- Keep Your Heart (Site) There is a new trio of rock royalty emerging from streets of Philadelphia , PA. The Loved Ones are already a mainstay in the punk rock community, and with the release of their latest album Keep In Your Heart, that role will definitely be solidified. This great album is powered by the strong vocals/guitar of lead singer Dave Hause, the hard hitting drums of Mike Sneeringer , and the mellow bass of Michael “Spider” Cotterman.  These three are a melting pot of bands of the past and present, including the likes of  Green Day, Trapt, and Fall Out Boy. My favorite track, “Sickening,” is one of the more mellow songs on the album and reminds me so much of “Wake Me Up When September Ends” by Green Day. It really focuses on the lyrics, and simple instrumentals, which adds to its laid back delivery. The Loved Ones have great range, and this album shows it. They don’t stick to one specific formula. They have something on here for every mood, or occasion. If you are a fan of diversity, and the element of surprise, this would be a worthwhile investment to add to your CD collection. - Krystal Clark
