So sorry to anyone that wrote here to see what was up with BL, the blog seemed to have gone cold and I stopped updating it so vigilantly, and I'm just seeing most of those comments now.
We had to take a step back due to some respective school and work situations this year but yes, BL is alive and not dead...yet. We dusted it off to play with our brothers Coliseum in the late summer, and a Hot Snakes cover set for Hallowe'en and this upcoming weekend we're about to play a good old fashioned chaotic late-nighter at Soybomb for Not Dead Yet 2014. With Glue, Big Zit, Depths of Reality and White Wards.
BLOGTO says: "Local stalwarts Burning Love have a legendary pedigree, rising from the ashes of (sadly, aptly named) Cursed as well as Our Father back in 2007. Those roots in hardcore have given way to a sound that's a little more mature (or maybe just more world-weary), donning influences of feel-good classic rock n' roll and even daring to throw in some catchy hooks. Toronto punks in the know are proud to call these guys one of their own. Even better: their after-party set's at Soybomb, undoubtedly one of the best places to catch a heavy show in the city."

Q: And the new 7"?
A: And the new 7".
Down So Long b/w Medicine Man 7"
From Deathwish Inc:
"Burning Love are an unapologetic punk band from Toronto, fronted by vocalist/lyricist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Left For Dead, Ruination, etc). Burning Love's approach is more nuanced than his previous bands. Mixing raw melody and swagger (akin to Laughing Hyenas, Poison Idea, etc) into their hardcore blood. Since 2007, Burning Love have released a number of records on labels like Deranged, High Anxiety, and Southern Lord.
"Down So Long" b/w "Medicine Man" is a two song banger of an EP, recorded by Josh Korody at Candle in Toronto (Fucked Up, etc). Opener "Down So Long" emerges from ghostly feedback with an unrelenting punk romp. Lyrically addressing the social chaos of our world askew, despite the illusion of military and political order. While the infectious "Medicine Man" addresses fashionable drug addiction in the punk world, despite the trail of havoc that it cuts through the most wounded of world populations."
