PRESS STATEMENTS

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“Wounded and wounding laments from the gutters and streets of Denver. The guitars are raw and low-slung, the vocals are a perfect mix of whiskey-sour kisses and brattish pout and sneer. Yes it’s more punk rock’n’roll, but this is the kind with dirt under its nails, lurching out of the working class dives frequented by the likes of Social Distortion rather than the (admittedly no less thrilling) dandies clubs preferred by The Strokes and their ilk. Yet while there’s attitude and energy aplenty on “Naysayers And Yesmen”, Reno Divorce sound like they’re classicists at heart, and most of these songs would be equally as effective stripped down to a lone voice and acoustic guitar. Add a story-telling lyrical style that is socially aware, seedy and poetic all at the same time, and you have an oddly-moving brand of punk rock that wears its cynical, discontented heart brazenly on its sleeve like a wrecked romantic.“ 
Paul Travers, Kerrang! 
“Besides, the musicianship and writing speak for themselves. As a songwriter Loveday possesses a sensitivity to the human condition and an empathy for the underdog that never waxes into the misplaced bravado found in some other bands’ lyric’s“ 
Tom Murphy, Westword Magazine 
“It is both beautiful and tragic that the best OC punk album in years comes from half the country away. Lover’s Leapfrom Denver’s Reno Divorce delivers the sound we have all been waiting around for, but didn’t get. This is the record Mike Ness wished he would have written. From the opening bars of “Rep to Protect”, you know exactly what you’re in for. “I’d love to sit and chat about all the times I let you down, but now I’m all done with that. ” It’s a bold and plaintive statement, accompanied by a “come at me bro” old school sound that is both reassuring in its familiarity, yet cleaned up with just enough polish to make it shine. It’s like the hot rod in your old man’s garage that just needed a tune up to roar down the road.“ 
Damon Workman, For the Love of Punk 
“The new Reno Divorce album… Where the bear shit in the buckwheat. I like it. I like it a lot. It restored my faith in mankind. I don’t feel like killing everyone I meet. A great album that sees thru the bullshit.“ 
Joe Queer- The Queers

This comprehensive collection of music shows the band is willing to take risk without overreaching and are as comfortable behind the board as they are in front of it.
