Love and Theft drop new single

Friday, June 29, 2018 – Love and Theft released its new single and video, "You Didn't Want Me," June 29.

"We have loved this song since the day we wrote it," the duo said in a statement. "It feels good every time we play it. We can't wait for our fans, and fans of music everywhere, to hear it."

"This song has been and will continue to be one of my favorites to play every night," said Eric Gunderson. "I can relate and I'd venture to guess that most people can too."

The group, which also includes Stephen Barker Liles, has had hits with "Angel Eyes," which went number one, and "Whiskey On My Breath." Gunderson and Liles have released three albums. The band is on Curb Records.

CD reviews for Love and Theft

Whiskey on My Breath
Going the indie route generally is viewed as entrepreneurial. For Love and Theft's Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson, it was a necessity. The duo is proof that the chart summit is not all it's cracked up to be. After hitting number 1 with 2012's "Angel Eyes," they were dropped by RCA Nashville last year when their follow up singles flopped. With their final album for the label shelved and unable to legally recut the tracks they had recorded, "Whiskey On My »»»
Love And Theft CD review - Love And Theft
A lot has happened to Love and Theft since they debuted in 2009. They're down to a trio - Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles - since Brian Bandas left two years ago. They've switched labels as well, and instead of being forgotten after one hit single (Runaway), they're emerging again thanks to the single and lead-off track Angel Eyes. There's more than that going on though. Gunderson and Liles both sing well, trading leads and harmonizing often with each other (If You »»»
World Wide Open CD review - World Wide Open
What if you held auditions for lead singer within your band and everyone got the job? It happens. All three members of Love and Theft - Brian Bandas, Eric Gunderson, and Stephen Barker Liles - share the vocal duties, acting as each other's backups and plugging in harmonies (think early Eagles) wherever possible. In the wake of a tour opening for Taylor Swift, the pin-up gents from everywhere (Austin by way of Charlotte and Clearwater, Fla.) now venture forth with their debut to the eager »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
