N.Y. popsters, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart recently announced plans for a new single called "Say No to Love" which will come out digitally this June 8th on Slumberland records. The band is also set to embark on a 2week U.S. tour this summer with supporting acts Surfer Blood and Hooray for Earth.
In other band news, the Pains are planning the recording of their sophomore LP, the follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed self-titled debut.
Here's what Kip from the band had to say in a message from the group ..."In many ways, "Say No to Love" is pretty Pains-by-numbers. It's got 3 chords, a fuzz pedal and lots of feelings. But instead of recording in the basement like we did for our album and both EPs, we recorded in an actual studio (Stratosphere Sound in New York). We tried hard to make it sound, as Peggy would say, "life affirming" and we're pretty excited about how it turned out. We hope you are too.
