"Louder Than Love is one of the most acclaimed bands on the local indie scene, drawing praise all around, even being declared the city’s best in a recent poll" —24 Hours Vancouver
Louder Than Love incorporates everything from hard rock riffs and acoustic folk arrangements, to pop vocal harmonies and dirty blues guitar solos. Since the release of their debut album Dark Days,less than a year-and-a-half ago, the Vancouver-based band has received rave reviews for the album and their live show (local magazine Guttersnipe praises their “energetic performances and technical musicianship”), airplay on commercial radio stations, (CBC, 106.9 The Wolf, 104.7 Power, 103.5 The Bridge, 99.3 The Fox), charted top 4 on the !earshot radio reports, and completed two successful Western Canadian/U.S. tours.
Last year, Louder Than Love was named one of the Top 20 bands in the prestigious 99.3 The Fox Seeds competition, played at the Vancouver Convention Centre as one of the winners of the Snow Show Fresh Trax competition, and signed an artist sponsorship deal with Graph Tech Guitar Labs (sponsors of Nickelback and Kenny Wayne Shepherd).
Ready to capitalize on their early success, the band is wasting no time—in November, they released their follow-up EP “Coming Around”, recorded with famed producer Jeff Dawson (Art of Dying, State of Shock, Hey Ocean!, Nas), and Paul Forgues (NIN, AC/DC, Barenaked Ladies) to critical and audience acclaim. This summer, LTL will embark on a cross-country tour to promote their highly anticipated third release.
“The praise for LTL is virtually everywhere these days and the accolades are clear testament to their genre-bending performances following the 2009 release of their debut CD, Dark Days. I now count myself as a very big fan” — Joe Leary, TV Week

"Usually it’s not an easy task for a relatively new band to grip me within the first couple of songs, especially so suddenly. Yet Louder Than Love's EP release “Coming Around” is a definite exception to that rule...This is a band that deserves their ever growing popularity. Even I can call myself a fan since they have me hooked waiting for the full release of the album to drop in the summer." — Ryan Mund, Rockstar Weekly
