BiographyDiscographyGallery
It started with a desire to play music and to have a good time.

These young musicians came together because they shared an overwhelming need to play music, to create music and to stay true to themselves. It was this need that brought them together, first as friends and then band-mates. The band gave their need form, harnessed it, put it in motion, and soon BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART exploded into live venues with an infectious energetic show that exploited and shocked even the most complacent crowds. The band knew the party had begun.

BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART, a fun loving, carefree and energetic rock band from Canada has but one goal in mind: to deliver an album of epic anthems that will give everyone who hears it an outlet to leave their daily frustrations behind and think about the good times, past and present. Upon one listen to such tracks as “Move Your Body” and “To Be Young,” you will find yourself living (or reliving) the best times of your life.

They say to never take life too seriously and to live for the moment, which is exactly what BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART is all about. Their unique, infectious brand of vintage tinged madness is undeniable, and they deliver a plethora of balls-out rock anthems that are so catchy, they will soon be your new guilty pleasure. This could be best described as a modern day version of Motley Crue meets Journey and guitarist Shred Sean is destined to become one of the most talked about players in the genre with his Yngwie-like licks and bombastic shredding techniques.

If you are not on board after one listen to their appropriately titled Century Media debut album, “Pedal To The Metal”, you will quickly find yourself sneaking onto the bandwagon. The effort was produced by GGGarth (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kiss, Motley Crue, Rise Against, Atreyu, Biffy Clyro, Nickelback, Rage Against The Machine, Testament). The band encompasses pure rock n’ roll excess, which was further displayed as they purchased their own bus and drove it into the ground throughout numerous tours gaining legions of fans at every stop which is where the band caught the attention of Century Media execs with their DIY lazer/light show and undeniably energetic and captivating live performance.

The buzz has even reached overseas, as BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART has already played a sold-out UK headlining tour with Enter Shikari in 2006 as well as a highly successful full European tour with Bring Me The Horizon, Architects and Maroon in January and February 2008. Winter 2008 will see them touring Europe again with I Am Ghost and it won’t be long until this phenomenon invades the U.S. again so be sure get your party pants out so you're completely ready for their global takeover.

It doesn’t matter what your social status is, what clique you are in, where you fit in or how you dress, because at the end of the day we are all people who enjoy the same amenities. BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART has created a universal soundscape for the masses that knows no limitations. Everyone can relate to these tracks in some capacity and it is now up to you to let go, give into your desires and have a good time.

BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART will be causing more then just a stir, they might start a revolution… feel good rock n’ roll is back.
