Band: The Loved Ones
Where Are They From? Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
When Did They Start? 2003
Who Are They? The Loved Ones are a straight-ahead punk band with a bit of pop-punk thrown in for good measure. The band formed in 2003 after lead singer/guitarist Dave Hause left the band Paint It Black. Since then, they’ve released two EPs and two full albums, and have toured extensively, opening for fellow punk acts like The Bouncing Souls and The Gaslight Anthem.
Why Should You Care? Because The Loved Ones are one of the tightest-sounding punk bands around. They combine a powerful sound with often-insightful lyrics to forge some great tracks. The band also has an appreciation for rock/punk history, as they have released official covers of songs by Joe Strummer, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Bragg.
