The Heartbreaks Release Special 2012 Xmas Cover Song As Free Download

The Heartbreaks round off an excellent 2012 with a very special Christmas cover song 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)'. The band are offering this to fans as a free download which you can check out from the link at the bottom of the page.

Still riding high from this year's highy praised LP "Funtimes", the band are set to release a brand new EP, 'Hand On Heart', on February 4th. The Heartbreaks latest offering is out February 4th and features a selection of newly recorded material with strings arranged by the legendary James Banbury of The Auteurs (U2, Depeche Mode, Bloc Party etc.)

Produced and mixed by Tristan Ivemy (Frank Turner, Holloways etc), The Heartbreaks latest offering is out February 4th and features a selection of newly recorded material with strings arranged by the legendary James Banbury of The Auteurs (U2, Depeche Mode, Bloc Party etc.)

Matthew, vocalist of The Heartbreaks explains the motive of the new release, "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.

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 will be heading back to Japan in December for more live dates, before heading to Europe early in 2013.
