((Heavens)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Heavens is what happens when Alkaline Trio becomes Longwave. The new Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) project has none of the pop-punk sound of his other band; now it's just pop-pop. I guess that's what happens when you move from Chicago to Los Angeles.

Skiba says that when working as Heavens he concentrates on bands like Sisters of Mercy instead of bands like The Ramones. Fair enough. There are certainly nice strings and ambient arrangements and lush production all over their Epitaph debut, Patent Pending.

We've also been reminded by several sources that Interpol fans would be into Heavens. But we're not so sure. It sounds just like Longwave to us, for better or for worse.
