Punk/rockabilly outfit Hard Fall Hearts formed in March 2008, after frontman Bryan Kelly captured the attention of drummer Eli Rinek and upright bassist Ian Watson aka “Rocket.”
Their debut album Last 24 Hours was released in October 2008, followed up by To All Believers (Double Barrel Records) in March 2010. After a six-week tour of Europe and the western U.S. in early 2011, Watson was replaced on bass by Kyle Olson aka “KRO.”
June 2012 was spent on a four-week tour of Europe, after which the band began recording a new full-length planned for release in 2013.
