Sappy Brooklyn indie pop quartet the Pains of Being Pure At Heart have already released a fantastic self-titled debut this year, as well as a handful of seven-inches, but they're looking to put out even more new material. Unable to stop writing dreamy, heart-wrenching pop songs, the band are dropping the Higher Than the Stars EP this fall.
The EP contains four new tracks and will be released by Slumberland on September 22 with the above cover. If you can't wait that long, the band will also be releasing another single, "Come Saturday," on September 8. That release will feature the B-side "Side Ponytail."
In typical Pains fashion, the band are continuing on with their seemingly never-ending tour activities, with the group slated to play a whole pile of European dates and some in North America. On the Canadian front, the Pains play Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret tonight (July 24), Montreal on September 6 and Toronto on September 7.
