'The Heart Athletes' are a Chester based band formed in 2017 to play original songs about this theatre of cruelty we call life. The name of the band is taken from the writings of the French actor, director, writer and poet Antonin Artaud. (From An Affective Athleticism, 1935). Our first gig was at The Saddle Inn, Chester on Valentines Day, 14th February 2018.
