"These five songs prove that this band should be taken very seriously. Excellent sound, energy, nerve and rock at its finest. A band that rocks hard and that can sell many albums with choruses and melodies as catchy as these. If things don’t go wrong, Love Division can become one of the biggest alternative rock bands of the country."

"Cinco canciones que sirven para demostrar que este grupo va muy en serio. Excelente sonido en directo, energía, descaro y rock en estado puro. Un grupo que suena duro y que puede vender muchos discos con estribillos y melodías tan pegadizas. Si las cosas no se tuercen, Love Division puede ser uno de los grandes grupos de rock alternativo de este país."

“Tags don’t work here, this is Rock music, but Rock produced in 2009: a few drops of punk, acoustic guitars with beautiful crossover songs and indisputable melodies chained like a rollercoaster of emotions that closes with two hits to be remembered: “The Velvet Revolution” and the perfect end of “Life Will Never be The Same”. Beware, an amazing album”
- Viva Las Vegas, Radio Enlace

“No valen aquí las etiquetas, esto es Rock, pero Rock del 2009: unas gotas de energía punk, guitarras acústicas con bellos medios tiempos e incontestables melodías encadenadas como una montaña rusa de grandes sensaciones que acaba con dos hits para el recuerdo: “The Velvet Revolution”, y el perfecto colofón que es “Life Will Never Be The Same”. Ojo, discazo.”
- Viva Las Vegas, Radio Enlace - Viva Las Vegas, Radio Enlace


"Expectations are fully met. Rock and roll flows through their veins with the intensity of an electroshock. The intensity that exhales from songs like “Troubled Ways” or “I Bleed When You Bleed” tells us about a band that can stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Sex Museum, Backyard Babies or Diamong Dogs."
Mondo Sonoro

"(…) cumplen con las expectativas al 100%. El Rock fluye por sus venas con la intensidad de un cortocircuito. El arrebato que despiden canciones como Troubled Ways o I Bleed When You Bleed nos habla de una banda que puede tutearle sin vergüenza alguna tanto a Sex Museum como a Backyard Babies o Diamond Dogs."

"The Velvet Revolution is one of my favourite rock albums of the past few years. An overwhelming record."
Time For Action!

"The Velvet Revolution está entre mis discos favoritos de Rock de los últimos años. Realmente abrumador."
- Time For Action!


"Killer riffs, heavy sound, hyper catchy choruses and energy galore. Live raw sound, dense and dirty, that swings from rage to darkness and that leaves you wanting more (...) This live album will open your appetitte for what the band can offer in the near future. We'll follow them closely. 4/5
Solo-Rock - Solo Rock


"To speak of Love Division is to speak about rock music in its purest state: powerful riffs, catchy choruses, intensity, tons of attitude and a hard, addictive sound that is put into action with energetic, in your face, brilliant live shows. The 5 songs that comprise ‘Live In NYC’ leave you desperately wanting more. They are a true rock and roll band. I can assure you will hear much more of them in the future.” - Insonoro - www.insonoro.com


"Can a band release one of the best albums of the year with their debut studio album? With only three years of existence, is it possible for these newcomers to be compared with the likes of Sex Museum or, even further, The Stooges? It looks like it is possible, and Love Division is living proof.“
- Zona Zero - www.zona-zero.net


“This is ROCK with capital letters: rage, electricity and an arsenal of riffs and choruses many would kill for. A fresh and exciting band that has already earned its place among the country's finest. Don't tell us we didn't warn you.”

Rock & Roll Army

“Esto es ROCK con mayúsculas (…) Rabia, electricidad y un arsenal de riffs y estribillos por el que muchos matarían. Una banda fresca y excitante que se ha ganado desde ya jugar en la liga de los mejores en este país. No digan que no se lo advertimos desde aquí.”

Bio

After the warm reception of their first two studio albums, both of which gathered unanimous critical acclaim, Love Division strike again with “Anthems for the Lost Generation”, their third studio effort and the confirmation of all the expectations that could be predicted in its predecessors.

The Band:
Love Division is a rock and roll explosion in which arena
choruses, anthemic melodies and vibrant guitars meet
nihilism and the underground spirit in a collision that
oozes stellar songwriting crafted with style, class and elegance.

Since its birth in New York back in 2005, the band has not stopped moving and growing: they release their first record live at the legendary CBGB, tour Europe and the US playing over 150 shows (including the Roxy in Los Angeles), lay down some tracks at the historic Sun Studio in Memphis, receive a
dozen awards in Spain alone... And now, after almost a year in the studio, they finally deliver the fruits of their latest recording crop with this brand new “Anthems for the Lost Generation”.

The Album:
Recorded and mixed at Reno studios in Madrid, produced by Fernando Pardo (Los Coronas, Sex Museum) and mastered at Salademáquinas, “Anthems for the Lost Generation” is an exercise of resistance and reaffirmation of principles in the shape of songs. From the hammering invitation to surrender of “Chain Of Command” to the held back disappointment of “End in the End” or the ray of light of “We Ain’t Going Down”, “Anthems for the Lost Generation” displays extraordinary songwriting skills that are matched with impeccable execution and extraordinarily tight sound.

The album rocks with raw power, which is matched with an intoxicating lyrical effort. From the rock perfectionism of “Big Night” (The Wire anybody?) to the gripping cry of “Résistance!” or “Twilight”, through the forced exile of “Long Way Home” or the subterranean epic of “The Art of Lost Love” or “Nowhere Fast”, the album collects the best of the American and British rock and roll tradition of the last 40 years (The Who, The Clash, Pearl Jam, Manic Street Preachers, The Stones, Bowie, The Stooges, NIN) and puts it to the service of a message of commitment in which the spirit of minority, the underground world and freedom of thought are vindicated. It is an active, critical and passionate reflection on the fight for one’s values, the bitter taste of defeat and the fragility of the individual in front of a hostile and monopolizing universe. All of it channeled through an energetic rhythm section, a strong, heartfelt voice and, above all, by indisputable melodies. It is a trip to the universe of idealism in which the likes of Jean Moulin, Peter Fechter, Anna Politkovskaya or Leon Trotsky meet and in which the temptation to surrender (“it’s not too late to sell your soul”) is faced by hope (“who stops this craving for the new?”) and a sense of convinced optimism (“you got our bodies, not our souls”).

Both innocent and ambitious, gentle and demanding, subtle and extreme, “Anthems For The Lost Generation” evokes and beats hard, with the intention of transcending, of moving people, and of opening musical horizons in today’s independent music scene. And with a key goal: to convert the “lost generation” to their cause with these twelve anthems. Enjoy.
