Lovedrug = Viagra + Zoloft?


Guns don't kill people; Lovedrug kills people. After a rollercoaster major label ride on Columbia (without ever releasing a CD), the Ohio quartet is back on cozy Militia Group for their follow-up to 2005's Pretend You're Alive. The new record Everything Starts Where It Ends is due out March 6th and coincides with a huge national tour alongside Plain White T's. Lovedrug has had a profound effect on my career as a music listener, bringing a near-perfect blend of epic rock with just enough darkness and melancholy to cut me deep, but not all the way through. Combining the arena rock grandeur of Queen with the melodic leanings of Sunny Day Real Estate and the distorted pop of Muse, Lovedrug inoculates early and has a lingering effect of euphoria. This record is easily in my top 5 most anticipated releases of 2007. You can pre-order at the Militia Group for $7.50 which is totally absurd. Make it happen if you like this.

So what is this news I hear that their new cd matches up perfectly to Edward Scissorhands. Someone mentioned that you put the CD/iPod on shuffle and repeat and turn on the movie. That's pretty flippin cool. I think the album is called everything starts where it ends
