We're a decent punk rock band.

We haunt the dive bars and DIY basement shows of Toronto, with our heavy but fun brand of punk. Threaded together by frantically catchy hooks, landing somewhere between irony and nihilism, we subvert pop songs into meditations on bar culture, boredom, and scene politics.

Filthy Hearts – Beyond Repair LP Review

Filthy Hearts are a punk band that write the kind of anthemic scream-alongs you’d stumble upon at Fest or Pouzza. Made out of former members of the Larimers, Vice Dolls, Party Like Thieves, and the A-OKs; ‘Beyond Repair‘ shares some semblance to it’s ancestors, but paints a darker picture, touching on alcoholism, depression, and the aftermath of failed dreams.
