In an interview with our very own Cindy Blankenship, host of the Backstage With Mothership show here on Solid Rock Radio, Love and Death guitarist JR Bareis provided details about the long-awaited successor to their 2013 release “Between Here and Lost.” Excerpts from the interview are below:
JR shared that he was preparing to fly to Los Angeles to finish recording his guitar and vocal parts at the time of the interview:
This announcement comes at a time when the members of Love and Death are spread out between several differing music projects. Love and Death paused touring after Brian rejoined his former band “Korn.” JR then joined the band Islander. Drummer Dan Johnson became RED’s touring drummer (and recently an official member). Their producer, Jasen Rauch, currently tours with Breaking Benjamin.
JR shared the tentative time-frame for the new Love and Death album:
He also shared that we can expect a single in August:
JR: “Yeah, I know we will be releasing at least a single or two before the record would come out. I know the thought was to shoot for sometime in August to send a single to radio. That’s the plan, so maybe like September-ish?”
Love and Death has released one single, Lo Lamento, since the release of their previous album in 2013. Rumors of a sophomore album have been circulating as early as 2017, when the band posted a Facebook video of JR recording with producer Jasen Rauch in a Nashville studio.
