The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Touring With Twin Shadow

    With the Pains of Being Pure at Heart releasing their sophomore effort, Belong, this spring, it would only make sense that they’re hitting the road in support of that project, right? Of course it makes sense, damn it, as that is exactly what these four music blog darlings are doing in April. They won’t be going it alone, either, as the Pains will share the bill with Twin Shadow and, for a few shows, Catwalk. It will be interesting to hear how the Pains integrate their new, cleaner tracks in a live set with their slightly fuzzy old material.
