Break Even is a four piece Rock-Punk n ' Roll fantasy from Hull, England.

Having spent the past year honing their energetic live performance, Paul (Guitar/Vox), Tom (Lead Guitar), Rob (Bass) and Andy (Drums) are now in talks to release a single, with new material currently being worked on for a debut album. Highlights of their one-year career so far include support slots with Jetplane Landing and The Towers of London, being filmed playing live for BBCi s Spark TV, having a track A-listed by Hull ' s own KCFM radio and being named ones to watch ' by the popular Sandman fanzine.

Their personal musical influences include The Clash, Cribs, Foo fighters, Incubus, Less than Jake, Metallica, Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Ordinary Boys and The Specials. Someday soon Break Even will play the main stage at the Carling weekend and the crowd will bounce along with them in unison.
