Breaking The Chains is a project, collaboration and foundation, established to support the Dutch division of Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) in their great and important work. In 2017, some of the biggest and best rock-musicians from the Netherlands will gather to record an album for this project. 

B.A.C.A. is a wonderful organization of bikers who stand up for broken and defenceless children who’ve been abused by creating a safe environment for them.

Unfortunately, this is not the only battle these bikers are fighting out there.. They often have to deal with prejudice due to their appearances and lifestyles. This makes their important task a lot more difficult. Therefore it is of great significance that people get aware of who these heroes are and what they really stand for.  

This is where Breaking the Chains comes in. This prestigious project began as an idea to do something special and meaningful for the Dutch division of B.A.C.A., using music as a medium. Starting off by creating a single soundtrack for B.A.C.A.’s mission, this soon grew out to be a full-length concept-album.

An album with original music, especially written for this amazing project and to benefit the Dutch division of B.A.C.A.

Together with top-musicians and singers from the Dutch rock-scene, this album is written to raise the awareness of B.A.C.A. and their important mission.  

 Rockers and bikers stand up and stand united against child abuse!�P 

"Together we can Break the Chains!’
