The return of death punk: Love Equals Death release a history of their material, including B-sides on Halloween
The California death punk cult band released “The Hour Of Resurrection” on 29th October and the single “At War” on 29th September.
Petaluma, Bay Area. In sunny California, four punk rockers founded a band that would be anything but sunny: On Halloween 2003, Love Equals Death was born, blending typical 90s skate punk with Misfits style horror punk. Their 2006 album ‘Nightmerica’ was released on Fat Wreck Chords and had the band touring with names like TSOL, Avenged Sevenfold, Tiger Army, No Use For A Name, Distillers and of course, AFI.
Founding members of Love Equals Death included Tsunami Bomb’s Dominic Davi and Tiger Army’s Nick 13. Their approach called “Deathpunk” remained unique and finally returned in 2020, when the band decided to come back to life on a split EP with The Static Age via SBÄM Records and Say-10 Records.
Hitting the studio for a brand new album in this very moment, the band around singer Chon Travis decided to drop a sick compilation on vinyl featuring B-sides and tracks from different labels and even earlier versions of songs on the ‘Nightmerica’ album. This is going to be out on 29th October, roughly towards Halloween 2021, 18 years after founding the band.
On September 29, they dropped a single coming alongside an exciting video put together from older touring footage. “At War (With Myself)” is a very personal song that ultimately shows off the band’s qualities and varieties in their musical style.
