Picture Me Broken is an American rock band from Redwood City, California. They have released two EP's and one album. They were named in 2009 as one of the top unsigned bands by Purevolume,[1] and won an MTV Video Music Award in 2009 for Best Breakout Bay Area Artist.[2] Their song "Dearest, I'm So Sorry" was available as downloadable content for Rock Band 2.[3] The band is currently working on a second full length album, with no official release date.

History[edit]

Picture Me Broken was formed in 2005 by Layla Brooklyn Allman, lead singer and keyboardist, and bassist, Austin Dunn. The band was originally called 'Lane Four' with 'Lane' reflecting the first initial of the original four band members (Layla, Austin, Nick, and Eric). After several member changes and evolving style, the band settled into its new name: Picture Me Broken. With early performances consisting of covers made famous by some of Rock's best known icons, the band now writes, performs and records its own songs and has had several releases.

In December 2012, the band released a 4-song EP ('Mannequins'), produced by multi-platinum award winning producer, David Bendeth and has received acclaimed reviews from various rock publications, including Rockstar Glued, Examiner.com and MetalliVille.

Picture Me Broken was the sole opening act for the Alice Cooper / Marilyn Manson Masters of Madness – Shock Therapy nationwide tour which began in June 2013 and ended on July 21, 2013.
