The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are to release a new single entitled 'Heart in Your Heartbreak' on December 6th. According to a recent press release, the new single boasts "a melody that could stop hearts at twenty paces, except now the band have gone widescreen, in the most exhilarating way possible. The melodies are that much more euphoric, the guitars that bit bigger, the whole thing just that much more epic. And when the song peaks with Peggy Wang’s jubilant keyboard lines and Kip Berman singing about how “even if she’d stay, you know it’s wrong” you realise all over again just what made The Pains of Being Pure at Heart so special in the first place, a sentiment only reinforced by the star-crossed, swoonsome perfection of B-side ‘The One’, featuring the first recorded sightings of harmonies on a Pains record.”
The band has also announced a gig at the 229 venue in London, taking place on December 2nd. Click here for tickets.
