What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, right? Things weren’t too great for Tooth & Nail band Holland when they ran into legal complications from the band’s name, Holland, since another artist already registered it. But now the band who was formerly known as Holland and Somerset before that, will settle with a new name. Welcome: The Lonely Hearts.

"It's cool, easy and a reference to the Beatles," explains bassist Josiah Holland. "You have no idea how relieved we are to have finally found a new name!"

The previous band name, Holland, was chosen because the Vocalist/Guitarist and Bassist of the group are both brothers, Will and Josiah, respectively. Third band member is Yogi who plays drums.

The website domain for the band will also reflect the change.

The Lonely Hearts are currently working on their next studio release and will be mixing the music this week after tracking completed last week.
