Listen to Molehill's New Single, "Hearts On Fire"

Chicago progressive indie group Molehill has debuted a new single that embraces a revolutionary spirit. "Hearts on Fire" inspired by the "Euromaidan" protests in the Ukraine (the birthplace of vocalist Peter Manhart's mother), is the title track from the band's forthcoming EP and is rock anthem for the oppressed. 

"The song is about the common people rising up to fight an oppressive regime," says Manhart. "Though the people in this protest were unarmed, the government sent riot police and snipers to kill them, and yet the people’s numbers kept growing until they were finally heard. This song is about the strength of community, sheer willpower, and the resonance of a good and virtuous idea. Though the few in control may try to keep the will of the people down, the masses can change the world if they fight together. With the recent wave of public dissent and protests happening around our country, this seems like an appropriate time to share this song.”

"Hearts on Fire" was produced and engineered by J. Hall and Molehill, and is available for pre-order here. The band will be celebrating the release of the single with a Chicago gig this Friday (the 24th) at Logan Square Auditorium.
