From anime to Linkin Park we talk about what inspires brothers Josh and Zach Turner to make music
PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF FOR US WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOU AND YOUR MUSIC AND TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.
- We’re Breakthrough Even. We’re a modern metal band based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Right now we’re operating as a studio project as it’s just been myself (Josh Turner) and my twin brother Zach for a couple years now. So far we’ve released two EPs: The Step That Lies Ahead (2014) and Legacy of Dreams (2015) and four singles.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR NEW ALBUM OR SINGLE?
- Our latest single we just released a few weeks ago is called Requiem. It features Christina Rotondo who did an incredible job with her vocals. We had the music for this song laying around for a long time as we had co-written it with our good friend Josh Curl when he was our bassist back in 2016. We had attempted to finish it back then, but it never felt right to us and we ended up shelving it until this past year when we decided to finally finish it. We’re super proud of how it turned out!
WHAT INSPIRED THE ALBUM OR SINGLE?
- The single actually started out as a demo that Josh Curl brought in when he was a part of the band in 2016. He had essentially laid down the groundwork for it and the rest of us ended up working together to finish the instrumental and really flesh it out. Lyrically, it’s inspired by a book I read called ‘The Three Body Problem’ from author Liu Cixin. The song isn’t meant to necessarily describe the story in the book or anything like that, but it did definitely inspire a lot of the imagery and themes found in the lyrics that I thought were super relevant.
CAN YOU SUM UP THE ALBUM IN A FEW WORDS?
- Heavy. Epic. Melodic.
