"White Lies", the new album by LoveHateHero, is a combination of pop–sensibility and stylistic toughness that results in an entirely memorable album, with songs you will find in your head for days and nights to come. National tastemaker Outburn Magazine proclaims that LoveHateHero‚??s ‚??Melodic mix of hardcore, screamo and metal is perfect for mass consumption‚?Ě in a recent feature on the upcoming album. Recording with producer Cameron Webb (Social Distortion, Silverstein) the band artfully arranges post–hardcore parts and metal–laced riffs with soaring melodies and choruses that are downright anthemic. The addition of young gun Kevin Thrasher on guitar, add not only a level of competence and metal–style execution, but Thrasher‚??s leads take the band to a new technical level that‚??s both exciting and inspiring. Drummer Scotty Gee brings the heat on the drums, taking cues from favorites DC of Tool and JT of the Mars Volta, he embellishes the songs with jazz inspired time signatures and a broad range of styles — from disco hi–hats in verses to galloping double–bass. Paris Bosserman returns on the bass, holding down the foundation, beating and sliding through the songs! Myke Russells high back ups at parts hit notes that rival Bruce Dickenson and Anthony Green adding something new and complimenting Pierrick Berube‚??s lead vocals.

Lyrical focus on the new album centers on revealing tales of personal life, love and lost cause. However Pierrick‚??s lyrics also take the listener ringside inside the van. We get to experience, in his first hand accounts, the highs and lows of living in a band — the resulting overexposure of one‚??s self, the departure of former friends and band members, the hopeless situations and glorious highs, all there for the listener to take in. These are the words of young men grown through two years on the road, times of trial and judgment, and revelation. Releasing their debut full–length ‚??Just Breathe‚?Ě on Ferret Music in 2005, the band just shy of legal age took to the road for an entire year. Taking their lumps including losing members mid–tour and endless hiccups of a new band establishing themselves, LoveHateHero played shows nationally with such artists as Kill Radio, Chiodos, The Panic Division, It Dies Today, 18 Visions, Funeral for A Friend, He is Legend, and Calico System. A little older and wiser, this is the statement of a band now able to see through the ‚??White Lies‚?Ě of na√Įve promise and automatic fulfillment.
