Salt Lake City rockers Heartless Breakers will be releasing their debut full length The Great Give Back on March 10, 2015 via Animal Style Records. Stream “Presence Unknown” here.
Two years, two tours, two EPs, and two cities to call home. The story of Heartless Breakers starts with the demise of guitarist Matt Mascarenas’ former band, Daytrader. Following the breakup and living on the east coast, Mascarenas returned to Salt Lake City where he teamed up with vocalist Chase Griffis and drummer Bryan Lee to form Heartless Breakers. Upon his return the trio began working right away and penned their debut release – the Prescriptions EP. Following its release in mid 2013, the band quickly followed the EP with Lighter Doses a short half-year later. Heartless Breakers then hit the road for two tours of the west coast and Midwest. When they returned home, guitarist Sean Jurewicz joined the band, turning the trio into a four-piece.
Now, two years after the band’s inception, Heartless Breakers is ready to show the world what they’re made of with a full length titled The Great Give Back. The ten-song record is just long enough to give listeners a taste of the band’s style without being too lengthy or intimidating. The result is an easily digestible and exceptionally enjoyable listening experience. The band cites influences such as Taking Back Sunday, Thrice, and The Juliana Theory, but there are touches of Brand New to be found throughout The Great Give Back as well.
