Candy Hearts (Unplugged)

It’s been less than half a year since we last caught up with Candy Hearts, but it seems like the band’s already done more than a year’s work. They’ve released their latest album (on cassette nonetheless), toured with Man Overboard, and were most recently featured in AP’s Top 100 Bands You Need to Know in 2012. Needless to say, they’ve been busy, but that definitely hasn’t slowed them down, nor has it made them any less chipper.

While touring through Texas, Candy Hearts not only did an acoustic session with us, but sat down to chat. Below, the band discuss crazy tour nights, the country’s best barbecue, and promise us that a new album is on the way. If you’re not doing so already, Candy Hearts are certainly a group to keep your eye on.

Pick up Candy Hearts’ new album, Everything’s Amazing & Nobody’s Happy.
