Their debut EP for Standby Records, Just(Defied), oozed with passion and promise, leaving the listener wanting to hear a whole lot more. And now with their full length effort Fragment, Bruised But Not Broken explodes into the stratosphere with a shattering collection of songs that will surely captivate the senses. Complete with heartfelt lyrics displaying an intriguing sense of urgency, Fragment is a sonic puzzle of post hardcore intricacies well worth piecing together. The discoveries found within this emotional roller coaster ride of an album are vastly rewarding.
As the collections plays through, Bruised But Not Broken continually impress. Each member of the band certainly pulls their weight, even if the album does fall a bit short near the end. Think of a cross between I See Stars and A Skylit Drive; these guys blend a lot in their sound, keeping things fresh and still easily accessible for even the laziest listener. Fragment may not be without its flaws, but they are certainly minor. Bruised But Not Broken have a very bright future ahead of them if their last two releases are any indication of what’s to come. Check these guys out before they truly blow up in their scene.

Bruised But Not Broken‘s new album “Fragments” receive a 10 out of 10 in the New Fragments Review. Don’t forget to pick up the new album, in stores & online now!
Fragment is more than impressive instrumentally, too. The band has truly found a way to sound unified, to pull out all the stops and put out the best material they possibly could muster. Without the efforts put forth by each and every member of the band: Hudson Hower (Vocals), Matt Bentley (Drums), Josh Rhodes and Trevor Floyd (Guitar) and Zac Johnson (Bass), this album would be nowhere near the success that it’s meant to be. Each piece was executed flawlessly and I truly believe that this album will launch them even further than they’ve managed to get so far! If Fragment is any indication on the direction the band will be exploring in the future, you can count me in! Pick it up when it hits stores on March 4th or, better yet, use the links below to pre-order it and discover for yourself how impressive this album, and this band, is!
