“epic, wide-screen, evocative. . . Mark Lanegan is in sonorous, imperious voice” — MOJO, 4/5 stars

“Mark Lanegan reprises his role as a latter day Johnny Cash, while fellow alt-rock alumni Jason Pierce, Mike Patton and Richard Hawley make fleeting cameos. The result could be the soundtrack to the greatest spaghetti western never made.” — Q, 4/5 stars

“a tumultuous amalgamation of zoned-out jazz lines, wistful soul vocals, moody strings, dreamlike electronic sequences and compact rock. . . A veritable Dante’s INFERNO of an album” — NME, 8/10 stars

Soulsavers’ genre-bending album of wide-ranging majesty, Broken, was released digitally last week on Columbia Records. Its physical release date is still being determined. Joining founding production team Rich Machin and Ian Glover on Soulsavers’ haunting third album was an inspirational group of musicians who give the album a more live and open feel than their previous releases. At the forefront are the vocals of Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age), whose profound, growling croon is the perfect match for Soulsavers’ broader, richer vein of sepulchral Cinerama, plus duets with Spiritualized’s Jason Pierce, Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers, and Faith No More frontman, Mike Patton. Also appearing on the album are bassist Martyn LeNoble (Porno for Pyros, Janes Addiction), the dark, sultry tones of Red Ghost (aka Rosa Agostino), and Richard Hawley. Additionally, Will Oldham lends his song, “You’ll Miss Me When I Burn” (which is sung by Lanegan), to the album, and contributes vocals to a track on the album, as well.
