Break of Reality
Break of Reality has been applauded for its “genuine technique” and ability to “rock out like they mean it,” according to Time Out/New York. With a sound described as having “excitement, originality, and an undeniable intensity that louder, heavier bands only dream of,'' as the Rochester City Newspaper put it, Break of Reality is a cello rock band originally formed at the Eastman School of Music in 2003. The band is filling concert venues around the country with fans eager to hear their original music as well as interpretations of Tool, Metallica, and System of a Down. Cinematic, subdued, and heavy all at once, it draws fans of Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, and Yo-Yo Ma. Break of Reality has given hundreds of performances across the country at performing arts centers, colleges, rock clubs, and music festivals such as South by Southwest in Austin. Through its affiliation with Pandora Radio, Break of Reality’s music has been streamed for millions of listeners around the U.S. The band’s three albums, The Sound Between (2006), Spectrum of the Sky (2009), and Covers (2012), have sold over 40,000 copies worldwide.
