After a succesfull first European tour in the fall of 2012, Jeff Hershey & The Heartbeats will be back in Europe for a new run that will lead them through Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland and Germany. You can expect a good dose of soul music and an incredible live performance from Jeff Hershey and his gang. Soul music with a punk rock attittude! Hershey's latest EP "Underground Classics" prove this solid mix. This new EP is one with punk rock covers by Fear, The Misfits, Agent Orange and Ill Repute.
“Soul music is the people’s music”, explains Hershey. “All we’re trying to do is bring it back to the people, one song, one show, one record, one tour at a time. We made our bones on our live show and it was important to us to capture that raw intensity and also the sonic integrity of those classic soul records. No gimmicks, no tricks. We’re happy that the response has been so positive. This is the music I was born to play and the band I’ve always wanted to front.” With the record already receiving glowing reviews, it seems that the world will soon know what Ventura County has been lucky enough to know already, that if Jeff Hershey and the Heartbeats have any say in the matter, soul music isn’t going out without a fight.
