Bio

Black Heart Breakers play hard and work even harder. This no bullshit mentality has led them to opening up for legends such as Marky Ramone, Stiff Little Fingers, Ruts DC and Australia’s own Radio Birdman, all in between their own tours and hundreds of shows. Tough guitars, tougher lyrics, and a sweaty band room make Black Heart Breakers feel right at home.

Their debut album was applauded by punk rock communities across the globe before ever playing a show. This was followed by a double single ‘I Want You’ and a unique cover of the Beach Boys’ ‘Barbara Ann’. In 2017 Black Heart Breakers teamed up with newly established label Cottonmouth Records to release an exclusive five track vinyl called ‘Wasted’. It was recorded by Mo Maihem (Hell City Glamours, Mucho Sonar) in Avalon and Mixed by Dan Dixon (Biters, Wyldlife). This EP packed a quick punch and is unmistakably noticed for its remarkable artwork by Ben Brown (Cosmic Psychos, Airborne, Pixies).

Black Heart Breakers have never been afraid to wear their influences on their sleeve proudly, loving everything from the Ramones, The Living End, The Angels and The Clash.

In 2018 Black Heart Breakers jumped into the studio with producer Daniel Antix (Gay Paris, Sound Of Seasons, Transvaal Diamond Syndicate) to record ‘Rotting Out’. This six track EP introduces a tighter, slicker and meaner sound than previous efforts. ‘Rotting Out’ was received with great acclaim with Save Me, Melody and Why Not Me being played by Rodney Bingenheimer in LA, as well as countless local Australian stations. Real Gone Rocks had to say "If you like punk that delivers guts and melody in one quick hit, Black Heart Breakers are for you," and “It deserves to be heard” from the I-94 bar. In support of this new EP the boys headed out on another tour. Whether in rural Dubbo, the sunny Gold Coast, or freezing in Melbourne, Black Heart Breakers deliver a hell of a show and always win over the crowd.

Fast forward to 2020, after a major lineup change the band was set to return in May alongside Australian punk legends X, as well as The Casanovas however due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the show was pulled. Spending the majority of their time in the studio these past 6 months “Pressure Drop” will be the first of three singles made available on July 24th
