The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Preview New LP + Tour Dates


Brooklyn Indie Pop stalwarts The Pains of Being Pure at Heart ready their eagerly anticipated third LP entitled Days of Abandon after two critically-acclaimed records that demonstrated the group’s ability to shift musical registers from bedroom pop daydreams to Alternative Nation anthems.  The album is due on April 22 via Yebo Music.

The album was recorded at new Greenpoint studio House Under Magic which is owned by longtime Pains cohort Danny Taylor (ZaZa.) Produced by Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, Patrick Wolf, Cloud Boat) and mixed by Charlie Hugall at  London’s Engine Room (Swim Deep, Florence And the Machine), Abandon departs from the exaggerated roar and clamor that defined the group’s last record, the Flood-and-Alan Moulder helmed Belong.

The band has announced a full national tour inviting out English band Fear Of Men, as well as Ablebody, to support the album.  The band is also offering a special album pre-order with a purchase of a ticket through Soundrink.com
