HEARTS FAIL hail from Texas/USA and have been long time favourites here at STROBELIGHT RECORDS. So we’re tremendously proud to announce FIRES IN THE NIGHT, a retrospective overview of the band’s rich and intriguing work so far – but also with a powerful promise of things to come. Not only musically: from early diamonds such as „Wishing Well„, also featured in our NEW DARK AGE compilation series, to their current EP „…Other Blessings“ and a yet unreleased stomper of a song „Victims„. But also with its opulent 20 page booklet full of lyrics, pics and info on the band and their history so far.
If you’re into melodic Post Punk in the tradition of THE CHAMELEONS, THE SOUND or PINK TURNS BLUE and appreciate related bands such as INTERPOL and THE O CHILDREN, FIRES IN THE NIGHT won’t let go of you! It’s not often that a band stays true to themselves in the best sense of the word and shows such a degree of variation at the same time, while all the while keeping such a high level of captivating intensity in their work: both lyrically and musically. In other words: great stuff, people!
