Casualties of Cool - “Flight” (Casualties of Cool, 2014)

Via Popdose:

Imagine being catapulted through a portion of the ’80′s, picking up four fine musicians and then landing around 1966, ’67. That would be my short description of The Empty Hearts, a new band consisting of 4 giants from the ’80′s – Wally Palmar of The Romantics on lead vocals, Elliot Easton of The Cars on lead guitar, Andy Babiuk of The Chesterfield Kings on bass and Clem Burke, the wonder-drummer of Blondie behind the kit. This band has the perfect melding of ’60′s riffage, ’80′s raw cool and modern production quality to help it all along.

This definitely looks like something to check out.
