A longtime fixture on the Chicago music scene, the Lovehammers are an alternative rock band whose sound is best described as a combination of pop-punk with grunge influences. They have headlined their own International Tours as well as support bands/musicians such as Nickelback, INXS, Slash, Chevelle, KISS, Cake, Theory of a Deadman, The Wallflowers, and, played SOLD OUT shows at the majority of Chicago’s music venues and have appeared LIVE on VH1 playing acoustic versions of their songs.
In preparation for their seventh album Set Fire, band members Marty Casey, Bob Kourelis, Dino Kourelis and Billy Sawilchik took a non-traditional approach to music making and built their own recording studio. Normally rushed and paying for studio time, the Lovehammers were able to write and record at their own pace allowing for more music to be created while songs happened organically. The finished material was given to mixer, Anthony Focx from Nashville (Aerosmith, Steven Tyler, Metallica, Sick Puppies, Motley Crue, etc.) for completion.
