The Damn Truth’s Love for UK

Ahead of UK tour dates, Montreal-based four-piece rock band The Damn Truth has released a new single in ‘Only Love’.

Produced by legendary record producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, The Cult, Bryan Adams), ‘Only Love’ is the third single taken from the band’s third studio album Now Or Nowhere.

The single and album are both available from here and there’s an official video to accompany ‘Only Love’ that you can catch right here at RAMzine.

“The lyric, only love can keep us going, serves as a reminder that things during the pandemic are challenging, and hardships are everywhere, but if every day has a new morning and we consider every morning a new beginning, then why shouldn’t love guide it?” said the band’s lead singer Lee-La Baum.

“When Bob first heard ‘Only Love’ on the first day at The Warehouse (Bryan Adams’ studio in Vancouver, Canada), he liked it right away but wanted us to try to speed up the tempo.

‘Only Love’ started out as our only ballad on the record, but Bob had a slightly different vision. He basically sent us into the studio, and said: ‘Just give it a try, don’t think, just play it. We’ll know right away if there’s something there’.”

The singer continued, “We played the song at almost double the speed, it felt rushed and awkward, but after laying down the take, we filed into the control room and listened back. It was undeniable. There seemed to be magic to it now.” 

In addition to The Damn Truth supporting King King on various dates in February 2022, the band will also headline their own shows including Leek Foxlowe Arts (Feb 13), Leeds Lending Room (Feb 15), Bristol Exchange (Feb 16), and Southampton 1865 (Feb 25).

Tickets are available from The Gig Cartel. 

“We’re looking forward to touring the UK,” said Baum. “Last time we played the UK was a one-night banger in London that left us wanting for more. We cannot wait to come back and hit the road in the UK.”
