The Loved Ones
Label: Fat Wreck Chords
Punk from Philadelphia Pennsylvania
Born on the streets of Philadelphia in late 2003 as the brainchild of singer/guitarist Dave Hause, bassist Michael "Spider" Cotterman and drummer Mike Sneeringer. The threesome were longtime friends deeply steeped in their hometown lineage, each having initially offered up their talents as the players in Kid Dynamite, The Curse, and for a time, Paint It Black. And while the still relatively new band is definitely a departure from the individuals' past endeavors, the punk sensibilities and organic approach to playing still remain paramount.
