Breaking Orbit

It’s been a little over a year since this Sydney Progressive hard-rock band established themselves as Breaking Orbit, and it has been a year of tremendous growth on a personal and national scale.

Breaking Orbit began 2010 supporting Australian music heavyweights such as Cog, Dead Letter Circus and MM9, as well as sold-out home town headlining shows, and an array of trips up and down the east coast of Australia in support of the 2009 EP.

In the first half of 2010, Breaking Orbit began the recording of their debut album at The Grove Studios (Silverchair, The Butterfly Effect) on NSW’s Central Coast with the assistance of Producer Evan McHugh (Dead Letter Circus, MM9) and the bands in-house producer Dylan Mitrovich.

The first tunes released from this recording were on the ‘My Direction’ 3-track single, released in August 2010 and followed by a semi-national tour. Digital sales as well as the limited-run pressing sky-rocketed, 3 months after the release, physical copies have almost expired. Sydney’s Drum Media described the new material ‘Precise Musicianship, gets surprisingly heavy’.Much like the tracks ‘Orion’ and Massive Attack cover ‘Dissolved Girl’ from the 2009 EP, ‘My Direction’ also received airplay on a number of radio networks across Australia, including national radio Triple J.

    Wow. Cannot believe i've put off hearing The Time Traveller these past few months man. Absolutely kicking myself. It's definately going in my Top 10 list for this year that's for sure. I thought i had my AOTY decided but fuck i don't really know now lol. The Time Traveller could just be it.

    Took me a little while, but I'm really enjoying The Time Traveller now. And they were really awesome live the other night, first time I'd seen them since a Nucleus show in 2009!

    i found the time traveller a bit disappointing, since the awesome tracks like callsign, my direction and orion are there, there are no other track in their same level of epicness, but is a good album overall, maybe i need to listen it more...

    Yeah, this guys definitely should be more popular, they were so awesome at the DLC gig last night. If I had to rate, I'd give em an 8/10, and they weren't even the best band there.
