Power. Grace. Intensity. All of these words can easily describe the sound that is Love In Chains. Influenced by bands like KISS, Europe, Dokken, and Stryper, their music is an unapologetic throwback to a time when heavy guitar riffs, bombastic drums, soaring vocals, and heavenly harmonies dominated the airwaves. This IS the music of your youth, modernized!
Initially a project of guitarist Mike Floros (SteelCity) and vocalist Rob Kane (Apocalyptic Lovers), the two men quickly realized they were onto something very special. They enlisted the help of Mike’s trusted production team of Ty Sims and Erik Johnson to help round out the sound that would become Love In Chains. Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist extraordinaire, Erik added visceral power on drums and absolute punch on bass. With Rob and Erik rounding out the vocals, the sound was not just complete but absolutely rock solid.
With the release of the album, the guys knew the opportunity for live play would come knocking, and as such, Mike and Rob started their search for the premiere players that would round out their lineup. They didn’t have to look too far for their bassist. Jason Cornwell, Mike’s right hand in SteelCity, was an easy choice to round out the bottom end. His live play is well known, as he’s toured the world over in past stints with Eric Martin. On drums, the band enlisted the skills of one of melodic rock’s emerging stars, Brian Karl. His work with bands like Station and West Bound has left profound, lasting impressions on all who’ve witnessed him live.
The band realizes that the number one way to engage with its fans is live performance. Looking to the immediate future, the band plans to play select shows to support its debut album, Everyday Heroes. One step at a time, one show at a time, they intend to win over those who’ve supported their “maiden voyage.” How will they do it? With power, grace, and intensity.
