In anticipation of the band's appearance at Grand Point North this Saturday, September 13, Villanelles have unveiled a track from that forthcoming album called "Zane's Little Brother," via Soundcloud. They also announced that the record, titled Blue Heart Attack, will be out this fall. All of which is music to fans' ears. Oh, and speaking of music to your ears…
