The Smoking Hearts debut album “Victory!” is out TODAY! You can pick up the CD at MerchNow (with FREE poster!) and Best Buy, download at iTunes and Amazon, or stream at Spotify, Rdio, or LastFM.
Fresh off tour with Black Veil Brides and as seen on stage with Bullet For My Valentine, The Used, Asking Alexandria, Gallows, Andrew WK, and many more, The Smoking Hearts have cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting young bands in the U.K.
In fact, Jay and Moose from Bullet For My Valentine recently told the UK press, ”We think everyone should check out The Smoking Hearts this year, they are good mates of ours. A brilliant band, think Motörhead on more speed beating up the Anti-Nowhere League then bumming The Ramones. Seriously, think about that. They have a new album out this year called ‘Victory!’, a definite recommendation.”
Joining the family at Bullet Tooth and having labelmates like Affiance, Throw The Fight, First Blood, Serianna, Death Ray Vision, and more, was important to the band. Calvin Roffey (Bass) commented, "I'm really excited that The Smoking Hearts have joined Bullet Tooth. It's great that we're able to release Victory! with a group of people that understand what we're about as a band, and can help us reach new people that will rock out with us. Really excited to work with the people that have bought us some of of our favourite bands through the years, and together put The Smoking Hearts on the map."
Vocalist Ben Mills also checked in, "Feels good to finally have a US home, and on such a killer label as Bullet Tooth - we had such a great time when we went to the States for SXSW and Houston we have a problem, be good to finally have a release out in the US and Japan, to give us a reason to come back."
