Heartless Bastards have just released a track called “Black Cloud” off of their forthcoming album Restless Ones.
Restless Ones is the group’s fifth studio album and will be released June 16 via Partisan. They will also be touring North America in support of the new album in June and July. The Ohio-based band already played at a SXSW 2015 party sponsored by Rdio. They released the music video for their first single from the record, “Gates of Dawn,” recently and have already decided to follow up with another track.
“Black Cloud” will be a great summer song from Heartless Bastards, with a mid-tempo beat and a relaxed garage band sound that would be perfect for hanging out by the pool or playing at a party. The lyrics of the song are almost anthemic, with lines like “there’s no use in trying to be, to be, who you want me to be, to be.” Listen to the new track below.
