The Blackhearts were formed at the tail end of 2010 in the seaside resort of Morecambe in Lancashire. In 2011 the band gigged extensively throughout the North of England at some of the areas most celebrated live music venues as headliners and as support to touring bands.
In 2012 Blackhearts recorded their single She Really Goes with Alan Gregson (Cornershop, Badly Drawn Boy) which offers an indie-pop slant to their sound which enabled the boys to cross over from the rock scene, culminating in the boys being booked for several festivals for the summer.
Well reputed for energetic attacking live performance stabbed with tender lyrical spells, the Blackhearts are one band you’ll want to see again and again.
