Howling Bells to play Hare & Hounds Birmingham

Australian four-piece Howling Bells return with their stunning new album, Heartstrings, set for release on 2nd June 2014. Recorded at London’s Assault and Battery Studios with producers Catherine J Marks and Alan Moulder, the album is preceded by a single, ‘Slowburn’, on 7th April. The band will celebrate the release of the single by hitting the road and stop by Hare & Hounds Birmingham on Tues 3rd June 2014.

Heartstrings is Howling Bells’ fourth album, and the first they have recorded in their adopted hometown of London (the band’s debut, Howling Bells (2006), was demoed in Australia and recorded in Liverpool, while Radio Wars (2009) and 2011’s The Loudest Engine saw the band decamp to Los Angeles and Las Vegas respectively).

Taking a different approach to the making of their previous records, Howling Bells made the recording of Heartstrings an intense process, laying down a track a day for 11 days, resulting in a potent collection of songs.
