Consisting of Joe McFaddin (vocals/guitar), Jake Bonham (guitar), Jake Sims (bass), and Jake Rinehart (drums), 2011 is expected to be an even bigger year for This Love, as they plan the release of their sophomore album, At War. At War is a full concept album on the conflict between love and hate; man vs. himself. Despite the forward title, this is not about a physical “war’, but an everyday battle in regards of doing the things you, yourself, want to do vs. society’s status quo. It is about the choice that one must make in following their passion; being and showing love to this world before falling into the ever-trending hateful ways. All in all, this is meant to be an inspiring story that will bring victory to the listeners’ ears with truth and light in every song.
Since releasing their debut EP, The Beginning, in the summer of 2010, This Love quickly gathered critical acclaim from press and fans alike. The band received praise from AbsolutePunk and was named in the “Absolute 100 bands you need to know”, was regularly featured on Purevolume and theirexclusive playlist, graced the cover of Substream Magazine, as well as being featured on Fearless Radio, DJ Rossstar, The Gunz Show, and much more.
The band showed no signs of slowing down in 2010, and the music industry quickly took notice. Journey’s shoes decided to pick up the bands video “Like a Million Lights” and feature the video in all Journeys stores nationwide. Other retailers quickly caught the buzz of This Love and Hot Topic placed their EP, The Beginning, in all locations. In addition, the band still found time to play shows with the likes of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Let’s Get It, Cute is What We Aim For, The Bigger Lights, Friday Night Boys, House of Heroes, and Journey’s Backyard BBQ.
This Love is based simply around living with passion. “Reviving rock ‘n’ roll so that listeners can relate to the music and lyrics, and in doing so find inspiration to love and live the way they truly want. So with that, what is your love? Get out there and be a light. The world needs you.” States McFaddin
