Lonely Starts & Broken Hearts
Left Alone

Left Alone's Hellcat debut combines a mixture of musical influences from Rancid and the Clash to Operation Ivy, Swingin Utters, and Elvis Costello. From the punk driven title track "Lonely Starts and Broken Hearts," to the the heavily ska-inspired "Another Feeling," to the homage to Elvis' car in "My 62," Left Alone pours every ounce of creative energy and emotion into this album.

To this band the idea of Do-It-Yourself is not something to follow, it's in their nature. They do everything, from booking their own shows, making their own merchandise, to even starting a record label to release their recordings.

On 'Lonely Starts & Broken Hearts', the band delivers a tightly sealed package of punk that plans to explode within seconds of hitting the play button.

Wicked punk!

I first heard about Left Alone from the 2005 Warped Tour Compilation with their track "By My Side", a lovely track that I really enjoyed. I became very interested in Left Alone, so I bought this album. What I like about this album is that each song is different and has a different tune. Elvis Cortez sings sad songs about relationship troubles and upbeat tunes about true love, creating a really wonderful album. I really recommend it.
