Performing at the third annual benefit show Rock The Cause last December in Montreal, QC. Groove metal band BornBroken is proud to announce with Rock The Cause that just under 3,000 dollars was raised for The Montreal Children’s Hospital. The band was joined by Melting Point, One Night Stand, Monkey Bones and Your What’s Itchy. The picture below is of BornBroken guitarist Mike Decker (far left) making the donation with Peter Chritchlow of Melting Point, Patrick Birnie of Monkey Bones, Daniel Haque from Rock The Cause staff, Rock The Cause event organizer Steve Hart with Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation Rep Tatiana.
BornBroken guitarist Mike Decker comments:
“I’ve been involved with Rock The Cause for the past three years doing designing and marketing for the event. When my band BornBroken was asked to play the 2013 event, myself and the band we’re excited and also humbled. Music is used for many reasons, to soothe the soul of the savage beast or to heal the hearts of many. Rock The Cause chose to take a usual gig night and turn it into an event where we give back to the community. We hope to be involved in many more of these over the next couple years and you can still donate to the foundation in the name of rock the cause/BornBroken.”
In additional news, the band has created a limited edition BornBroken hockey jersey just in time for Olympic Hockey, and being Canadian and all… the band is wishing good luck to Team Canada (both womens and mens) to bring home the GOLD!!!
“Keeping up with going for things just a little bit out of the ordinary, BornBroken have decided to put out a hockey jersey just in time for Canada to go for the gold at the Olympics in Sochi. If any of you are interested, you could go hit us up at http://bornbroken.bandcamp.com/merch and check out the merch section. What goes better with a hard-hitting sport in the frozen tundra but a little bit of BornBroken on your chest. Seeing as the jersey is a little pricey, we decided that from a little good faith on your part, the band will donate a percentage of the sale in your name to Rock The Cause.’ comments guitarist Mike Decker.

BornBroken‘s debut album ‘The Healing Powers of Hate’ was released in June 2013. The album was fan voted as Album of The Week (June 10th) on Revolver Magazine, along with debuting #8 on Canadian College Loud Charts, plus being named one of the best unsigned Heavy Metal Bands for June by Drago’s Dungeon on About.com – Heavy Metal. They have also received great admiration from Yell Magazine! quoting ‘This is a debut metal album of epic proportions. If it’s not the Canadian metal album of the year, it’s certainly in the running for Canadian debut metal album.’ and TheFrontRowReport.com quoting ‘BornBroken may be the best metal band you probably haven’t heard of. Those who love hard, heavy, angry metal are in for a treat and may find a new favorite in BornBroken.’.
BornBroken was formed with one simple mission in mind: Help the masses find a voice, a face, an “X” that marks the spot through the sounds of beating skins, metal strings and broken chords.
After months of writing and hours spent in the studio, BornBroken managed to take every emotion they felt, put it to music, build off of past battle scars and create a record where listeners will feel they are part of the storyline.
On their debut album, The Healing Powers of Hate, BornBroken play out not only what life has given them but also what they want to give back: truth, integrity, perseverance, loyalty and faith in humanity’s struggle for equality.
