This is an explanation of how a new project came to be. Sometimes we need press releases and we need to articulate all sorts of details. Here, we’d like to simply state the facts about Heartbeats.

The idea was to make a few demos and to build an album strictly in the studio around the initial recordings.

The culprits: Ryan Carrera (Alarmists) and Eric Lovold (Alarmists), Chris Dillon (The Arms Akimbo),and
Jason McGlone (The Fontanelles). We made demos, made full recordings at several studios, including Fuzzy Slippers, Instrument Control, and Essential Sessions. As soon as the recordings took on their own identity, a live band was born.

This first single is being released on Christmas day for charity. Last year, the public came out and supported
a charity show for a few artists that lost their work in a robbery. This year, we’d like to give it back by
allowing the public to download this song for free, or to optionally donate to the charity organization Rock
the Cause in any amount desired.

“Radio Distraction” is the first single. More to come in 2012.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas.

lyrics

It was the loneliest of sounds
It was a lot of things we found
Well you said it right
Want to feel alive
But the feeling
You know could never survive
Was the loneliest of sounds
I wish I could tell you about the way things used to happen
She's so "underneath the covers" with
the radio as her distraction
Come on be a victim I predict another overreaction
She's still waiting for a lover I don't care if it happens at all
At the beginning of it all
It wasn't ever what we thought
Well are you gonna fake it?
Are you gonna take it?
Are we gonna make it home?
I bet you thought that I forgot
I wish I could tell you about the way things used to happen
She's so "underneath the covers" with
The radio as her distraction
Come on be a victim I predict another overreaction
She's still waiting for another I don't care if it happens at all
It was the loneliest of sounds
It was in everything we found
Well you said it right
Want to feel it all
Want to beat
But it's alright
Was the loneliest of all
