These days the underground local scene has seen a decline in potential talent and ability to draw crowds. Getting a chance to cover some of the best groups in Jersey definitely sheds a brighter light on it though, and one band, Breaking The Scene, has “Limitless” potential out here.
The group officially got started in 2011, guitarist Carlos has demo recordings that date all the way back to 2006, giving this band an almost 10 year advantage over the local crop. What’s more, the years have done nothing to get these guys to miss a step. When they get on that stage they deliver with power that’s seldom seen in local groups trying to break into the limelight.
So how does the group fare after being around for so long? Well you can check them out for yourself on their latest record titled “Limitless” available now at any of their upcoming shows or by just messaging their Facebook.com page.
Unfortunately, for now at least, that’s the only way fans are able to get their hands on some real BTS merch, but all the better. I can’t stress enough how important is to get out to the local shows even if they’re an hour or two drive out. You won’t be disappointed by Breaking The Scene’s driven performance, and you’ll even get to pick up a copy of their record while you’re at it.
Breaking The Scene was bred during a few hangouts in summer school years ago when founding member Carlos, lead vocalist Reymer and the other future band members would hang out during breaks between classes. From there it was a wild ride of attic jams and years of letting the pieces fall into place.
A BTS show is definitely something to behold when it comes to local performances. Drummer Ricky drives the sickest beats to coincide with some hook-line-and-killer songs they’ve pumped out recently. If you want your mind blown, and your ear drums warped, check out Breaking The Scene at their next live performance, and keep up to date via Facebook for concert announcements.
These days the bands looking to break into the Warped Tour crowd and become the crowd pleasing reps that Jersey desperately needs for its seldom known local scene. And you can help them right now by getting online and voting at their Battle of the Bands page where they’ve just uploaded a brand new track “Deep, Steady and Hazel Eyes” so this band can get another shot to conquer Warped another year.This won’t be their first rodeo at Warped though as the band commented on their first opportunity to tackle the tour:
“It was a big moment since the first EP had just been released and even though we loved it, we didn’t expect such a great response, it felt good to know our message was spreading.”
As of right now, Breaking The Scene’s got tons of new material being written week to week, but no plans to pop into the studio just yet. You’ve got to check out what they can give at shows if you want to catch up on the latest with this band.
Do your part for the scene. Keep it alive. And most importantly, keep it moving.
