Long Time Divided

Long Time DividedThe song of my band, Long Time Divided, that still resonates with me is our song Breaker. Not only was it one of the first songs that we ever wrote, but it also has a heartbreaking story to it that was born from the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I just remember all the horrific news reports of all these people stuck on their roofs or fending for themselves in the streets but it wasn't until our band first formed and started writing the song in 2008 that I was able to put to words what I had seen day in and day out through all the broadcasts. To this day, Breaker is still the one song that we have requested at our shows over all the rest and I think it's because of the honesty of the lyrics coupled with the incredible guitar hooks.
