Get ready for some heartbreak-healing, through the power of live music.
Jack Barakat's new band WhoHurtYou burst onto the scene back in June, and now they're preparing to make their live debut.
WhoHurtYou's first live show is set to happen November 26 in Los Angeles, after which they'll be jumping on The Maine's Mirror Tour for two additional shows in Anaheim on November 27, and San Diego on November 29.

WhoHurtYou are yet to announce the release date of their upcoming EP 'Stages', but it would be safe to assume they'll be releasing more new music before November (otherwise these are going to be very short sets).
Speaking to Rock Sound about his new musical project which he's been using as a form of therapy, Jack shared that with bandmate and collaborator Kevin Fisher, WhoHurtYou are planning on releasing an EP.
"I think it’s important for us to take people on this journey of what we are calling ‘Stages’," shared Jack. "The EP is going to be called ‘Stages’. It’s going to cover everything that you go through during a break-up: anger, guilt, jealousy, loneliness. It’s going to a special journey for people who are going through these things, and hopefully help them in the way that it has helped us."
When asked if 'Stages' will take the form of an emotional handbook of sorts, to help others navigate the complicated landscape of an emotional break-up, Kevin responded "that’s bang on. We want it to be that for other people, because that’s what it was for us."
Jack added "The cool thing is that our situations were different, so I think there is going to be a song for everyone on here. There are songs that show both sides of a break-up, and I think that’s important. Ultimately these aren’t just our stories - these are things that absolutely everybody has been through."
