Secrets – album overview

Secrets is the third full-length album by Australia’s powercore metal pioneers, A Breach of Silence. The album was produced by Fredrik Nordstrom (In Flames, Bring Me The Horizon, Arch Enemy), and mixed by Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman (Sweden). Secrets was released worldwide on February 24, 2017. Buy the full album on compact disc, iTunes, Amazon, or Google Play, and stream the full album via Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Deezer, and more

“Secrets was approached differently than the last two albums Freddy and Henrik did for us” says guitarist Cossie. “They flew down here to meet up with us the day after Christmas of 2015, and over the next twenty days we tracked the entire album here in Australia. Afterwards, they brought the stems back to Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden. Over the next three months, they were consistently sending us various mixes of the album for us to check out. Once the album was done, the staff at Eclipse Records began getting familiar with the material and we started talking about possible singles for the album. By June of 2016, we all had a game plan in place and began shooting videos for the first three singles.

The band’s previous albumThe Darkest Road debuted on the iTunes metal chart at #1 in Australia, and at #20 on AIRA’s 100% Independent chart. Dozens of music blogs and media publications placed it in their Best of 2014 lists too. “We did well on our last album” states vocalist Rhys Flannery, “and we set the bar for success pretty high, so we’ve got to top that this time around. Secrets is different than our previous album. Blair and I are doing lots of vocal harmonies, there’s a lot more stuff people can sing along with, and while it’s still heavy as hell, the songs are much more diverse. We’re really proud of what we’ve created here.
