Wir sind Helden Wir Sind Helden, left to right: Mark Tavassol, Jean-Michel Tourette, Pola Roy, and Judith Holofernes. Background information Origin Berlin, Germany Genres Alternative rock Pop rock Post-punk Years active 2001–present Labels EMI Website Official site Members Judith Holofernes Pola Roy Mark Tavassol Jean-Michel Tourette Wir sind Helden (German pronunciation: [viːɐ̯ zɪnt ˈhɛldn̩], German for "We are heroes") is a German Alternative Rock band from Berlin, established in 2001 in Hamburg. The quartet is composed of lead singer Judith Holofernes and musicians Pola Roy, Mark Tavassol, and Jean-Michel Tourette. The group's style has often been considered similar to that of the Neue Deutsche Welle, with songs such as "Denkmal" and "Nur ein Wort" evoking New Order. The group's name is partly inspired by the German version of David Bowie's "Heroes".[1] Contents 1 Background 1.1 International activities 2 Discography 2.1 Studio albums 2.2 Singles 2.3 Other releases 3 Awards 4 References 5 External links Background In 2002, Wir sind Helden broke onto the German music scene with their first song "Guten Tag" , which reached #53 on the German singles charts and got significant airplay on MTV Europe, even though the band did not have a record deal. The band's debut album Die Reklamation (2003) entered the German album charts at number six and eventually reached number two. Their popularity was significantly increased when Judith Holofernes appeared on television on the Harald Schmidt Show, which led their small club tour to sell out immediately. Their second album Von hier an blind (2005) entered at the top of German and Austrian charts and remained in the top ten for twenty weeks. Wir sind Helden often supports other bands by giving them the opportunity to open at their concerts. In particular, Astra Kid and the two-man-band Olli Schulz und der Hund Marie had significant exposure during tours with Wir sind Helden.[citation needed] In late 2006, singer Judith Holofernes and drummer Pola Roy took time off from the band to have a baby. The band returned in 2007 with the album Soundso and a series of concerts across Germany. They have since announced another break following their 2008 tour (with the opening act Tele) and the conclusion of their recording contract with EMI.[2] Their latest album, Bring mich nach Hause, was released on 27 August 2010. The lead single for the album, Alles was released on 6 August.[3] International activities Wir sind Helden played at three sold-out concerts in London, United Kingdom in October 2006, November 2006 and September 2007. In 2007, the iTunes Music Store released the first in a series of "iTunes Foreign Exchange" singles, in which two bands of different nationalities cover one of the other band's songs. The first single features +44 and Wir sind Helden. +44 provided an English language cover of "Guten Tag" while Wir sind Helden did a retro-sounding, German cover of the +44 single "When Your Heart Stops Beating". Also included are the original tracks done by both bands. Also in 2007, their song "Endlich ein Grund zur Panik" was featured in the soundtrack to the EA Sports video game, FIFA 08, and another song "Guten Tag" was in "FIFA Football 2004".
