We are very proud to announce that Gothenburg, Sweden's Love Is All has officially signed with Polyvinyl Record Co. As announced today by Pitchfork, their upcoming full-length Two Thousand and Ten Injuries will be released world-wide on CD/LP March 23rd.
After releasing two critically acclaimed full lengths (Nine Times That Same Song, A Hundred Things Keep Me Up at Night) and several EPs, Love Is All found themselves without a label. For the first time, no one expected them to do anything. When it came time to record a new album, the band decided to play only when they felt like it, with no pressure from an outside source.
The result is Two Thousand and Ten Injuries - an eclectic collection of pop gems, anchored by New Wave and punk rock rhythms that don't ever let up. Accompanied by soundman and co-producer Wyatt Cusick (ex-member of The Aislers Set and Trackstar), Love is All recorded the album using only an old 24-track analog tape machine.
Two Thousand and Ten Injuries will be available on CD and limited edition deluxe black or white 180-gram vinyl (white LPs available exclusively through Polyvinyl). All pre-orders also come with sticker and button.
