Biography

Love Kills's first release was May 2006's She'll Break Your Heart - a seven-song EP with short, melodic, Phil Spector-ish pop songs which borrowed heavily also from Danish alt-rock duo The Raveonettes, as well as the Jesus and Mary Chain.[1] The EP was produced and distributed independently, but gained them a respectable following within the Toronto indie music scene, with selections from the EP being aired on CBC Radio One's All In A Day program.

The band's second release was December 2006's Teenage Girls - a 4-song EP which was released on December 19, 2006 to coincide with their Nu Music Nite appearance at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern.

Love Kills's last releases were 2007's Carry Me Home[2] which saw the addition of two cellists to their five-piece electric line-up, and the digital single "Angie Oh Angie (I'm Losing My Mind)" which also featured a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Only Living Boy in New York".

The band has been largely inactive since 2009, but reunited for a gig at Rancho Relaxo in January, 2013. No further dates are planned. Pat Rijd released a solo album in 2013 under the name "The Dayflowers" entitled Streetcorner Sympathy.[3]
