Courtesy: Bravo Delta Music/O’Donnell Music Group

Hard rock band Bravo Delta will release its debut album next month, and in anticipation, has debuted the video for the album’s lead single.

The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Unbreakable‘ on Jan. 13. The song is the title song from the upcoming record, which is due out Feb. 1.  The album’s track listing is noted below.

Track Listing:
1. Unbreakable
2. Fire
3. Numbers
4. Dark Room
5. Sleepless Dream
6. Karma
7. Virus
8. Modus Operandi
9. Lost at Sea V.1
10. Lost as Sea V.2
11. Insignificant
12. Dreamless Sleep
13. Knights of Desire

The video presents the band performing its single in a dimly lit warehouse setting through a variety of fast-paced camera shots.  The song is streaming by itself now via Spotify.

Front man Brandon Davis explained the lyrical concept behind ‘Unbreakable,’ saying it centers on self-determination.

“This new album and single is three years in the making, and features the best material that we’ve ever created,” Davis said.  “Being broken, disconnect, kicked to the ground…and still having the will to get up, fight and learn from it is the spirit of ‘Unbreakable,’  And I think you can feel that in the music, the artwork and everything about this new album.”

Unbreakable is Bravo Delta’s third overall studio recording.  The band released its debut EP Sunset Wasteland in 2012.  That record was followed up the next year by Shutdown Sequence.

Bravo Delta has a handful of live performances scheduled in support of Unbreakable that features appearances at the National Association of Music Merchants’ annual winter conference on Jan. 25, Feb. 9 in Las Vegas, NV and Happens Rock Radio Convention on Feb. 20-22.  The band’s tour schedule is noted below.

Upcoming Bravo Delta Appearances/Shows:
