Fresh off the release of their new one track, nineteen and a half minute epic ‘Dualistic Nihilist,‘ Bay Area punk band Heartsounds have announced a return to Australia this October.

They will play five shows, stopping in Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne with guests Nerdlinger.

Dualistic Nihilist‘ is not your traditional full-length record, but instead as mentioned a singular near 20 minute long epic – a journey into the depths of mental collapse.

After writing 3 full-length records since the band’s formation in 2009, Heartsounds wanted to challenge themselves with something different – an endeavor more unique and exploratory of uncharted musical territory, combined with the lyrical recreation of a true story revolving around severe mental illness and turmoil.

Sonically, Heartsounds remains true to their roots of ripping fast, melodic punk rock, categorized more specifically by dynamic vocal harmonies, heavy-metal inspired metallic riffs, and tight-knit musicianship. While honoring their past, the band succeeds with venturing into new regions of melody and expression that will surely surprise and please long-time fans of the band.

Dualistic Nihilist‘ is certainly a risk, but one that has resulted in the most emotionally and musically expansive record that the band has ever created – a journey that does not repeat itself nor overstay it’s welcome, but instead showcases a refreshing slice of razor-sharp melodic punk rock free of the confines of a traditional album structure.
