Mister Loveless are a 4-piece rock band founded in 2003 by high school friends, Rob Miller and Charlie Koliha in a sleepy suburb of San Francisco called, Walnut Creek. Loveless (as those familiar with the band refer to them) grew from an angular, post-punk act to a sonic territory, all their own when they enlisted long time friend, Sean Gaffney and devoted fan, Nick Clark. The group currently resides in Oakland.
Mister Loveless have influences that range from the melodic tension building dynamics of The Pixies, to the crooning testimony of The Smiths. They have the ability to move the listener into a frenzy and celebration of youth and disorder then, within moments, take them to the brink of solemn tears. It is this double nature, one of joy and regret, that leads spectators to put their drinks down and approach the stage with moth-like tragedy.
Mister Loveless are currently finishing their forthcoming album entitled, Grow Up. The lead single, “Nineties Children” was released in July, 2011. The album will stand as a call to arms and a challenge to a generation that will have to find their place in the world and make it their own.
