Heartsounds Begin North American Tour July 7th

Up and coming Bay Area punk ensemble Heartsounds are set to tour North America in support of their sophomore album Drifter which arrives in stores July 26 via Epitaph Records. Drifter maintains all the previous power of the band's celebrated debut Until We Surrender, but proves a noticeable evolution of the band's groundbreaking take on modern punk, a seamless mix of soaring vocals harmonies, unabashed guitar virtuosity and surging hook driven punk rock.

Heartsounds now consists of four permanent members, with founding members Laura Nichol (guitars/vocals) and Ben Murray (guitars/vocals), augmented by new members Trey Derbes (Drums) and Kyle Camarillo (Bass). Drifter was again produced by Zack Ohren with the help of Epitaph founder and Bad Religion member Brett Gurewitz.

"I think that any fans of punk rock, hardcore, or heavy metal will find something to enjoy within the 12 tracks of Drifter," proclaims guitarist/vocalist Ben Murray. "We know our fans will be headbanging and singing along to this record in no time. We hope you are all as excited as we are!"

You can preview the song "Elements" off of the new album Drifter which features Jason Cruz from Strung Out, by going href="http://soundcloud.com/epitaph-records/heartsounds-elements">here>.

Heartsounds will be touring with an assortment of exciting young bands in support including Vancouver pop punks Living With Lions, post hardcore outfit Make Do And Mend, Hostage Calm, The Story So Far, and Hand Guns.
