The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart have a new record titled Belong coming on March 29th via Slumberland Records. You don’t have to wait until then to listen to it though because they are streaming the entire album on their website right now. The band hooked up with producer Flood (Depeche Mode, U2, Smashing Pumpkins,many more) and mixer extraordinaire Alan Moulder(Blond Redhead, My Bloody Valentine, more)  to create an album quite different from their debut outing.  They still have the same Pains’ style, but they sound more serious and bigger. As if they want to reach an audience beyond the indie-sphere and they may just do that. Check it out for yourself.

Shortly after the album drops, they’ll take it out on the road for an extensive US tour. The first show of the tour will be in Philadelphia on Thursday, March 31st at the First Unitarian Church with Twin Shadow and Philly’s own Creepoid. Tickets for the show can be found HERE.
