Gold Coast metal outfit Kaosphere have released Chain Breaker, the first single taken from their upcoming debut album In Scars We Trust, to be released in the first half of 2024.
Chain Breaker is about domestic violence, Kaosphere frontman Ricci grew up with it very severe domestic violence towards his mother which he had to witness, it’s about breaking the chains of violence and not repeating it even if you have endured it yourself.
Ricci comments on the sensitive subject matter of the track “Chainbreaker for me is paying my respects to my mum, such a strong beautiful woman. To go through a relationship Once Were Warriors style for many years and come out of it like she did I’m so proud. Don’t get me wrong there was good times too but she made her decision and whisked us away during the night on a plane to a new city we stayed in a woman’s refuge until we were safe put us in school and made sure we were ok.
We didn’t have much at all but she made it work, breaking the cycle or ‘chains’ if you wish it must have been hard task raising two boys on her own with strangers pretty much no family in a new city. All I know as it could have turned out a lot different if it wasn’t for her brave actions and decisions. Mumma Bear never fears only doing what’s best for her kids. This song goes out to all the brave Mumma Bears out there breaking the chains!”
