BURNING LOVE Release Track From Southern Lord Debut

Following their official singing at the turn of the new year, the final details on the first Southern Lord release from Ontario’s BURNING LOVE are this week available.

The band’s anticipated second LP, Rotten Thing To Say — recorded by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studio and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side — boasts BURNING LOVE’s monolithic brew of rock-fueled punk/hardcore with more volatile riffage and poetically-enraged lyrical content than ever before over the twelve anthems, without a doubt boasts the band’s most powerful material to date.  Rotten Thing To Say has been confirmed for an official North American street date of June 19th via CD, LP and digital download.

Today Alternative Press Magazine is hosting the world’s virgin listen to Rotten Thing To Say by streaming the album’s seventh track, “Hateful Comforts.”  Listen here.

Formed by several members of previous act Our Father and infamous vocalist of Chris Colohan (Cursed, Left For Dead, the Swarm), BURNING LOVE‘s output is detached from comparisons to the members’ previous acts. A filthy rock ‘n roll-fed concoction of deafening punk/hardcore propelled by beastly riffs and Colohan’s raging, caustic vocals, counterbalanced by occasional melodious grooves run the show here.

BURNING LOVE are on the road now, headlining multiple dates throughout the Northeast, and continue to book more dates as the album draws near. Following another slew of headlining dates in early June, the band have been confirmed as one of the four main acts for this Summer’s massive Southern Lord package tour, where BURNING LOVE will tackle the US for three weeks alongside labelmatesMARTYRDÖD, ENABLER and tour headliners BLACK BREATH, with special guestsPOISON IDEA, NOOTHGRUSH, PELICAN, POWER TRIP, WILD//TRIBE, DEAD IN THE DIRT, THE SECRET and more joining the mayhem on select dates.
