LOVEDRUG'S THE SUCKER PUNCH SHOW IN STORES TODAY ON THE MILITIA GROUP

LOVEDRUG'S THE SUCKER PUNCH SHOW IN STORES TODAY ON THE MILITIA GROUP
BAND ON TOUR WITH COPELAND, LYDIA, AND LIGHTS

Lovedrug are back, and they brought their guitars and a few cross words with them.

OCTOBER 28, 2008-Lovedrug, the Cleveland, Ohio quartet once compared to the likes of Coldplay for their foray into piano-driven tunes has just made a 180-degree turn with its latest release, The Sucker Punch Show.

Now more akin to bands such as Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age, Lovedrug, arena-leaning indie rockers that they are, delivers in spades on the big-budget hints inherent in much of the band's previous work. Their neo-melodic-grunge has won over critics at Spin.com ("grungy guitar brawn of bygone flannel rockers, but adds complexity with epic arrangements and moments of unsettling Thom Yorke falsetto"), Alternative Press ("There's no shortage of massive and muscular moments here"), Paste ("Dark and lovely, as addictive as the band's name suggests"), Flaunt ("Gloomily triumphant"), Blender.com ("Lovedrug combine smart lyrics with hearty rock & roll to create a record full of indiepop gems."), Entertainment Weekly ("...somewhere between 70's-style guitar-rock grandeur and pre-weird Radiohead lives this inebriated, quasi-hallucinatory tale."), and RollingStone.com (Editor's Pick).

Earlier this month the fierce-some foursome (singer/guitarist/keyboardist Michael Shepard, guitarist Jeremy Michael Gifford, bassist Thomas Bragg and drummer James Childress) hit the road with Copeland. The tour runs through November 23 with the second gig of a two-night stand at The Social in Orlando, FL.

With The Sucker Punch Show in stores today, Lovedrug is now wholly focused on the live shows to come. According to drummer James Childress, "We conceptualized, wrote and recorded this album from start to finish with the working idea that we would be able to recreate the songs live."

Guitarist Jeremy Gifford agrees, adding: "I can't wait to play these songs live - it's going to be a true rock experience - just four guys bringing the noise."
