The Pains of Being Pure at Heart shares song

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart shares new single, "Eurydice" off their new album Days of Abandon, coming out May 13th on Yebo and Fierce Panda in the UK


Today The Pains of Being Pure at Heart share the anthemic new track “Eurydice,” the second official single from the band’s  third LP titled Days of Abandon, out May 13 via Yebo in North America and via Fierce Panda in the UK/EU on June 2. And in case you missed it,  you can  check out the video for the album’s first single, “Simple and Sure.”
The album was recorded at new Greenpoint studio House Under Magic which is owned by longtime Pains cohort Danny Taylor (ZaZa). Produced by Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, Patrick Wolf, Cloud Boat) and mixed by Charlie Hugall at  London’s Engine Room (Swim Deep, Florence And the Machine), The new record is the band’s most musically sophisticated to date, channeling the gilded pop optimism of bands like Aztec Camera, The House of Love and The Lightning Seeds, while maintaining The Pains’ penchant for earworm melodies and emotional candor.

“This album was a chance to push beyond Belong‘s universal style of songwriting into something that was far more personal and true to my ideals,” says Kip Berman. “I wanted the music to be joyful, lush and full of possibility, even if the subjects were often more painful to confront.”

The album artwork prominently features the work of newly celebrated South Korean artist Lee Jinju’s work The Material of Mind.

The band has announced a full national tour inviting out English band Fear Of Men, as well as Ablebody, to support the album.
