With new LP, the whole country is about to get a taste of the great local hardcore trio Animal Lover
We here locally have been lucky to see Animal Lover on stages all across the Twin Cities over the last few years, and anyone who has caught them live on or record knows the melodic power that the group can bring. The trio pummel through thick slabs of hardcore and post-punk, creating the kind of controlled chaos that would make AmRep proud. The group recently announced their next LP, Stay Alive, which will drop September 9th on Forward Records. You can listen to the first track from the record, the charging (mostly) instrumental “Waterpark of America” above, and if you haven’t gotten on the Animal Lover bandwagon, you should consider jumping aboard before they take the rest of the country by storm with their new LP.
