"They’ve set out to recreate a period in time and have done it in stunning measure." – The Creative Shed

Featuring members of Blondie, The Cars, The Chesterfield Kings, and The Romantics, The Empty Hearts were founded in 2013 to put their own spin on the classic rock and roll we all know and love.

The Empty Hearts, made up of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer Clem Burke (Blondie), two-time Grammy nominee and MTV Video of the Year Award winning guitarist Elliot Easton (The Cars), bassist Andy Babiuk (The Chesterfield Kings) and lead singer/rhythm guitarist Wally Palmar (The Romantics), have parlayed a combined lifetime of rock ‘n’ roll into their self-titled 429 Records debut, a sterling collection of influences that include ‘50s American roots rock ‘n’ roll, ‘60s British Invasion and ‘70s garage-punk that is anything but retro, rather a refreshing return to core musical values.

The Empty Hearts (a name coined by Little Steven from his secret list of unused band names), is a band who sound like musical cohorts—all came of age in the 70’s and 80’s music scenes and play by a DIY punk rock code of ethics.  A self-proclaimed band of “rock and roll lifers," the chemistry clicked immediately--they are all connected having come together as a band of friends.

The Empty Hearts is a raucous collection of tunes with each player’s rock ‘n’ roll stripes on display— a bracing sound shaped by influences which span decades and include ‘50’s American roots rock ‘n’ roll, 60’s British invasion and 70’s garage-punk.
