens) to bring home the GOLD!!!

“Keeping up with going for things just a little bit out of the ordinary, BornBroken have decided to put out a hockey jersey just in time for Canada to go for the gold at the Olympics in Sochi. If any of you are interested, you could go hit us up at http://bornbroken.bandcamp.com/merch and check out the merch section. What goes better with a hard-hitting sport in the frozen tundra but a little bit of BornBroken on your chest. Seeing as the jersey is a little pricey, we decided that from a little good faith on your part, the band will donate a percentage of the sale in your name to Rock The Cause.’ comments guitarist Mike Decker.

BornBroken‘s debut album ‘The Healing Powers of Hate’ was released in June 2013. The album was fan voted as Album of The Week (June 10th) on Revolver Magazine, along with debuting #8 on Canadian College Loud Charts, plus being named one of the best unsigned Heavy Metal Bands for June by Drago’s Dungeon on About.com – Heavy Metal. They have also received great admiration from Yell Magazine! quoting ‘This is a debut metal album of epic proportions. If it’s not the Canadian metal album of the year, it’s certainly in the running for Canadian debut metal album.’ and TheFrontRowReport.com quoting ‘BornBroken may be the best metal band you probably haven’t heard of. Those who love hard, heavy, angry metal are in for a treat and may find a new favorite in BornBroken.’.

About:

BornBroken was formed with one simple mission in mind: Help the masses find a voice, a face, an “X” that marks the spot through the sounds of beating skins, metal strings and broken chords.

After months of writing and hours spent in the studio, BornBroken managed to take every emotion they felt, put it to music, build off of past battle scars and create a record where listeners will feel they are part of the storyline.

On their debut album, The Healing Powers of HateBornBroken play out not only what life has given them but also what they want to give back: truth, integrity, perseverance, loyalty and faith in humanity’s struggle for equality.

Live Line-Up = (L-R) Simon Savard (Guitar), Matt Bailie (Vocals), Joe Ménard (Drums), Mike Decker (Guitar), Tommy Vaillancourt (Bass) – Photo Credit: James Arsenian

   Groove metal band BornBroken is proud announce they 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.

We will also donate a part of all merch sold that night to the cause plus we will be having a reunion with our former vocalist Jesus Anzola Salazar. SEE YA’ll there! This will be the last show for 2013…

Full event details can be found at the following link here.

This will be drummer Jonathan Menard’s last show with BornBroken as they are currently searching for his replacement to take on upcoming live and recording duties in 2014.

The band is accepting video submission auditions, which can be submitted on their facebook page here. Finalists will be contacted for further auditioning.

   Groove metal band BornBroken have parted ways with drummer Jonathan Menard and are now in search of a hard hitting, blast beating slayer to take on live and upcoming recording duties for the bands follow up to their debut album ‘The Healing Powers of Hate’ released this past summer.

In a statement released by the band:

“It is with a heavy heart today that we announce that BornBroken and long time drummer for the band Jonathan Menard have decided to part ways.

Jonathan has been part of BornBroken for the past 3 years and was a substantial member of the growth of the band. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and we will remain best of friends with him for years to come.

With that being said, we are currently holding video submission auditions for BornBroken. If you think you have what it takes then we want to see it! Please send all video submissions or inquiries to BornBroken facebook page here. Finalists will be contacted for further auditioning.

BornBroken is not going anywhere; we are not disbanding in anyway. We are currently in the writing process for our next album which will be recorded and released sometime in 2014. 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.” – BornBroken

In addition, Jonathan Ménard comments:

‘‘It’s really hard to write these lines, but my association with BornBroken is unfortunately over as we have decided to go our separate ways. However, we are on good terms in ending this adventure together and I would like to thank the band that has given me the chance to be part of a family, life experiences and cherished memories. Thank you to everyone who believed in me and I will never forget BornBroken.’’
