The Smoking Hearts
There are no dull moments for The Smoking Hearts. Live shows see guitars smashed and drum kits sprawled across stages and it’s not uncommon to find singer Ben Mills is in the back of the venue, on the bar, or hanging from the rafters, coercing the crowd into joining the chaos. Playing with the likes of The Used, Asking Alexandria, Gallows, Death By Stereo, Andrew WK, Black Veil Brides The Smoking Hearts have cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting young bands in the U.K.
The Smoking Hearts are getting ready to show the world they’re back again, the 2013 album Victory! Is a visceral blend of high-energy Rock ‘N’ Roll Punk and Hardcore clocking in at just over the 30 minute mark - a celebration, a testament to The Smoking Hearts' DIY/ 'never say die' approach to life onstage and off. Following the album release through Bomber in the UK, the band were snapped up by US label Bullet Tooth who have released the album stateside and 3Wise who have released it in Australia
“This is head banging, beer-spitting, ear-bleeding Rock ‘N’ Roll at its loudest and proudest... Boasting enough power to raise the dead”
"Equally known for destroying venues as they are for their balls-to-the-wall take on punk rock."
"Their brand of Valient Thorr or Zeke-esque guitar-mangling marks them out as worthy contenders to take Gallows "Kings Of British Punk crown."
“Their incendiary songs and live energy is pure perspiration soaked entertainment to the max. These boys deserve your attention and deserve to be huge.”
“What more could you ask for?”
