Thank you all for your support during this tough time. We have not in any way called it quits and are still actively making music. We are hitting the road with Lydia Loveless for a couple shows in November and we are grateful for everything!

Joseph M. Moore, aka “Joey Blackheart”, 36, of Columbus, Ohio, a former resident of South Shore, Kentucky, passed away July 9,
2014 in Columbus, Ohio.
We don't know how describe our heartbreak over our bandmate and best friend passing. Joey was our brother, and was loved by many more in our community for his friendly, joking attitude and tendency to draw people in, as well as how giving he was when anyone needed help.
We will feel his absence acutely, both as friends, and as bandmates.

Ever get to play with one of your idols? Paul Collins is a power pop legend, a cult favorite since the mid 70s, performing in bands like The Nerves and The Breakaways, whose songs have been covered by Blondie to Cat Power to Green Day. The Girls! will perform with Paul Collins Beat on June 20th at Ace of Cups.

Our friends over at CD102.5 here in Columbus have been gracious enough to add our song 'Keys To Your House' to their playlist recently and have already given it a couple spins! If you wanna hear it, text them at 68683 to request it, or you can call at (614) 221-1025. As the Ramones said: 'We want the airwaves, baby!' Well, either the airwaves or booze... Preferably both...

We are Columbus, Ohio power pop. Our influences are Paul Collins, Blondie, The Go-Go’s, Exploding Hearts, 60s girl groups - stuff like that. The Girls! write melodic songs about ex-boyfriends and drinking. We like to go to Ryan's house and drink, play music, do the dishes, clean the house, and talk about boys.
