According to vocalist and guitarist Aaron Stone: "More than anything else Broken Voice is about joy. The last year of my life has been about finally learning that I don’t have to fight God to get what I need. I don’t have to prove myself to Him either. Jesus came precisely because none of my own methods would ever work. I had been striving so hard for perfection when all I ever had to do was surrender to it. I never knew where I was headed until God broke my will and gave me His. I never sung a song worth hearing until He broke my voice and made it His."
"The seeds of these songs, musically and lyrically were planted firmly in the soil of our home community,” says Aaron. The band did spend a week in seclusion, locked away in a barn, “trying to make sense of all the parts, but overall it was a very smooth process. The songs had already taken their basic form in the living room and around the burn barrel at Machina House."
Broken Voice will be released July 2011, and although it is an altogether different sound for MY EPIC, Aaron notes, "This record is not a permanent departure from where we have been headed in the past but simply another focused aspect of what the Lord has placed within us. Normally it would not be possible for us to put out two records one year apart but since these songs were so different it allowed us to keep creating in a vein that hadn’t recently been depleted."
