Love and a .38 is a blue collar rock band for the masses. Four guys from different parts of the country, whose triumphs, failures, and drive to play music brought them all to Los
Angeles where they joined forces. Throughout their career they have been tirelessly D.I.Y. in every aspect of the music business.
Not concerned with hyphens and sub genres, they have taken an “It’s all rock and roll to me” approach to their sound and style since they first formed in 2009, immediately earning a reputation for their high energy live show and aggressive yet accessible sound.
With the release of their self-titled debut EP in 2010 and a string of singles in 2012-13, the band established a solid fanbase, not only in Southern California, but across the globe, receiving accolades from as far away as The U.K. and The Netherlands. After several successful regional tours and an untold number of packed shows in legendary Hollywood rock-clubs, the band took some time to record a proper album.
Love and a .38 released their first full-length album, Nomads, in 2016. Ten powerful tracks that would be equally at home in a small club or an arena stage. Which Revolver Magazine said:
"sounds like a hard rocking Foo Fighters cruising through the desert." and caused the The Midlands Rocks to proclaim "This, dear reader, is rock as God intended it to be... If there’s any
justice in the world, Love and a .38 are going to be huge.”
The band released a new EP, 7th Street Shuffle, in September 2018. With 5 tracks that took their solid foundation of no frills rock and roll and expanded the sound into sonically new directions without losing any of the edge that garnered so much attention from their very beginning. They took to the road in 2019 to support the EP, going as far as Mexico, Canada, and Sweden. With glowing reviews in each stop.
As the world went into upheaval in 2020 and touring became non-existent, Love and a .38 quietly went about their businesses… releasing a string of “quarantine era” singles in 2020 and 2021 that proved to be some of the band's most successful streaming releases to date.
As the music industry starts firing back up, Love and a .38 are poised and ready with new music on hand, and a no holds barred live show that is itching to be released once more to all corners of the globe.
