CHICAGO-BASED SURF ROCK BAND THE BREAKERS RETURN IN EARLY 2021 WITH NEW EP “A DATE WITH DESTINY”
A DATE WITH DESTINY FOLLOWS 2020 CD RELEASE OF “VOODOO TREATMENT”

The Breakers are a Surf / Psychedelic / Garage / Punk instrumental combo from the Chicago area.

THE BREAKERS ARE:
Jim Abrahams - Guitar, Effects
Marc Lockett - Drums, Percussion
Jayson Slater – Bass

The Breakers formed in 2018 at an open mic in the Chicago Area when guitarist Jim Abrahams walked in with a list of classic surf instrumental covers and free-form instrumentals that he wanted to play, a Stratocaster and a Digitech drum pedal, into which he had preprogrammed the songs.  He quickly met up with drummer Marc Lockett, who was running the weekly open mic, and bassist Jayson Slater.  The three decided to play the songs together, the drum machine never came out of the box, and the band was born.

The band began playing and, with local friends pitching in here and there, began recording in the Chicago area.  In early 2020, The Breakers released a new CD entitled Voodoo Treatment. An excellent follow-up to the band’s 2019 album, Transmissions From A Hornet-Free Environment, the 40-minute, 14-track Voodoo Treatment exemplifies the band’s adventurous, surf-based instrumental approach. Standout tracks include the title track, “Voodoo Treatment”, the heart-pounding “Astral Valley” and “Wave Train”.

Following early 2020’s, Voodoo Treatment, and with limited opportunities to play live due to the Covid – 19 protocols, the band focused on other projects.  After coordinating a charity compilation for the Illinois Covid Response Fund featuring other locally–based instrumental acts, entitled Chicago Surf Rally, the band recorded an end of year EP, A Date With Destiny.

The 7-track, 23-minute long collection continues the band’s penchant for enjoying the finer accouterments of life, including delicately-flavored chocolates, fine champagnes from the Northeast of France, and the intricately crafted items from the local haberdashery. A delivery of most interesting surf-based sonics, highlights include the relaxed sounds of the title track, the raging "Po’ino", and a take on Bedrich Smetana’s "The Moldau". Now in early 2021, The Breakers are poised for more sonic greatness with their new EP,  A Date With Destiny.
