The Heartbreaks on tour with Carl Barat
aaamusic | On 15, Oct 2010
Following the release of single ‘I Didn’t Think It Would Hurt To Think Of You’, The Heartbreaks will support Carl Barat on tour across the UK, with dates kicking off tomorrow at Brighton Coalition.
The foursome, originally from Morecambe, formed just over a year ago in May 2009 having bonded over shared passions; Motown, bittersweet romance and the English seaside. All in their early 20s yet with older, more thoughtful heads on their young shoulders, they had the same dream to create a band that really meant something to people.
In only a year, The Heartbreaks have stolen hearts and set pulses racing with their determinedly romantic take on British pop culture. As well as recent One to Watch features in NME and Clash, last year they won the Manchester Evening News award for Best New Band and fans already include DJ Steve Lamacq and Johnny Marr.
The band are currently working on their debut album and will release a new single early next year. The Heartbreaks are Matthew Whitehouse (vocals), Joseph Kondras (Drums), Ryan Wallace (Guitar) and Deaks (Bass).
