Album Stream: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Belong

March and April are certainly busy months for Pains, as the kids call them. Their time at SXSW in March is followed by a slot at Coachella in April, all with the release of Belong sandwiched rather nicely between. Unfortunately, the band is playing Tucson the same night Phoenix gets the Arcade Fire, forcing some fans to make a rather trifling decision.

However, one decision we can all agree on is listening to the stream of Belong at Pains' official website.

The album will be preceded by the release of the titular single "Belong" on March 15. Belong is out March 29 via Slumberland.
