(New Damage Records / Failure by Design Records)
Heavy Hearts is comprised of a handful of Canada’s best rock and roll explorers. They’ve poured over every facet of the genre in search of inspiration; plunging through the depth of late 90’s era post-hardcore and into the hook-laden heights of mid-aughts era emo and pop rock and have settled into a vein of their own. It’s stylistically similar to bands like Balance & Composure and Safe To Say in the way that it effortlessly bounces between genres. One minute they can be in the throws of some of the incredible emo-tinged pop rock and the next is some throat shattering and cathartic post-hardcore.
