Southern California’s Heartwells have released the new full-length album, The New Old School, that was recorded at Buzzbomb Studios with producer Paul Miner. The New Old School is now available via digital platforms here with a vinyl release set to follow on June 29th with pre-orders available here. Heartwells will be playing a series of SoCal shows this Summer, including an album release show at Long Beach, CA’s Supply and Demand on June 29th.

“Coasted was one of the songs I brought to the band as a demo that I never thought we would turn into an actual song. We decided to take the verses in another direction and thought the element of surprise from the thrash intro would be a nice touch. The song is about the dream of moving to California and the reality of actually living here with expectations. The funny thing is that we never knew how to finish this song until I went home and workshopped the outro. I think it became one of the best songs on the record and captured the vibe of Long Beach, like old school Sublime summer vibes. Guinness wanted to shoot it in a friends backyard and just have a party so we did. Jeff Anton filmed it. That dude is amazing.” (frontman JT)
