Unleashing their debut album The Healing Powers of Hate earlier this month, Montreal, QC‘s BornBroken announce the departure of vocalist Jesus Salazar whom will be replaced by vocalist Matt Bailie (ex-The Catalyst).
Guitarist Mike Decker comments:
“We had come to a pass in the road; Jesus had some tough life decisions, which came down to no longer being able to sing for BornBroken. We have had 2 great years with Jesus and recorded a stellar debut CD. We wish him the best in his future projects and health. Thanks for everything! To all our fans, this bump in the road came with a glimmer of hope at the end. BornBroken was able to quickly fill the empty spot in the lineup and is happy to announce -The Catalyst’s ex-frontman Matt Bailie as the new singer. We will debut our live show with Matt on July 12th in Montreal at Foufounes Electriques supporting The Agonist.”
Matt Bailie also comments:
“I would like to thank Mike, Simon, Tommy & Joe for the opportunity to once again destroy and dominate on stage. BornBroken has big things planned for the not so distant future and I am glad to be a part of it. This is a new chapter for me musically and I personally cannot wait to unleash our music upon the masses, ‘Hear our cries… the Broken shall rise.”

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.
