Rock & soul outfit Jeff Hershey & The Heartbeats have announced a forthcoming punk rock tribute EP entitled “Underground Classics” along with a three-week European tour. Underground Classics is the follow-up release to 2011’s Soul Music: Volume 1, and features renditions of vintage punk rock tracks like Fear’s “I Love Livin’ in the City” and The Misfits’ “Some Kinda Hate.”
The EP will be a vinyl-only release, with a streaming premiere of “Some Kinda Hate” (by Misfits) on May 22nd. Fans can pre-order the 4 song 7” vinyl package at the Siren Records webstore.
Many may remember Jeff Hershey from his days with Vagrant Records punk band No Motiv, where he contributed to the release of three full-length records during the early-mid 2000s.
In addition to announcing a new release, Jeff Hershey & The Heartbeats are headed overseas for a three-week tour of Europe, including stops in Paris, Berlin, and Madrid. The tour kicked off this past Wednesday, May 15th, and will finish up on June 9th in Levden.
