A European tour is currently beingplanned for early 2007. More information will be available in the nearfuture.

As previously reported, American Heartbreak (which features former JETBOYguitarist, Billy Rowe, and former Exodus bassist, Michael Butler) have beenone of rock’s underground heroes for nearly a decade, and with the releaseof their eponymous second full-length, they have aimed to leave theunderground behind and follow in the footsteps of their arena rock idols.The album, which is self titled, was co-produced by Rick Parker, who hadpreviously worked with the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and SpaceTwins, among others.
