Hear It First! Cello Rockers Break of Reality Premiere 'Star'

The New Now

What do you get when you combine three classically trained cellists with a percussionist and a totally rocking attitude? Something different, that's for sure! The band Break of Reality is just that, featuring cellos played in a manner you're probably not used to hearing. The group explains that their approach to the instruments comes from their combined history of studying classical music by day, and going to rock clubs at night.

Intrigued by this mix? Yahoo Music is pleased to offer the first listen to a track off the band's fourth album, "TEN." Check out "Star" right here!

The band's Patrick Laird told Yahoo Music this about the track: "'Star' is one of my favorite tracks on 'TEN.' It’s uplifting and it contrasts well with some of the darker tunes on the album. It’s also quite cinematic, and we find it evokes strong imagery from the listener – the song depicts the struggle and dedication that go into achieving something extraordinary. We hope to see this song in a movie one day."

The song also has special meaning for Laird, as he explains: "I wrote 'Star' for my beautiful wife Marnie, a classical pianist, who also played piano on the track."

"TEN" will be available March 25. Interested in keeping up with the band's schedule? You can see when they'll be in your town here.
