The Exploding Hearts were a punk rock / power pop band which formed in Portland, Oregon, United
States in 2001. The band was comprised of Adam Cox (vocals, guitar), Terry Six (guitar), Matt
Fitzgerald (bass) and Jeremy Gage (drums). Despite critical acclaim for their album “Guitar Romantic” and their single “Modern Kicks”, the band is probably best known for the tragic van accident in July 2003 which killed Cox, Fitzgerald and Gage.
