On the highly anticipated sequel to 2014’s ‘HEAL’ – an album we loved – Tim Showalter yearns for rock ‘n’ roll transcendence, whilst confronting the guilt that ensues from the single minded pursuit of that dream.

Hard Love’ harnesses Showalter’s unrelenting energy and channels it into nine of the most incendiary, ambitious songs in Strand Of Oaks’ discography. “moments of personal darkness are threaded throughout Hard Love, but the clarity and strength that Showalter finds when he shrugs off the gloom gives the songs a restless.…boisterously stand as some of Strand of Oaks finest work to date.” 9/10 – the line of best fit
