The band, have come a long way since 2004’s smash album ‘Pawn Shoppe Heart’. Now in their ninth year together, singer-guitarist Jason Stollsteimer and drummer Don Blum, The Von Bondies’ other founding member, have taken their music to new places while holding on to the core values they’ve always embodied. ‘Love, Hate and Then There’s You’ picks up from the tighter, more nuanced sound of The Von Bondies’ huge 2004 hit single ‘C’mon C’mon,’. This is The Von Bondies with a renewed sense of purpose. In a sense, says Stollsteimer, ‘it’s a new band. You don’t want to avoid your history but it is a new direction. It wasn’t on purpose. It’s just where we were going.’ The roots of The Von Bondies can be traced back to the late ’90s—at one point Jason had a band called the Baby Killers—but things really began in earnest when Blum teamed up with Stollsteimer in 1999. The Von Bondies were born in 2000, and the first album, ‘Lack of Communication’, came the following year. ‘Raw and Rare’, a collection of live BBC recordings, followed in 2003, then ‘Pawn Shoppe Heart’.
Shortly before the album’s release, The Von Bondies will return to the UK for a series of dates.
They are as follows:
Thu 23rd – Kings College – London
Fri 24th – CAmden Crawl – London
Sat 25th – O2 Academy – Birmingham
Sun 26th – King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut – Glasgow
