The Struts share Valentine’s Day anthem

“How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart)” is available now

Hot off the release of their Big Machine Records debut album, Pretty Vicious, The Struts are back with a new track that takes a refreshingly mellow detour for the usually boisterous Brit rockers.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, “How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart)” is an achingly sincere song that ruminates on handling a heart with care when caution is all you have to offer. The crafting of the track was a labor of love for the quartet, with thoughtful lyrics that are highlighted by iconic instrumentation and lush BGVs.

“’How Can I Love You (Without Breaking Your Heart)’ is a brutally honest song that takes me right back to that moment when the phrase came to me,” frontman Luke Spiller explains. “The lyric was labored over for a long time, which I hope people will appreciate.”

The new release follows a continuing streak for the platinum-selling band atop the SiriusXM Alt Nation Alt-18 Countdown, where their current alternative radio single, “Pretty Vicious,” has been the No. 1 most requested song for three weeks running.

Catch The Struts on the road this spring as they support Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators and Queens of the Stone Age, before continuing their headlining tour in the States, with select festival stops at Lovin’ Life, Shaky Knees, and Welcome to Rockville. Additionally, Luke Spiller is set to perform at the 2024 Love Rocks benefit show at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on March 7th, alongside The Black Keys, Hozier, Nile Rogers, Tom Morello, and more.
