Hi we’re Broken Lungs From Liverpool and we are Karl Eginton Guitar and vocals, Mark highdale drums,

2. Describe your music.
Our music is a mixture of all different styles blended into one but i think our main influnces to make our music sound the way it does would be the likes of foo fighters, thrice, jimmy eat world giving that blend of easy listneing rock music so the catchy vocals and massive guitars.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.
Well there are a few different stories to how we all came together as a band. Karl and Mark start a band early 2011 which would turn out to be the first stages of Broken Lungs but whe that didnt work out; they parted ways until August 2011 when they started it up again with new members. Carl was one of those members and then after the original bass player left we asked Alex to join who had known karl for about 2 years and that is how we all came together to form Broken Lungs
