LOVE GANG: new album streaming in full!
Denver-based 70s heavy rockers LOVE GANG team up with Glide Magazine to premiere their sophomore album “Meanstreak”, as it releases this Friday 27th January on Heavy Psych Sounds.
LOVE GANG is a throwback to the golden days of rock ‘n roll when the amps were loud, the hair was long and the drugs were cheap. Propelled by wailing guitars and overdriven organs, the foursome holds nothing back, each song going full-speed ahead full of blues boogie and hard-hitting rock’n’roll. “As if the raucous spirits of Motörhead, Jethro Tull and Deep Purple had got together for a big old knees-up,” praises Classic Rock Magazine, and you’d better believe it!
FULL ALBUM PREMIERE: Love Gang Rivals 70s Rock Heavyweights On Mighty ‘Meanstreak’ Album
From Acclaimed producer (Sheryl Crow, The Dandy Warhols, Blitzen Trapper, Emmylou Harris)
Andrew of the band confides, “I was never afraid of dying until I had a child. Fading Moon, on the surface, seems like a love letter to my two baby boys. But, in reality, it’s a means to comfort myself from my overwhelming fear of leaving them behind when I die. When pure and intense love is experienced, there is a level of pain associated with it. I’ve never been more happy, but I’ve never been more scared. So this seemingly sweet, folky ditty is really a pretty dark, anxious proclamation.” Musically, the hypnotic guitar riff of “Fading Moon” was written when Dirk was in hospice care, visiting his sick mother. Performing for her brought her joy and “Fading Moon” also represents the magic and healing nature of music. Thanks for your consideration,
