New York based indie pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have announced they will released a new EP titled 'Hell', on November 13 via Painbow Records.
The band have also aired th EP's first track, a cover version of James' 1993 classic "Laid", featuring vocals from Jen Goma.
About the EP, band member Kip Berman said: A couple months ago I posted a demo for the song “Hell” and some people said, 'why don’t you record that for real?' So we went over to my friend Danny’s studio (House Under Magic) and recorded the track along with two cover songs - “Ballad of the Band” by Felt and "Laid" by James as a way to mark our forthcoming tour of Japan. The latter has lead vocals by Jen Goma, who sang on our last album and also performs with the excellent pop contortionists, A Sunny Day in Glasgow. The Felt song is really the UR-Felt song, the wry articulation of what Felt is most famous for - not being an eighth as famous as they ought to be.
