With the difficult press surrounding the band starting to lessen, Petaluma, California-based Love Equals Death has announced the addition of bassist Ryan Sinn.

Sinn replaces the band's former bassist who departed in light of his arrest. They made the announcement to their street team:

We are very happy to announce that Ryan Sinn will be playing bass for Love Equals Death. Ryan is best known [from] The Distillers and most recently Angels and Airwaves. He's not just an amazing bass player, but he has been a good friend for some years now. Be sure to welcome him with open arms.

Sinn departed Angels & Airwaves last month.
