Soen’s “Unbreakable” Challenges Us To Stay Open To Different Points Of View

International Hard Rock band Soen have announced the release of their new album, Memorial, which will be coming out September 1, 2023 via Silver Lining Music. It will arrive as a deluxe CD and 12” vinyl album in Black and color variants, digital formats, and special D2C products and bundles.

The band have also released the album’s first single with an accompanying video, “Unbreakable.” The new single is a “statement of intent” of what’s to come from the forthcoming album and sees the band combine a much heavier approach with melodic sensibilities.

Founding member and drummer Martin Lopez comments:

‘Unbreakable’ is a song about how you limit yourself as a human, by blindly believing in something.

Vocalist and co-founding member Joel Ekelöf continues:

Politicians and the media paint everything as black or white, entitling you to try to destroy your opponent instead of trying to find common ground. It’s key to be humble and open to different viewpoints to keep growing, ‘Unbreakable’ feels like a marriage between classic-metal and Soen.

The new album sets out to “channel the ills of current society” while maintaining Soen’s “unique blend of progression, aggression, and beauty.”

Soen are completed by Lars Enok Åhlund (keyboards and guitar), Oleksii ‘Zlatoyar’ Kobel (bass) and Cody Ford (lead guitar) and are set to play at this year’s Download Festival (GB) on Sunday, June 11, before embarking on the Memorial 2023 tour in Europe this September, with the newly added show at the Locomotiv in Bologna (IT).
