LOVEHATETHING is the product of 3 long time friends and their infinite love of heavy, soulful and driving music. Formed in South Central Pennsylvania in 2009, this power trio has swept through the region gaining notoriety as a “Rock’n’Roll Machine.” LOVEHATETHING “hit the ground running” with the release of the their debut album “The Disco Killer,” in less than a year.
In August of 2009, the band began their quest for stardom, playing bars, benefits, car shows, and festivals throughout the Tristate taking advantage of every opportunity available to get in front of eager listeners. Shortly there after, along with their friend Jarred Cannon (of Hierosonic) at the helm as the engineer, the band recorded at Soundmine Studio in East Stroudsburg, PA. The band finished a full length 10 song Rock ‘N’ Roll Monster titled, “The Disco Killer,” in just 8 days. The album was released, and digitally distributed world wide on itunes.com, amazon.com, cdbaby.com, and digstation.com. It is also in regular rotation on WRZO 102.9 The Razor and has since been put into rotation on several online radio stations. In July of 2010 the band was selected as one of eight finalists in the nationwide Reprise Rivalry Competition sponsored by sonic bids.com. LOVEHATETHING also maintained a 5 star rating on garage band.com. Everyone who hears, “The Disco Killer”, seems to agree that there is a very bright future ahead for these original, aspiring and inspiring musicians.
LOVEHATETHING LIVE! As an attendant of a live show, one could expect to sit comfortably in their seat sipping beverages, and socializing with other onlookers. However, as an attendant at a LOVEHATETHING show, there will be no sitting, sipping, or socializing!!! There is only a flurry of Rock ‘N’ Roll fury characterized by raging guitars, methodic rhythmic , and melodic vocals with a harmonic infusion.
LOVEHATETHING has an impressive array of endeavors for the latter part of 2010. Inspired by the deployment of their manager, Eric Shields, to serve in Iraq, the band is orchestrating a benefit for soldiers serving their country abroad. Groundwork for the benefit is coming together and it is expected to be in place by October 2010. Filming of 2 music videos are also in the works and will be released before the New Year. The band is currently writing the next album and is expanding its Live Showcases to neighboring regions yet this year!
