The Heartbreaks For Issue 6

6 March 2019

Have you ever been to a date in a cemetery? Joseph has. Twice. Apparently it did not go that well. He is still unsure why. We smiled and wanted to touch his hair. This was just one of many great stories we heard on the day we spent with British alternative rock band The Heartbreaks in a cemetery in London on a warm winters day in March. And the band's ability to tell stories is definitely reflected in their upcoming album "We May Yet Stand A Chance."

The charming boys of The Heartbreaks met with Editor-in-Chief Cecilie Harris for a photo shoot and an interview which is featured in our latest issue "The Truth About Boys". Making up the band we have front man Matthew Whitehouse with his model looks, drummer Joseph Kondras with hair we envy, Ryan Wallas the embodiment of rock and roll and the king of cool Christopher 'Deaks' Deakin. The talented lads from Morecombe have caught the eye of many within the music industry from Morrissey and Hurts who they have supported on tour as well as having Bono as a fan. They also have fans in the fashion world withh the likes of Hedi Slimane to Christopher Bailey.

The band chose the location of the day to link in with their upcoming album "We May Yet Stand A Chance" which has the boys pulling a coffin, symbolizing the death of everything the boys hold dear. Dark right. Yet the lyrics are as interesting as the boys as they talk us through it in the interview, which is featured in issue 6.

With a unique sound and a keen sophisticated rock and roll style these boys fit together on and off stage effortlessly. The Heartbreaks edgy single "Hey Hey Lover" is out now, and their latest album "We May Yet Stand A Chance" is available from 19th of May. So keep your eyes peeled for the handsome boys who are touring at the moment with We Are Scientists.

Boys by Girls Issue 6 "The Truth About Boys" is available in shops now.
