As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, progressive rock act The Flower Kings will release their new double album “Islands” on October 30th via InsideOutMusic. The group have now presented the first track from this opus, “Broken”.

The Flower Kings comments: “Howdy people – how is life on your islands and in your isolation? Good news is – there is music – and even better –  there is new music from The Flower Kings. Here is “Broken” – first song from our new double album/triple LP! “Broken” is a song about addiction, stress and confusion. Not a typical song for the album, because the album has no ‘typical’ style –  it is just a wild ride of  styles and influences. We’re super excited about you to hear all of it, but here is a first glimpse of the progressive smorgasbord. There is more waiting. Get your pre-orders going! Much love from Jonas – Mirkko – Zach – Hasse & Roine!”
