San Francisco based punk rock duo Heartsounds have signed with Epitaph Records.  The band released their debut, Until We Surrender, in 2009 on Creator-Destructor Records.  Guitar/vocalist Ben Murray provides a lengthy explanation driving the band’s decision:

“Epitaph has always been one of our favorite labels, going as far back as to when Laura and I were 13 years old,” Murray adds. “That being said, when Brett Gurewitz emailed us one day expressing interest in Heartsounds, we knew right away that we were the luckiest band on earth! From there, we flew down to LA to meet with everyone at the office, and were treated incredibly well. Everyone at the label is so impressive with their respective positions, and most importantly, they seemed to be genuine fans of their bands! That experience only further solidified our feeling that Epitaph would be the absolute perfect match for Heartsounds. With such an impressive roster of artists, both past and present, as well as years of experience creating the punk rock sound that directly influenced our musical formation, we couldn’t ask for a better home!”

The band plans to release a new album later this year.
