The Pains of Being Pure at Heart decicded to send us all a little ray of sunshine on this chilly fall afternoon. “Heart in Your Heartbreak” is the official release from the band’s as-yet-untitled sophomore disc, currently slated for March 2011.
The track finds the band adding new sounds and generally not being afraid to, well, rok a little harder. There’s guitar solos and Cars-y keyboards and a rock and roll herky-jerkiness you might not associate with a band who made their name by reaching out to the high school wallflower in all of our hearts.
The band is currently on the road, winding down their fall tour. Dates below:
