In July 2007 they supported Tonight Is Goodbye on their summer tour along with Death Can Dance and then later that month were featured in Kerrang! magazine in their new music section.

Heartbreak Club

What has become of Heartbreak Club (HBC)? Once a straight-up parody of angst-ridden pop, HBC are rapidly becoming Australia's beacon of hope for Geek Rock; spearheading a new wave of 1990's inspired intelligent, ironic and self-deprecating punk-infused tunes. In doing so, HBC have recorded a new, darker and grittier album that is 'unapologetically melodic; adopting a brutally honest, confessional and grungier tone' than previous efforts, with the band noting their admiration for Weezer, Regurgitator, Blink 182 and Nirvana. They are still geeks, however.

New Empire

There is something that music has the ability to do like nothing else in this world. It can reach right into the human soul and take hold of a person. It can captivate and inspire change, even in the darkest and most unlikely of places. It can break down the walls that we build up within ourselves that have stood strong for years. Where words fail, music has a voice. It sings the songs that we hide within ourselves – a melody that will last forever. It has no borders, and is biased to no language. A gift.
