My American Heart hits the road in support of latest release

After spending the summer on the Vans Warped Tour, San Diego, California’s MY AMERICAN HEART return to the road October 25 for the fall U.S. "Pure Volume/Rise From the Ashes" club tour in support of their second album HIDING INSIDE THE HORRIBLE WEATHER, released earlier this year via Warcon Entertainment. MY AMERICAN HEART will support Quietdrive on most dates, with headlining shows November 5 at New York’s Knitting Factory and November 19 at Mojoes Coffee House in Chicago.
Hiding Inside the Horrible Weather was produced by James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, Underoath, The Academy Is…) and features the lead single “The Shake (Awful Feeling).” The metaphorically titled disc--implying that beauty inherently lies in all things--is a striking mix of hooky, driving rock, engaging pop sensibilities and introspective acoustic ballads. Here’s a sample of the critical acclaim which the album has garnered so far:

"…My American Heart send the blood pumping and the adrenalin racing on their latest set, Hiding Inside The Horrible Weather…Hiding is awash in strong melodies and irrepressible choruses...the intricacies of the arrangements, layered guitars, shifting rhythms, and supple use of organ move the band far beyond the usual fare found in either the emo or pop/rock scenes…MAH has created an album sure to resonate for years to come."
--All Music Guide

"...striking....For every fragment of aesthetically pleasing aggression [on Hiding Inside the Horrible Weather], there's experimentation on new ground."

"Hiding Inside the Horrible Weather is an innovative second record that overflows with newly acquired wisdom and skill..."
--Synthesis Magazine

"[Hiding Inside the Horrible Weather] has a youthful energy that is contagious."
--Seattle Post-Intelligencer
