Hailing from Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Heavy Hearts is comprised of Justin Glatt (vocals/guitar), Jamie Gorman (bass), Riley Jensen (lead guitar), Joey Demers (percussion), and JJ Sorensen (drums). Hot on the heels of bands like Bring Me the Horizon, Citizen, and Of Mice & Men, Heavy Hearts have been singled out by Alternative Press as one of the top bands leading an emo revival, even with the lacework of their constantly-evolving sound making it impossible to pigeonhole their style.
Bolstered by the warm reception of their 2017 EP "On A Chain," Heavy Hearts have enjoyed success since introducing their debut album "Bliss" in 2016. Infusing unabashed emotional range and rugged lyricism into each new release, Heavy Hearts are fueled by a willingness to experiment; from emo to post-punk, they run the alt-rock gamut.
The massive appeal of their sonic range has seen them play to crowds from North America to the UK and Europe. With features in Billboard and Noisey and time on the road with bands including Silverstein, Balance & Composure, Sights & Sounds, and Glassjaw under their belts, their rapidly growing fan base outside of Canadian borders are an early testament to the band’s commercial potential abroad.
Since their last release, Heavy Hearts are eager to hit the touring circuit. With a new LP slated to drop at the top of 2020, the band are leaning into their post-rock sensibilities, embracing elements of their sound that are wholly Canadian, while retaining the raw vocals and vibrant melancholia that audiences across the globe keep growing to know and love them for.
