Love and a .38 is a four piece hard rock band based out of Los Angeles, CA. They formed in the fall of 2008 and began packing venues shortly thereafter, in the spring of 2009. Since then they have quickly gained notoriety in the Hollywood rock scene, playing to capacity crowds at Sunset staples like The Viper Room, The Roxy Theatre and The Key Club . Love and a .38 has maintained a strong online
presence, as evidenced by Total Rock Radio (UK) acknowledging them as one of the top ten best unsigned bands of 2009. Thus far in 2010 the band was dubbed the Los Angeles representative for Hard Rock Café’s “Ambassadors of Rock.”
In early 2010 they completed their self-titled debut EP, mixed by Grammy Award winning engineer Shawn Sullivan. The five song album gives distinctive nods to their classic rock sensibilities and punk influences, but has a decisively modern edge. Throwback guitar solos intersect with anthemic hooks in a way that is both familiar and refreshing amongst the current me-too rock radio soundscape.
Hundreds of fans arrived at The Roxy Theatre on May 8th to celebrate the album's release. That show earned them glowing reviews in several
industry publications, and gave them lots of momentum as they move forward, promoting their increasingly attention-grabbing EP.
