The Empty Hearts, the band featuring members of The Cars, Blondie, The Romantics and The Chesterfield Kings, have announced additional tour dates in November and December on the east and west coasts (see dates below).
The band features Elliot Easton on lead guitar, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Clem Burke on drums, Wally Palmar on vocals, harmonica and guitar and Andy Babiuk on bass. Co-produced by the band and Ed Stasium, The Empty Hearts is a raucous collection of tunes with each player’s rock ‘n’ roll stripes on display- a bracing sound shaped by influences which span decades and include ’50’s American roots rock ‘n’ roll, 60’s British invasion and 70’s garage-punk. The album was recorded at Fab Gear Studios in Rochester, NY and also includes the Faces’ Hall of Fame keyboardist Ian McLagan on Hammond organ and Wurlitzer electric piano. The Huffington Post recently premiered the video for the lead track off the album “90 Miles An Hour Down A Dead End Street.” You can watch it here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mike-ragogna/from-uhf-and-mandatory-fu_b_6130652.html
