Band history

Revolverheld began their career as a supporting act for Donots, Silbermond and Udo Lindenberg. They first started gathering public attention with their song "Rock n' Roll", which then lead to a Coaching Program in the Pop-Academy Baden-Württemberg. Then in 2004 they were signed by the record label Sony BMG. Their first single called "Generation Rock" was released in June 2005 and directly entered the German Charts. The song is featured on the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Together with the producer Clemens Matznick their first album (Revolverheld) was produced, and came out in September 2005.

On 7 July 2007 the band performed at the German leg of Live Earth in Hamburg.

"Helden 2008" was recorded as a dedication to the 2008 Eurocup championship. The single features a music video of the band members dressed as team members, with cut scenes of them performing in the locker room showers.
