That band name makes me think of herpes.
Yes, folks — Southern Lord Recordings has signed Ontario-based Burning Love; the label will release the band’s upcoming sophomore full-length in early 2012.
That album, Rotten Thing To Say, was recently recorded by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at his infamous Salem, Massachusetts-based Godcity studio. Set to be mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side in the coming weeks as the album art is completed and final release details are confirmed, Rotten Thing To Say will see release in late March or early April of 2012.
A press release describes the band as “a group from Toronto with a chip on their shoulder and electric blood in their veins; their output a desperate, venomous and informed rock n’ roll fury that sways and swaggers somewhere between hardcore punk and the darker side of blues gone wrong.”
Did Charlie Sheen write this press release?
“After the sudden demise of the now legendary Cursed, enigmatic frontman Chris Colohan picked right back up where he the band last left us, but this time collaborating with the members of Our Father, comes back to the table with a band that had a decidedly different musical approach and direction,” the press release adds.
“While Cursed was intent on quickly ripping your face off, Burning Love takes that similar approach to new levels, luring you in with infectious hooks and full throttle blues before going in for the kill. Merging the darkness of Poison Idea, the melodic aspects of Queens of the Stone Age and the inspired high energy of the MC5, the attack of Burning Love begins to come into focus,” the release concludes.
Sign me up, fuckeroos. I will be waiting with baited breath for this album — now that I know it’s coming. Fuckin’ a, man. Burning Love. Herpes.
