Every local punk scene needs a meeting place, often a music venue, no matter how unorthodox that setting might be. In the case of Louisville, KY, that locale just happens to be a pizza joint.
Located at 239 S. 5th Street, Spinelli's Pizzeria has become Louisville's most vital hardcore venue, so it's only fitting that Love & Trust's story begins there. The new outfit brings together several vets from the hardcore community in the spirit of the classic sounds they were influenced by as teens in the late '80s. Love & Trust's origin story began at the aforementioned Spinelli's with vocalist Matt Wieder (he's currently the guitarist in Miracle Drug, and has also played in such bands as Mouthpiece and Automatic) and guitarist Jim Barron (Heartstopper) plotting to get a melodic hardcore band together.
Drummer Thommy Browne (Miracle Drug, By the Grace of God, Enkindel) and bassist Ryan Storey (Constraint, LDB Fest) were soon brought into the fold, and work got started.
