Loathe are a sedulous collective of five musicians, formed in the UK‘s industrial port-city, Liverpool. Their debut record ‘The Cold Sun’ signified a forceful and shrewd testimony. The quintet nailed their colours to the mast with its' resolute mission statement; an ode to the times we’re living in and the murky future that we all find ourselves faced with.
For ‘The Cold Sun’, Loathe travelled to Glow In The Dark Studios in Atlanta, Georgia to record under the watchful eye of producer Matt McClellan (Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada, Being As An Ocean). The result was a highly accomplished chronicle, a passionate piece brimming with technical precision, sinister ambiance and bile. Loathe offer a complex sonic architecture weaving together post-punk, hardcore, heavy electronics, djent and deathcore with a side of prog - melding sonic threads into a surreal entity which reels you deep into the abyss.
2018 and 2019 saw Loathe performing at the prestigious Slam Dunk and Download Festivals in the UK – as well as being nominated as ‘Best New Band’ at both the Metal Hammer Golden Gods and the Heavy Music Awards. The latter part of the 2018 saw the band perform as special guests to Beartooth in the EU. The band has also toured the U.S. with Wage War, following their debut U.S. performance at the 2019 KnotFest. The band has also performed across the UK and EU with such acts as Architects, While She Sleeps, and the Hollywood Undead.
Loathe recently released their sophomore album on SharpTone Records, the darkly-titled 'I Let It In And It Took Everything', which features the hypnotic and spellbinding first single and video, "Two Way Mirror" .
