To the uninitiated, Burning Love is a group from Toronto, Canada 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. After the sudden demise of the now legendary Cursed, enigmatic frontman Chris Colohan picked right back up where 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.
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.
Following their previous full-length, in addition to a multitude of EPs and split releases and more since their 2008 inception, the band’s anticipated second LP, ”Rotten Thing To Say” was recorded by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studio and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side without a doubt boasts the band’s most powerful material to date. Licensed from Southern Lord Recordings “Rotten Thing To Say” will be released in Australia on June 22.
This August the band will make their maiden trip to Australian shores. Tickets available at the door for all shows.
