The Heartbreaks Announce String Version Of 'Hand On Heart'

With strings arranged by the legendary James Banbury of The Auteurs (U2, Depeche Mode, Bloc Party etc.), The Heartbreaks' latest offering is a gorgeous version of the standout track 'Hand On Heart'. Produced and mixed by Tristan Ivemy (Frank Turner, Holloways etc), the song will be available on the upcoming special download edition of the album 'Funtimes'.

This precedes a live acoustic EP - also arranged by James Banbury - out January 14th, which features a selection of b-sides, new material and string quartet re-workings of previous tracks.

Matthew, vocalist of The Heartbreaks explains the motive of the new releases, "We've always had a kind of intrinsic sense of drama, but with the addition of strings we were able to truly articulate a feeling of being widescreen, cinematic. Rather than merely 'sounding big', we wanted to make music that, like those great Scott Walker, REM and Bunnymen records, was melodic, bold, elegiac... Something conceptual that would, even if just for an EP, take our music beyond its usual guitar and bass sound".

James Branbury, who himself as part of The Auteurs in 1993 released the seminal 'Live Acoustic EP' speaks of the new version of 'Hand Of Heart', "A great, emotional song. The build at the end is a tingling moment - always a good reaction when you're working on a track and hearing it over and over again".

The Heartbreaks continue a year of touring with new dates in London and Manchester in November. Having toured the UK in support of their debut album, 'Funtimes', hit a number of summer festivals, and played a series of hysterically received shows in Japan, following a number one airplay single in 'Delay, Delay', the Morecambe four piece return to domestic duties with the following dates, both on sale now. They'll also be heading back to Japan in December for more live dates.

November 

Thursday 1st - London, Camden Dingwalls

Friday 2nd - Manchester, Club Academy
