Picture Me Broken - Dearest (I'm So Sorry)

It seems that nowadays, whenever a new female fronted rock band is formed, they're immediately compared to Paramore or Evanescence.  These two bands have become the standards for women in rock.  This makes it harder for these new bands to get credit where credit is due.  Picture Me Broken definitely deserves credit.  While they do play the same type of music as Flyleaf and Lacuna Coil, they should be seen as a band to take notice of.

Their song "Dearest (I'm So Sorry)" is destined for modern rock radio.  The song opens with a riff played by, guitarist, Nick Loiacono that you would think belongs to Avenged Sevenfold or Disturbed.  Then, vocalist, Brooklyn Allman, comes in with her demanding voice.  The song's chorus is soaring and melodic.  The bridge after the breakdown is what surprised me the most.  Brooklyn can scream with the best of the genre.  She competes with Lacey Mosley of Flyleaf.  It really adds a roughness to the song.

You can find "Dearest (I'm So Sorry)" on their EP of the same name.  Picture Me Broken's music sounds incredibly professional for only being around a few years.  They have the potential to really break into the rock scene with a huge following.  I would definitely check them out if you like bands such as Escape The Fate, Flyleaf, Bullet For My Valentine, and maybe even Chiodos.  Be on the look out for Picture Me Broken's debut album, Wide Awake, later this year.


  1. Very cool. I'll have to check them out.

  2. Love this band...hope they get really well known and tour!
