We just finished playing a few shows on the Subhumans West Coast tour with the Neighborhood Brats. Thanks again to the Subhumans for having us, the Neighborhood Brats, and everyone who came out early to see us, bought a record, or told us our band name was stupid (we know.)
Today is the day that The Love Songs’ new record, “The Loneliest Whale,” is available for pre-order!
However, for reasons unknown (we blame PG&E) you can now stream the whole bloody thing on Apple Music, Spotify, and Deezer so, like feel free to enjoy the “leaked” version now while we wait for the physical records to show up.
BUT STILL… I’d say head on over HERE and secure yourself a digital download, or a compact disc, or a not-so-compact LP. Personally, I’d opt for the LP because it has a full-size version of this stunning artwork by longtime TLS sympathizer, Glenno.
And as a reminder – our record release show is Oct 23rd at the Ivy Room in Albany, CA with Middle Aged Queers and The Big Forgive!
In the lead up to the release of our new record here is a sneak peak video for the title track, "The Loneliest Whale.” It is compiled from a bunch of absolutely manic studio footage from our time at Nu-Tone Studios. Watch Salem wear different shirts! See Frank scroll through Reddit on his phone! Watch Craig switch guitars, once! Watch Bradley say something to Ben, our engineer! This is a rare exposé on the magic required to sing a song about a whale.
Who: The Love Songs
What: NEW RECORD, and a bunch of shows!
When: Oct 18, and Oct 23-27, respectively.
Where: the internet and at our shows, and at very specific live venues, re-respectively.
Why: solid question. Really, high-five for such a good question.
How: By the grace of Blonde Medicine Records, and the SUBHUMANS, re-re-respectively.
Next week (Oct 11) we’ll start taking pre-orders for a record that, if I may be so cocky, will be the best record we release in 2019. The records and CDs themselves will be available by mail or at one of our shows, listed below.

Our album is inching closer to being available. The mastering is complete, and it will all be sent off for printing soon(ish). We're also excited to be joining the Subhumans for a few shows in October!
The new full-length album we started recording in November 2018 at Nu-Tone Recording with Ben Hirschfield has been mixed and is now ready for whatever comes after that. With any luck we'll have more news on that soon. In the meantime, we have another show coming up in July in San Francisco.
Now that Q2 of 2019 is upon, the C Staff at The Love Songs Inc have set out the Q2 OKR Roadmap for us. We will be playing our first show of 2019 this April!
