“Our Forbidden Country” Your Heart Breaks

Indie rock/folk band Your Heart Breaks announce their new album and share lead single “Our Forbidden Country.” The single is the first offering from the upcoming Drone Butch Blues LP, a queer concept album based off historic and contemporary writings of GLBTQUI authors and front person Clyde Petersen’s interwoven personal narrative. Drone Butch Blues LP is out 4/19 via SofaBurn (vinyl/CD pre-order here).

Drone Butch Blues is a queer concept album based on the writings of historic and contemporary GLBTQI authors. With a focus on stories surrounding queer community, Drone Butch Blues touches on topics of secret and forbidden love, sex with strangers, the lives of hustlers, the impact of AIDS on homosexuals, historic events and rebellion all interwoven with the personal narrative of Clyde Petersen. Striving to examine the contemporary gap between generations of queers and their elders, Petersen turns to written materials to find buried remnants of gay culture and creative vibrant humans, lost to the plague of AIDS. What emerges from this exploration is Drone Butch Blues, the 9th full-length album from a twenty-year career as Your Heart Breaks.

Drone Bitch Blues was produced by Karl Blau and engineered by Nicholas Wilbur at The Unknown in Anacortes, Washington.
