Redlands, California-based hardcore savages THE LOVE BELOW have just released their debut full-length album via brutal indie heavyweight A389 Recordings.
Recorded at Eastland Studios in East Los Angeles and at Gramma’s Boy in Fullerton by Dan Bieranowski, THE LOVE BELOW‘s introductory full-length Every Tongue Shall Caress belts out thirteen high-angst numbers in under twenty-four minutes. Comprised of members of Carry The Casket, The Mistake, and Mother Speed, TLB haphazardly coalesce elements of ’90s icons Fall Silent, Endeavor and Left For Dead into a sound akin to more contemporary acts like Pulling Teeth, Trash Talk and Cursed, resulting in purely unhinged mayhem. View the cover constructed by Eric Marshall and Stephanie Mushrush, a full live set of THE LOVE BELOW and more below.

A389 approached THE LOVE BELOW after the first listen of their 2009 demo and insisted on doing a record. They have worked together ever since. TLB has since released four records on A389 with another EP in the can and slated for later this year. Following a full U.S. tour in the Summer of 2010, including a performance at Philly’s now-infamous This Is Hardcore fest, the outfit have toured the West Cost twice over recent months, including A389’s 7th Anniversary Bash alongside Integrity, Dropdead and Haymaker.
THE LOVE BELOW will take part in the first-ever West Coast A389 label showcase in Pomona, California on May 19th, joining labelmates Integrity, Ringworm, Seven Sisters Of Sleep, Young And In The Way and more. The band will follow the showcase with a full US tour including a performance at this year’s annual Chaos In Tejas throwdown alongside Sham 69, Saint Vitus, Absu, Ringworm, Dropdead, Nasum, Winter, The Mob, and dozens more. Stay tuned for a full tour routing to be announced in the weeks ahead.
