Hawai’i’s Mike Love has a new album dropping September 1st, 2015 titled Love Will Find A Way. As a result, Mike Love will be marching out on a National tour to promote the forthcoming release beginning September 9th.
Love Will Find A Way was recorded at Soul Sound Studio and Studio Ala Moana in Kane’ohe, O’ahu, Hawai’i and will be released on Love Not War Records. As the press release reads, the album title is also its theme, and it refers to the idea that unconditional love enables living beings to survive and adapt within today’s dire straits, particularly the challenge to ecosystems that climate change poses and the ascendency of corporations over citizens in many countries.
“People are hungry for something, and a lot of times they don’t even know what it is,” shares Mike. “Positive music that has messages of spiritual and social change can be a beacon for them in the darkness. That’s really the inspiration for all I do—healing. We need it now more than ever, myself as much as the next person. The music heals me as much as it does those I play for.”
In addition to contributing vocals, guitar, ukulele, and piano, Mike Love is joined by a cast of musicians on this album that includes Sam Ites on drums, Jon Hawes on bass, Keith Tsukamaki and Jorell Nacapuy on keyboards, Reggie Padilla on saxophone, Deshannon Higa on trumpet, and Kelli Heath-Cruz as engineer.
Like all of his work, this will be another spiritual release for Mike as he looks to carry that spiritual message through his music on an upcoming fall tour of the same title.
Mike Love will play the first of his 19 show fall tour on September 8th in Austin, TX at The North Door. The tour will include 10 states inside the mid-west and west-coast with everything coming to an end on September 27th in Avila Beach, CA.
