Beloved Brooklyn band The Pains of Being Pure At Heart will release the new single “Say No To Love” on June 8th. In support of the release, the band will hit the road for a two week jaunt with Surfer Blood and Hooray For Earth. Dates below.
Lead singer Kip Berman had this to say about the new track. “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.”
The single is intended as a holdover for the band’s sophomore LP, due later this year.
