Love & Death will release its debut album ‘Between Here & Lost’ January 22nd via Tooth & Nail Records and is available for pre-order at this location: merchdirect.com/loveanddeath
Like the album title suggests, “Between Here & Lost” captures the honesty of light and darkness, beauty and tragedy, good and evil, delivered by a band with intense passion and commitment to the message of its music.
“This record was birthed from trials, tribulations, pain, suffering, anxiety, depression, and drama” states Welch.
“However, we came out on top and the end result is a very real, raw & honest record. We are so stoked for people to hear it! From our opening song ‘The Abandoning’, to our cover of Devo’s ‘Whip it’, to our collaboration with Mattie Montgomery from For Today on ‘I W8 4 U’, It’s an exciting piece of art and the listener will feel the different range of emotions with the lyrics & melodies of each song.”
Love & Death is comprised of Brian “Head” Welch, lead guitarist JR Bareis, bassist Michael Valentine, and drummer Dan Johnson.
Love & Death formed when Welch decided to have open auditions on YouTube in 2009. “I picked the guys and then had a jam session in Phoenix” says Welch.
“Over the last couple of years, there have been a few line up changes as we went through normal growing pains. The current band has been together and touring for a while now and they are a big part of the new music and the future of Love & Death.”
