Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) The Loved Ones were an Australian rock group of the 1960s, formed in the wake of the British Invasion. Although the band’s career lasted only two years, the group is now regarded as one of the most significant Australian bands of the 1960s.

2) The Loved Ones are a band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band was founded in late 2003 by Dave Hause (formerly of The Curse and Paint It Black) on vocals and guitar, Michael Cotterman (formerly of Kid Dynamite) on bass and Mike Sneeringer (formerly of Trial By Fire) on drums. In 2005, they released a self-titled EP on Jade Tree Records. Their debut full-length album, Keep Your Heart, was released in 2006 on popular San Francisco punk label Fat Wreck Chords.

After leaving Paint It Black, singer Dave Hause worked as a roadie for New Jersey’s The Bouncing Souls, which got the Loved Ones’ foot in the door. They eventually toured with the Bouncing Souls and many other reputable bands, including Against Me!, Rise Against, Bad Religion, NOFX, and Less Than Jake.

In December 2006, a posting on the band’s MySpace page announced that Cotterman had left the band. He was replaced by Chris Gonzalez, and they also added second guitarist David Walsh. They were both formerly members of The Explosion, who had announced their breakup near the time Cotterman left.
