Bio

Since their inception in 2014, Australian punk rock and roll sensation Black Heart Breakers have achieved punk rock glory opening for Marky Ramone, Stiff Little Fingers, Ruts DC and Radio Birdman, in between tours and playing hundreds of gigs

Black Heart Breakers sing about the hard times, drinking, and girls. It’s an exhilarating wall of sound, with raw lyrics, sweet harmonies and fast downstroke guitars. 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 Fred Fassert’s ‘Barbara Ann’. 2017 saw Black Heart Breakers team 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) at his home studio in Avalon and Mixed by Dan Dixon (Biters, Wyldlife . This EP packed a quick punch and is unmistakeably noticed for its remarkable artwork by Ben Brown (Cosmic Psychos, Airborne, Pixies). Black Heart Breakers have never been afraid to wear the influences on the sleeve proudly, loving everything from the Ramones, the Beach Boys, AC/DC and Rancid. Starting 2018 exactly how they left 2017, Black Heart Breakers jumped into the studio with producer Daniel Antix (Gay Paris, Sound Of Seasons, Transvaal Diamond Syndicate) to record ‘Rotting Out’. This 6 track EP introduces a tighter, slicker and meaner sound than previous efforts.

In between drinks Black Heart Breakers are constantly honing their live performance, songwriting, and musicianship and are wasting no time waiting to get discovered

A band of high energy talent and this song encapsulates everything great I've seen from their live performances. Love it.
