Bleeding Hearts

FOXIE SAYS "JOIN THE BLEEDING HEARTS PARTY"

FIDDLE-PUNK OR PUNK-FOLK-ROCK? TAKE YOUR PICK.

RAVE REVIEWS SCREAMING OUT "DEFIANT LYRICS, BASS LINES THAT SWAGGER RATHER THAN WALK, FRENETIC CREATIVE PUNK THAT WRAPS LOADED LYRICS AROUND FRANTIC INSTRUMENTS FOR A FAST-PACED, SMART LISTEN" (ROOM THIRTEEN).

SOMETHING THAT DEMANDS YOU ATTENTION WHETHER ITS ON YOUR CD PLAYER OR IPOD OR IN A SUMMER FESTIVAL FIELD – IT GRABS YOU BY THE SHORT "N‟ CURLIES AND GETS YOU UP AND MOVIN‟.

 

YEA, THAT‟S WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT BABY "DANCE TO IT, LISTEN TO IT, CAN‟T IGNORE IT!! THE PERFECT FESTIVAL BAND" (BLAGZINE) BLEEDING HEARTS (THAT‟S US) HAVE AN ORIGINALITY ALL OF OUR OWN WHICH HAS HELPED US SUPPORT NAME ACTS AND GET GREAT GIGS, FESTIVALS AND TOURS ALL OVER EUROPE AND AMERICA. I COULD LIST ALL THE GREAT STUFF WE‟VE DONE AND GREAT BANDS WE‟VE PLAYED WITH BUT THAT WOULD JUST BE PLAIN RUDE AND SELF-OBSESSED. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW, VISIT OUR SENSIBLE "PROPAGANDA‟ PAGE ON OUR EQUALLY SENSIBLE WEBSITE. SUFFICE TO SAY, (THIS IS THE PROFESSIONALLY WRITTEN BIT NOW) WE COMBINE AN EXCITING FULL-ON LIVE SHOW WITH MOMENTS OF ACOUSTIC REFLECTION AND AN IMPORTANT CULTURAL MESSAGE WHICH ALSO RETAINS A BIG ELEMENT OF FUN. PHEW.

YEA……..I‟M BANGING THE DRUM BUT IT‟S THE MODEST DRUM OF OUR CELTIC-FOLK-PUNK-ROCK BIRTHPLACE THAT SEES US FUSE OUR SOUND
INTO ONE THUMPIN‟ JUMPIN‟ PARTYIN‟ FOLKIN‟ ROCKIN‟ BOUNCE OF A BASH THAT SHOUTS "PARTY‟. OK, THAT‟S NOT SO MODEST BUT YOU GET
THE GIST…………. SMILE YOU‟RE ON CAMERA.

LATEST ALBUM: "FOLK "N‟ GLORY"

 


THE BAND‟S LATEST STUDIO ALBUM FOLLOWS ON IN THE RAW GARAGE-STYLE RETRO-TRADITION OF PREVIOUS STORMERS LIKE "FLY IN THE FACE OF FASHION‟ AND "THE MERCHANTS OF PROPAGANDA‟. BUT THIS TIME IT‟S DIFFERENT. NO RECORDING STUDIO. NO FRILLS. STRAIGHT
THRU‟ THOSE HOT TUBES TO THE MULTITRACK. RECORDED LIVE IN A ROOM, 1.2.3.4 LET‟S GO, AND LET‟S SEE WHAT WE GET. SPILL, PASSION,
POWER, DYNAMICS AND GREAT SONGS, SO SAY US. SAY "I‟. WE‟RE TRYING TO PROVE THAT YOU DON‟T NEED AN L.A. STUDIO TO DO IT PROPER – JUST GREAT SONGS.

  GOING FOR BROKE, GOING FOR RETRO AND RE-CREATING THAT VIBE AND ENERGY WE ALL LOVE SO MUCH ABOUT THOSE ORIGINAL RECORDINGS
OF THE 60‟S AND 70‟S. THAT‟S WHAT "FOLK "N‟ GLORY" IS ALL ABOUT. THAT, AND A PEEK INSIDE THE LIVING ROOMS OF THE MODERN WORLD TO
DELIVER A KNOCKOUT BLOW ABOUT THE WAY WE LIVE. QUESTIONS NOT ANSWERS. SONGS NOT SPEECHES. DANCING NOT GLUM FACES.
DRINKING NOT SLEEPING. ACTION NOT WORDS.
A SWIFT BUT ENJOYABLE VISIT TO OUR "FIDDLE-PUNKY VILLAGE WHERE THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES AND THE TUNES MAKE YOU DANCE" (BRUM BEAT).
 

YUP, STILL PACKIN‟ A PUNCH AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, DELIVERING SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM THOSE COMMERCIALLY DRIVEN SIGNED
BANDS, WHO CAN‟T REMEMBER WHERE THEY COME FROM OR WHY THEY DO IT ANYMORE. FOR BLEEDING HEARTS IT‟S ABOUT HONESTY, SWEAT,
TOIL AND A BIG DOLLOP OF FUN. PARTY ON AND TURN IT UP LOUD.
