Did you miss The Pains of Being Pure At Heart's debut? Well, dope slap to you if you did, because it kicked off a great new band’s career! These guys have had a spectacular run with their February 2009 debut, features in Spin, Rolling Stone and NME, Best New Music from Pitchfork, as well as a U.S. and European tour.

This band is “all that and a bag of chips” because not only have they been touring like crazy people and garnering boatloads of media attention, they've been working on new songs for their March 2011 disc, Belong. We’ve already heard the excellent single
"Say No To Love,” and now they’ve let loose with the infectious "Heart In Your Heartbreak," backed by “The One.”

With tunes like these, Belong promises to be a sonically ambitious bass heavy, kick-ass disc. In short, the previews from the new album are chunky power-pop, with sweeping synths, jangly guitars, thumping killer bass lines. It's a bold, loud and confident preview, that’s sure to get you geared up to go out and put a little “Pains” in your life, or at least your music collection.

In case you were a dope slap recipient on the first disc, don’t make us break out the can of whoop ass again! Check out the new track below, buy Belong, and catch The Pains of Being Pure At Heart live on their major spring tour.
