Tears For Fears have just released the new video "Break The Man" from the band's upcoming album, The Tipping Point, which comes out on February 25th. Curt Smith said of the new tune, "'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 -- a better male-female balance."
Tears For Fears star Roland Orzabal has opened up on how he and bandmate Curt Smith reconnected through songwriting after a period of tension between the pair.
The follow-up to 2004's 'Everybody Loves A Happy Ending' comes after much turmoil within the group and a "dark period" in Roland's life, following the death of his late wife, Caroline Orzabal, who battled alcoholism and mental illness, which led to him seeking grief counselling, and his own stints in rehab.
