The Loved Ones announce 'Keep Your Heart' 10th anniversary shows!
As you may know, The Loved Ones are getting together to play a series of shows this February in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their debut album, Keep Your Heart. A few shows have already been announced including: LA, SF, NYC, Philly and Boston. Today, we can reveal that the celebration continues to Chicago, Minneapolis and D.C! Tickets for some of the shows are available now (and moving fast) so don’t delay; these shows will sell out! Head back to our site on Wednesday because the rest of the dates go on sale then. Read a personal account for the impetus behind Keep Your Heart explained by Dave Hause below:
The Loved Ones was the first band I had ever been the singer of, and Keep Your Heart was the first full record I ever wrote. It was born from a lot of pain, mostly losing my mom after she battled cancer for 6 months, so it was incredibly close to the bone. Writing and recording those songs with Michael and Mike was a cathartic, explosive, and eye opening experience that informed everything I’ve done since, and that record put the band on the map. It’s important to mark anniversaries and celebrate them, and I’m looking forward to revisiting these songs with all of The Loved Ones, from both records’ line ups. That record was written as a love letter to my siblings as we grieved, and it’ll be great to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of it with fans in the cities the band loved most when we were touring extensively. Going back to it and knowing you can heal from life’s hardest struggles is something to celebrate, and I can’t think of a better way to do so than in rock and roll clubs with friends and family, turned up loud.
