broken TESTIMONY- Featured Band of the Week

Founded in 2016 in the Upstate of South Carolina, by drummer Bryce Chism and lead guitarist and vocalist, Judge Page. Broken Testimony has quickly become a popular 4 piece alternative rock/metal ensemble, playing multiple shows with both local and national acts throughout the Southeast after quickly gaining two additional members; Justin King (bassist) and Nic Delvaux (guitar).

Inspired by some of the most prestigious musicians in the industry, such as; Breaking Benjamin, Tool, Chevelle, Korn, and more. Broken Testimony prove they’re more than up to the task with the sound of their kinetic debut album Holding on to Nothing, which celebrated its release on June 22, 2018. From the unsettling ghostlike vibes of “Unknown” to the moody slither of “Fade Away” to the ugly metallic screamo head of “Medusa” to the ultimate uplift and release of the album-capping “Vitality,” Broken Testimony have staked their claim for being at the forefront of a new generation that’s leading rock & roll’s ever-evolving melting pot.

Page and Chism found they had an instant connection when they first started jamming together about three years ago, once they discovered they had mutual interests while attending the same graphics communications class. “Bryce and I were jamming on some songs that were actually difficult to play, but we played in perfect time and never got off-beat,” Page recalls. “It all just flowed so well together, and we knew right there. You just know when you have that kind of chemistry with somebody.”

“We were down in his dad’s basement, and his mom and dad were watching us. At the end of it, we all looked at each other and they were like, ‘You guys were on key. You knew each other’s cues already.’ Judge and I clicked right off the handle, and we just knew it. We jammed for like three hours, and that’s when we went, “Yeah, we just need to start a band. This is it.” Concurs Chism.

And from there, Broken Testimony was truly born. “To be able to play my music in front of people and give them energy and give them hope — that’s what I want the most, and I’m sure every single one of the guys in the band feels the same way,” concludes Page.

“I want someone to pick up this album and go, ‘Yeah — whatever you guys are doing, I’m onboard. This is worth it. This is a band I need to invest in.’” Adds Chism.

Without a doubt, based on the myriad of satisfying sonic evidence found all throughout this most evocative debut album, Broken Testimony handily demonstrate that you can get something from nothing.
