New Release Section: Tears For Fears, “Break The Man”

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Today, iconic British duo Tears For Fears have released “Break The Man,” the third single off their highly anticipated first studio album in seventeen years, The Tipping Point, arriving February 25th, 2022 via Concord Records. Co-written by Curt Smith and Charlton Pettus, and co-produced by Curt, Roland, and Charlton, the band has crafted an empowering yet groovy track, with the overarching message being to break the patriarchy.

Of the song Curt says, “‘Break The Man’ is about a strong woman, and breaking the patriarchy. I feel that a lot of the problems we’ve been having as a country and even worldwide to a certain degree has come from male dominance. It’s a song about a woman who is strong enough to break the man. For me, that would be an answer to a lot of the problems in the world.”

The Tipping Point is one of 2022’s most anticipated albums according to Pitchfork, Vulture, Stereogum and many more. Pre-order The Tipping Point now HERE. Also, starting today a limited edition cassette is available for pre-order only through the band’s exclusive web store and independent retail. Pre-order HERE.

In October the pair released the first single & title track, “The Tipping Point,” capturing the grief of watching someone you love lose their long-standing battle with disease. Their second single “No Small Thing” was a meeting of the minds as the pair went back to the drawing board and found the heart and soul that would complete the album.

The accompanying video was made using solely found footage showing the conflict between individual freedoms and collective responsibility. The Tipping Point is the bold, beautiful and powerful sound of Tears For Fears finding themselves together, once again.

In November, the band also announced THE TIPPING POINT WORLD TOUR, with support from Garbage on the U.S. leg. Kicking off in Cincinnati, OH on May 20th, 2022, these dates will see the band performing in over twenty cities across North America before capping off with their last show in Wantagh, NY on June 25th, 2022. These dates will mark the band’s first U.S. tour since 2017.
