The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are an American indie pop band from New York City, formed in 2007. The band currently consists of core member Kip Berman (vocals, guitar), Christoph Hochheim (guitar), Jessica Weiss (keyboards, vocals), Jacob Sloan (bass) and Anton Hochheim (drums). Former members and contributors include Peggy Wang (keyboards, vocals), Connor Hanwick, Kurt Feldman and Alex Naidus.

Their first album was a self-released EP, released in 2007. The release was distributed by Painbow – a record label created by the band. Their debut self-titled full-length album was released on February 3, 2009 via Slumberland Records, a personal favorite label of the band's. Their name comes from an unpublished children's story of the same title. A friend of Kip Berman wrote the story, which revolves around "realising what matters most in life – things like friendship and having a good time". The group's self-titled album peaked at number nine on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. In 2009, they released Higher Than the Stars, their second EP. The band's second record, entitled Belong, was released in 2011.

In a December 2013 interview the band revealed they were in London putting the finishing touches on their new album, Days of Abandon, which was released in May 2014.
