MOTORBAIKS proudly presents the new CD SOLD YOUR SOUL, which is the second CD from MOTORBAIKS. The official release was January 28, 2008.

The opener Sold Your Soul today is a good indication of the rest of the album. Fine heavy metal. Besides fast and instrumentally challenging songs like Sacrifice and Shout It Out you’ll find headbangers with powerful grooves like Lovestruck, Fascinated, Givin’ It Up and the cover version of Devil Woman. Give Her A Smile and Black & White touch more of the romantic soul and TRANSIT Fans get a special treat with a re-worked version of You Can’t Stop The Fire. Appropriately, the album finishes with Let’s do it, where the heavy rock and roll boils once more.

MOTORBAIKS is the new rock band from TRANSIT guitarist René Baiker, who has written and produced the album SOLD YOUR SOUL.

René is not unknown in Switzerland and can look back on a long musical history with different levels of success. With TRANSIT he was in the charts (best place: 8, Take Your Love, 1988), for example. Lots of tours in Switzerland and surrounding countries, six albums released with three in Japan, for René, TRANSIT was a good vehicle for creating his success. Since leaving TRANSIT in 1993, René has been busy with various bands, applying his craft as a live musician, also engineering and producing other artists in his studio Die Klangfabrik.

René and Canadian musician Don James Ayer met each other in 2000 when Don and his band Fair Haven recorded and mixed their second album at Die Klangfabrik, and the chemistry between them both was immediate. In Canada, Don is a much sought after singer and songwriter. He has worked for many years as a producer, engineer, and live musician with  various bands,  and his experience reflects in his strong powerful voice and rhythmical guitar playing.

In this time, Don immediately sang two songs for the MOTORBAIKS mini CD CAUTION, DON’T BELIEVE, which led to the two musicians working together on the full length SOLD YOUR SOUL. The new record from MOTORBAIKS actually began in 2002 when René and Don started playing live together. The songs were co written and then Peter Haas, a fantastic session drummer, was brought in to fill out the groove. René then played and recorded the guitars and bass.

For MOTORBAIKS, patience and hard work has paid off. SOLD YOUR SOUL has definitely lived up to all expectations, delivering a spirited, groovy and varied album. In 2008  MOTORBAIKS hits the stages again for a live show that defines the fact that real heavy metal is not, and never will be dead.
