For a decade now, Love Story's End has performed honest, passionate, aggressive music all along the Gulf Coast and beyond. Since its inception, they've shared the stage with national touring and recording artists including P.O.D., August Burns Red, Staind, Becoming the Archetype and more. Love Story's End posters even made their way to the seasons 1 & 2 sets of MTV's Teen Wolf, representing the modern under-the-radar music of today's youth.
Most recently, the band put their own spin on 90s' classic "Nothing Compares 2 U." The 1985 Prince b-side, later immortalized in 1990 by Sinéad O'Connor's album and MTV video, topped charts worldwide and became a best-selling single. The hard hitting remake is currently the latest release from Love Story's End.
The band's sophomore album also made waves across the coast. A darker continuation of the first effort, "Death Doesn't Deserve Me" examines a poem line-by-line until ending on its title track. Blending influences ranging from indie to metalcore, this concept-record can change directions and shift moods in an instant while always maintaining its presence of underlying aggression just beneath the surface. The extensive album art is currently being adapted into it's own comic book by vocalist Clint Hagler.
Love Story's End first became a presence on the Gulf Coast in the summer of 2003. Formed by two Biloxi-area teens with various influences, the band made two studio EPs and toured the mid-west in its first year. Demos and mp3s spread like wildfire with tales of erratic and unpredictable live performances.
2006 marked their debut album "Biloxi War Tribe," inspired by and produced in their home-base of Biloxi, MS by producer Clyde Holly (3 Doors Down). The release date marked the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which completely devastated Biloxi and well beyond. The title-track is one of the band's signature songs, with chants of "you got the system - i got the pistol" and "we want it all."
The follow-up to the first album was delayed an entire year as Hagler regrouped with drummer Phil Krohn. "Death Doesn't Deserve Me" was finally released on Valentine's Day 2011. Tracked at Riverside Studios in Moselle, MS and mixed at Cenico Studios in Biloxi, the album was produced by the in-demand Mark Black (Touching the Absolute, Afroman) and co-produced Clint Hagler. The assembled track listing forms an eight line poem, which is dissected in pieces through each song. The slasher movie genre is an inspiration with the artwork, while much of the lyrics are about real events.
Music is published through Hagler's own War Tribe Records, making the group fully independent in an age where major labels have become obsolete for artists outside the mainstream stratosphere. The band is currently supporting their latest release and planning ahead for the year to come. Music is available at iTunes, Amazon, CDbaby, Interpunk, and www.LoveStorysEnd.com.
