AMERICAN HEARTBREAK To Release Sophomore Album In April

San Francisco-based quintet AMERICAN HEARTBREAK — co-founded by Billy Rowe, onetime guitarist for JETBOY, and featuring former EXODUS bassist Michael Butler — will release their eponymous second full-length album on April 18 via Liquor and Poker Music. The CD was co-produced by Rick Parker (BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB, SPACE TWINS [WEEZER guitarist Brian Bell‘s side project]) and features “13 tracks of timeless rock n’ roll,” according to a press release. “It proves that while trend-seekers may be fawning over the latest batch of rock “saviors” as if the genre was invented only yesterday, AMERICAN HEARTBREAK is the real deal — a band impervious to fads and driven purely by the desire to play loud, catchy rock.”

Rowe first introduced AMERICAN HEARTBREAK to rock fans via the 1997 EP “What You Deserve”, initially released on Perris Records. After several tribute album contributions and lineup changes, their first full-length, “Postcards From Hell”, surfaced three years later on hometown indie Coldfront Records.

Following a 2001 split-CD with THE LIBERTINES, the group added rhythm guitarist Casey Crenshaw prior to a European tour, during which they recorded a live set that became the foundation of their next release.

2003’s “You Will Not Be Getting Paid” (Perris Records) featured five live songs, five acoustic tracks (including STARZ and CHEAP TRICK covers) and six remixed songs from the “What You Deserve” EP.

After the European releases of “You Will Not Be Getting Paid” and “Postcards From Hell” on People Like You Records in 2004, the group returned to the continent for another tour in early 2005. Back on the home front, they toured the West Coast with BACKYARD BABIES, THE CHELSEA SMILES and CRASH KELLY that summer.

AMERICAN HEARTBREAK will play a series of Western U.S. shows before and after the album’s release, with additional touring to come.
