Heartwells “Doomer”


Southern California’s Heartwells will be releasing the new full-length album ‘The New Old School’ digitally on June 28, followed by the vinyl release on June 29.


The LP was recorded at Buzzbomb Studios with producer Paul Miner (New Found Glory, Atreyu, Thrice, Death By Stereo).

The album’s next single “Eerie” will premiere on June 19 on the Rachael-O-Rama Punk Show, and then hits all DSPs on June 20.

Frontman JT says, “Eerie is kind of a bummer of a song because it wraps up a lot of the personal emotions I was feeling during the height of the pandemic, empty towns, people dying, etc. The light at the end of the tunnel is the perseverance we all had to make it through that time together and the lessons we learned from it. It has a nice balance of catchy vs. melancholy melody. One of my favorite tracks on the record”

Heartwells consist of members: Justin “JT” Tauch (Vox/Guitar), Dave “Moki” Marino (Bass/Vox), Chris “Guinness” Stout (Drums/Vox), Sam “Skwid” Peterson (Guitar/Vox). Bringing in influences from every decade of punk, a little metal and a hair of ska, Heartwells sound is new yet familiar.


Formed in Long Beach’s legendary Gilmore Music, Heartwells are a 4 piece melodic punk band hailing from Long Beach, California. Fueled by a couple of beers, Liquid Deaths, THC Hi-Boys, & some extremely mediocre rounds of golf during a world pandemic.

Heartwells are consistently hitting the pavement playing shows and touring whenever possible. Heartwells might be the new guys on the block but they are prepared to take over the world one crusty bar at a time while helping usher in a new wave of punk rock.

The band 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 29. Tickets available HERE.
