Having just inked a record deal that secures a worldwide release for their brand new album, London-based Gibraltarian rock act Breed 77 will launch it first in the UK to coincide with a UK tour (see dates below).
'The Evil Inside' is a dark, brooding affair from this ever evolving band, metallic yet melodic, intense and often introspective, yet in many ways the band's most accessible work to date. Solid riffs underpin each song, enriched with the strong twin guitar attack of Danny Felice and Pedro Capparos, while singer Paul Isola's multifaceted, unique voice provides goosebump moments throughout. Driven by the powerful rhythm section of bassist Stuart Cavilla and new drummer Andre Joyzi, Breed 77 add traditional flamenco influences, Latino rhythms and a Spanish/Moorish flair and spirit indicative of their roots to thoroughly modern hard rock foundations.

With album opener Drown made available as a free-to-download single prior to Xmas, a radio edit of the outstanding Bring On The Rain will be the first official single from The Evil Inside. A hypnotic Spanish guitar line leads into a truly memorable, uplifting chorus that is totally at odds with the subject matter of the song, which the band describe as "an anthem to desperation and, at the same time, an empty call for accountability. The world has gone to shit and it seems we have very little say in what goes on. We are resigned to the fact that it cannot be fixed: ‘Let the rain come and wash it all away'…"
Other album highlights include Fear, which is about the fear of failure and the self-doubt that we encounter at every turn. In every life there are moments when you question where you are in your life – am I happy? Will it ever happen? Did I make the right choices? The imposing refrain of the chorus with its repeated mantra of "it goes on and on" has elevated it into an instant live favourite.
The title song reflects on the darker side of the human condition, the part of us that hates and loathes, the part that most of us repress... or else we'd all be murderers! The slowburning 'Motionless' is an epic, haunting ballad, an ode to introspection, a conversation alone, a moment frozen in time when you feel the world is passing by and you're stuck in an involuntary stasis. Some last words as you stand teetering over the edge - on the verge of giving up.
With an already distinguished career that has seen the band release five acclaimed albums and enjoy UK Top 40 hit single success, 'The Evil Inside' is a more than worthy new addition to their considerable canon.
