"Heart Tattoo" on Exclaim! TV
The emotional pop-punkers aren't playing any tricks with this Exclaim! exclusive rendition, as that specific thing in question is the song's subject: a heart tattoo. Musically, they aren't pulling any punches either (except for the punchy, punky drums), as the song gallops along at full-speed despite dropping the electric guitars for a pair of Yamaha acoustics. That the song translates so well to a stripped-down rendition is only made that much more impressive by the fact that it was written in a mere 20 minutes.
Following appearances at TURF and Ottawa Bluesfest, after which this session was performed, the band have two more Canadian appearances scheduled this year, including a date in Vancouver with Brand New and a return to Toronto this September. Find the pair of Canuck dates below, followed by the Exclaim! TV session of "Heart Tattoo."
Canadian tour dates:
09/01 Vancouver, BC – Vogue Theatre (with Brand New)
09/12 Toronto, ON – Hard Luck
