Noticia triste la que nos ha llegado de la mano de The Pains of Being Pure at Heart porque la banda estadounidense ha anunciado que se han separado oficialmente.
Vía instagram y a través de Kip Berman, único componente original de la banda que quedaba, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart han anunciado que se ha separado y precisamente Kip Berman ha anunciado que a partir de ahora se va a centrar en otro proyecto musical que lleva le nombre de The Natvral. A continuación el comunicado:
My life has changed radically from the time I started Pains with Peggy, Alex and (soon after) Kurt in 2007, and I’ve decided to focus on a new project @the_natvral.
Pains was a distinct moment in my life. I started the group when I first moved to New York and completed our last record, “The Echo of Pleasure,” shortly before my daughter was born and I moved to Princeton, NJ. From that time forward, I never really felt the same – and the music I was creating didn’t feel the same either.
But this is good, both for my heart and my music.
I know some of you equate “PAINS” with a particular lineup of people, but I’ve always felt that whoever I collaborated with has been “the real band,” because what animated the music was so consistent. But now, that strange something that inspired what we were able to create is absent. What has taken its place feels very different, and I have to express it in a different way.
I’ve spent this past year making a new record, and hope to share it sometime next year. In the meantime, you can hear a cover I did of one of my heroes, Dear Nora, in the bio.
If you are curious as to what other PAINS people are now up to:
