Staring up in late 2002 by clashing some ideas in a dirty old rehearsal room, quickly first songs shaped up, a band name was found and stages entered. The engine has been started! No surprise that half a year later their savage debut "Good Drinks, Good Butts, Good Fellows" (2003) surfaced via People Like You Records, the label the band is still in love with.
The first pressing sold out in a rush and the bands reputation quickly raised from the insider underground hottie to a decent act. Gaining a lot of experience, song writing and musical skills within the following 2 years, it was in 2005 when the acclaimed "Love Murder Blues" striked and marked the bands next level. This album enabled the HEARTBRAK ENGINES to hop on a couple of tours and festivals, also the "Bad Boys For Life" festival tour was now up on their live schedule. Conquering loads of new hearts on a headline run and supporting genre leaders, made the band to take another two years to face the studio again.
Our favourite rockers are set to break your heart once more by giving birth to their newest effort "One Hour Hero" on September 17th, 2007. A mature production and premium song writing, a never heard before catchiness alongside with the savageness of their debut is captured in the new songs.
Stompers like "Black Gold Rebel" and hymns like "Bad Job Jesus" alongside with straight forward smackers like the title track or "Mountain Of Madness" display the diversity of "One Hour Hero" and The HEARTBRAK ENGINES unique style.
Having the world famous and sickest R`n`R outfit DEMENTED ARE GO being big fans of the ENGINES, the gorgeous idea came up to have Enfant terrible and front weirdo Sparky contributing his very unique vocals (rumours telling for the first time ever apart from DEMENTED ARE GO) in a awesome duet with Lou on the closing track "Gunwich". Another interesting fact that's cementing HEARTBRAK ENGINES's outstanding skills: The renowned DEMENTED ARE GO hired HEARTBRAK ENGINES's founding member and slap-bass devil Grischa as new band-member after the very first rehearsal.
In 2007 the HEARTBRAK ENGINES set their sights high and deliver with "One Hour Hero" an album that will easily set itself apart from the pack. Rock has seldom sounded so alive - HEARTBREAK FOREVER!!!
