Lovedrug - Dinosaur
Tired of fighting through some gnarly music industry red tape, Ohio band Lovedrug decided to take matters into their own hands and moved from Akron and Columbus to Nashville, TN approximately one year ago.
In March of 2010 Lovedrug began to independently release chapters of (+/-), a three part EP. That November, they announced a fan driven initiative in partnership with PledgeMusic to raise funds needed to record and release their fourth full length album. Over a period of a few weeks they were able to meet and exceed their goal.
Fast forward to March 6 of this year; these four handsome brutes celebrated the release of Wild Blood, their fourth album, and first full length in 4 years. The album stays true to their alt-grunge roots everyone fell in love with back in 2002. Wild Blood rings with a bright tone of cautious optimism versus lead singer Michael Shepard’s early days writing brooding lyrics laced with manic angst. Seems like these guys have really embraced the contagious creative energy that flows through Nashville and it couldn’t sound better.
Lovedrug makes their highly anticipated return to the Columbus stage after almost three years, this Saturday, April 7 at Rumba Cafe.
