Video Premiere: Frank Viele Enlists Joe Bonamassa and Tim Palmieri for “Broken Love Song”

April 7, 2015

Today marks the official release of Fall Your Way, the solo debut from Frank Viele (Frank Viele & the Manhattan Project). Viele, the reigning New England Music Awards Live Act of the Year, has some notable guests join him on the album, including Joe Bonamassa and Tim Palmieri both of whom appear on “Broken Love Song,” the second single from the record. Today we premiere the official video for “Broken Love Song.”

Viele tells Relix, “I wrote ‘Broken Love Song’ about a realization I had hitting the road as a touring artist while trying to balance a traditional love life. It simply seemed impossible to pursue my artistic passions and simultaneously provide the time and attention that someone else required. It was as if the whole concept was ‘broken,’ in that the harder I worked at my goals, the more difficult a traditional relationship became. When I finished the song, I knew I needed the dirtiest electric guitar ever on it to give it the raw sense of both frustration and heartbreak. But never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined having both Joe Bonamassa and Tim Palmieri from Kung Fu playing guitar with me on the track. They both played amazingly and Tim even did a cameo in the music video as my bartender! I can’t tell you exactly how many takes of the “let’s take a shot” scene we did, as I’m pretty sure I lost count half way through. But overall, I am honored that such talented players chose to spend their time lending their skills to my music. And I’m beyond excited for my new album and this music video!”

Tonight in Omaha, NE Viele begins a tour in support of the record with Shinedown’s Zach Myers.
