A. Front

“Freemason (You Broke The Promise)” is a song by Australian synth-pop band Boxcar. They rose to prominence after releasing the single “Freemason (You Broke The Promise)” in 1988 after signing with Volition Records, and hit number 8 in the United States Billboard dance music chart. Initially criticized in the local press for being derivative of New Order they nevertheless built a local following, despite a lack of commercial radio airplay for electronic music.

In 1990 the band released their debut album Vertigo. A round of live dates and tours followed including supports for New Order, Depeche Mode, Erasure and Pet Shop Boys.
