Emerging from the new French alternative scene, Breaking Fuel, a free/alternative/progressive five-piece band from Bordeaux, will physically release its debut full-length album in September. The digital version is available now on Bandcamp with 3 songs for streaming and the pre-orders will come very soon.
Resulting from the many and various explorations and experiences of the members of this uncanny team, Breaking Fuel has been painting itself as a definite Rock-o-colored item! The band has taken shape around the musical humanity of its 5 members (2011), and has been “cemented” by the recording of a first EP (5 tracks), which was handed out personnally by the band, back in 2012.
Enthused by the warm welcome the EP met for its debut release, a long and successful series of concerts would soon follow (2012-2013). This evolution led the later addition of a sound engineer to the crew. From cosier and more intimate Apartment Sessions to larger venues (Rock School Barbey Theater), and not omitting the literally more “underground” local scene, as well as playing for the opening of World Surf Contest (in Lacanau, France), or lastly, at Barcelona’s RazzMattaz, the band, mirroring their refreshing music has been rocking venues in an unexpected fashion.
This results in the recording of a 1st full-length album, displaying an amazing number of collaborations on their tracks including Adrian Terrazas Gonzales on saxophone (The Mars Volta, T.R.A.M.) or Matthieu Lesenechal (Bagdad Rodéo). This album has been integrally recorded analogically at Studio des Collines (France), allowing for Live takes. Mastering has also been undergoing the same process. It was the band’s personal request that their sound be treated the analogical way, thus capturing the team’s energy and sincerity. Breaking Fuel’s sound is heavily tinted with the 70’s signature sound, mixed in with more contemporary flavours, inviting the listener on an epic journey.
