Following the recent release of their third and highly acclaimed ‘Revelation’ album, Walsall-based rockers Stone Broken are delighted to announce a new “Come Closer” headline tour, which will see them perform throughout the UK in February 2023.
With tickets available for pre-sale from Wednesday 12 October, the live run will see the band stop in Swansea, Bournemouth and Guildford. The shows will offer fans a more intimate chance to experience Stone Broken perform the breadth of their fan-favourite repertoire, but with a more personal set-up to previous shows.
Speaking about the shows, frontman Rich Moss says:
“We are really thrilled to tour the UK again in February ’23, and look forward to performing in a lot of those towns we didn’t get to play on our last ‘Revelation’ tour. We were constantly beset by problems following COVID, and during our last April run I ended up getting ill so we had to reschedule some shows! It was all a bit piecemeal so hopefully this new 13-date tour will give us an uninterrupted run to bring our new music to fans. We will be planning something a little different on these shows, so this will definitely be a great chance for fans to experience a new aspect and delivery from Stone Broken.”
A new single & video will also be released to support the tour, with details to be announced later in the year.

Forming in 2013 over a shared passion for hard-rock and post-grunge, Stone Broken released their self-financed debut EP ‘The Crow Flies’ a year later with the hope of securing themselves some gigs in the local area.
Gaining cult status in the UK with EP track “Let Me Go” and its anthemic performance video, the band went on to release their critically acclaimed debut album ‘All The Time’ in 2016 before signing to Universal’s international hard rock label, Spinefarm Records, in 2017.
Since then the band have toured the UK and beyond, and delivered incendiary performances at festivals including Download, Steelhouse Festival, Planet Rockstock and Nova Rock in Austria.
From there, Stone Broken’s second studio album, ‘Ain’t Always Easy’ (2018), debuted in the national UK Top 40 chart (listen here). More recently, Stone Broken unveiled their third studio album ‘Revelation’ earlier this year, produced by former SikTh guitarist Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Holding Absence, Bury Tomorrow).
A record that heralded the start of a significant new era for the band, summing up their re-energised musical direction and desire to push themselves and their craft, the LP saw the band achieve Number 1 spot on the Official Rock and Metal Chart.
‘Revelation’ also attracted praise from the likes of Louder, Distorted Sound and Kerrang!, with the latter awarding the album four out of five stars and enthusing: “with driving riffs, killer hooks and that teasing measure of studio wizardry, Stone Broken have given us a reason to return them to the top of that increasingly populated British rock mountain.”
After completing their ‘Revelation’ UK tour earlier this year, the band are now set to hit the road again next February. Full dates and details below.

FURTHER PRAISE FOR STONEBROKEN
“It’s a bold move, but what gives Revelation its win is the balance – guitar-led grit enlivened by an icing of bio-synthetic sonics. Ample familiarity; just enough newness. It still sounds like Stone Broken, but it’s going elsewhere – higher, wider and deeper. Crucially, it’s there in the songs, too.” (Kerrang! ****)
“Traditional song-writing and modern production shine on Stone Broken’s Revelation. They have dared to make a more radio-friendly hard rock on this textured third album.” (Louder ****)
