The Love Hate Thing Band

Love Hate Thing Music
Since the alternative rock movement Adult Oriented Rock music has been hard to come by. Enter Love Hate Thing, a rock group centered on blistering guitar solos, arena rock performances, thunderous foundations, & melodic vocals. Most rock music today is branded and given the Saturday morning cartoon lunchbox treatment. Love Hate Thing gives a classic vibe with a modern edge and fresh sound.

400+ radio stations across North America play Love Hate Thing. Over 6.000 copies of their debut album, mastered by the legendary Howie Weinberg, sold within the first year of its release. Love Hate Thing looks to revolutionize rock n’ roll with its live performances, timeless sound, and new form of music distribution (to be introduced later this year). Love Hate Thing is set apart from other acts of today by bringing back the strong voice of rock present in every generation since the 1950′s.

About Love Hate Thing

LOVEHATETHING hailing from Greencastle, Pennsylvania, was formed in January 2009, by Sean Clever, Ryan Eshelman, and Matt Cole. When these three musicians finally came together a driving riff rock sound was instantly created.

Sean and Matt both (formally of Josa Step) have been playing music together for over 15 years. They have recorded several past albums, been signed to an indie label and played many shows at venues such as the Xocatoma Music festival, The Chameleon Club, The Vault, Rams Head Live, and too many more to mention.

Sean’s guitar sound will be one that you will not easily forget, coupled with his lyrical genius. Add Matt’s explosive drumming, and a sound is created that will keep you rocking from beginning to end. Now add Ryan (formally of Marsiglia) to the mix with his driving bass lines, and a voice that has been referred to as, “Eshleman’s voice blends with the band’s musicianship similar to modern rockers Incubus and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

For a while they travelled throughout the Tristate taking advantage of every opportunity available to get in front of eager listeners. Shortly there after, along with their friend Jarred Cannon (of Hierosonic) at the helm as the engineer, the band recorded at Soundmine Studio in East Stroudsburg, PA. The band finished a full length 10 song Rock ‘N’ Roll Monster titled, “The Disco Killer,” in just 8 days. The album was released, and digitally distributed world wide on,,, and It is also in regular rotation on WRZO 102.9 The Razor and has since been put into rotation on several online radio stations. In July of 2010 the band was selected as one of eight finalists in the nationwide Reprise Rivalry Competition sponsored by sonic LOVEHATETHING also maintained a 5 star rating on garage Everyone who hears, “The Disco Killer”, seems to agree that there is a very bright future ahead for these original, aspiring and inspiring musicians.

LOVEHATETHING LIVE! As an attendant of a live show, one could expect to sit comfortably in their seat sipping beverages, and socializing with other onlookers. However, as an attendant at a LOVEHATETHING show, there will be no sitting, sipping, or socializing!!! There is only a flurry of Rock ‘N’ Roll fury characterized by raging guitars, methodic rhythmic , and melodic vocals with a harmonic infusion.

LOVEHATETHING has an impressive array of endeavors for the latter part of 2010. Inspired by the deployment of their manager, Eric Shields, to serve in Iraq, the band is orchestrating a benefit for soldiers serving their country abroad. Groundwork for the benefit is coming together and it is expected to be in place by October 2010. Filming of 2 music videos are also in the works and will be released before the New Year. The band is currently writing the next album and is expanding its Live Showcases to neighboring regions yet this year!
