'Let's Be Still,' the sophomore album from Seattle's The Head And The Heart, will be released on Sub Pop Records October 15th. Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and Buzzfeed have named the new album as one of the most anticipated records of the fall. 'Let's Be Still' follows the 2011 critically and commercially breakout self-titled debut, which has scanned nearly 280,000 copies to date in the US alone, and featured radio hit "Lost in My Mind" which claimed #1 on the AAA chart for three weeks, beating out the likes of Adele, Foster the People and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Virginia native Jonathan Russell and California transplant Josiah Johnson formed the core songwriting partnership of The Head and The Heart after meeting at an open mic night in 2010. The band was rounded out by drummer Tyler Williams, keyboardist Kenny Hensley, vocalist/violinist Charity Rose Thielen and bassist Chris Zasche. That unbridled energy informed their debut album for hometown label Sub Pop, becoming one of the label's best-selling debut releases. In addition to winning fans over in person through their live show, the band charmed audiences through performances on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Show with David Letterman, and legendary Austin City Limits. As NPR put it, the band has, "A natural knack for fortifying melancholic Americana sounds with the bright, powerful structures of pop songwriting...exceptionally well-conceived and their execution nearly flawless."
