The Pains of Being Pure at Heart release new single and announce summer tourdates; how cute!

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are greeting the spring with a smile and a single, not to mention a tour beginning in June with Surfer Blood and Hooray for Earth. Their newest single, “Say No to Love,” is out via Slumberland June 8 (though copies will be sold from the start of the US tour, June 3 — on sea foam green vinyl, no less). “Say No” isn’t a far cry from the POBPAT repertoire that precedes it, with the exception of the fact that the single was recorded in a professional studio as opposed to the basement setting of their two EPs and self-titled debut. Don’t let that scare you, though — The Pains think pretty highly of it, and how could anyone with so earnest a name lead you astray? According to the band, after the tour they’ll be returning to New York for work on a second full-length. Now go to the shows and get that sea foam green vinyl!

“Say No to Love” tracklisting:
A. Say No to Love
