The Empty Hearts Premiere New Video And Announce More Tour Dates


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:

The Empty Hearts is available worldwide on 429 Records.

The Empty Hearts (a name coined by Little Steven from his secret list of unused band names), is a band who sound like musical cohorts who came of age in the 70’s and 80’s music scenes and play by a DIY punk rock code of ethics. A self-proclaimed band of “rock and roll lifers”, the chemistry clicked immediately–they are all connected having come together as a band of friends.”…they’re just having a good time playing some tough, swaggering rock & roll that’s also a lot of fun and a look back at their younger days as fans, and if you have any taste for this era of music, this will give you a big ol’ grin and make you wanna move, and there’s nothing wrong with that.” Allmusic
