Punk is where the Heart is

Nothing like a little good old punk rock to liven your mood after yet another dismal valentine's day, right?  Teenage Heart, rockin out of Asheville North Carolina, are here to mend that damaged psyche.  These five guys are silly, heavily tattooed dudes who want nothing more than to give you a great show, and maybe even make you laugh a little along the way.  Inspired by the likes of Blackflag, Facetoface, The Descendents and Alkaline Trio, Teenage Heart does their very best to bring you enjoyable tunes with a little post-teen angst that are short, sweet and to the point with sometimes downright ridiculous lyrics.  Unfortunately this great little band has recently broken up to pursue other musical heights, which I realize sort of makes this 'new' post obsolete... I just figured people outside of the general Asheville area should hear these guys and enjoy some good tunes.  Here are three great tracks from their one and only album, Friends with Benefits, which is available on iTunes for a mere $7.

So help support this great unknown band, check their album, dig their MySpace, and if you ever happen to be visiting Asheville stop by Empire Tattoo, most of them work there and produce some amazing artwork!
