If you listen to Loathe’s startling good new single “Two-Way Mirror”, you’ll probably be transfixed by its alt-rock beauty almost right away. The Zak Pinchin-directed music video has pushed upwards of 40,000 views on Youtube in just 2 days, a high number for a band that’s not on everyone’s radar…yet. Of course, they will be rather soon once their sophomore album drops next month, and they’re certainly on ours, too.
Many songs on the upcoming record are also influenced by alt-metal legends Deftones, and while it’s easy to draw comparisons to the band, Loathe are certainly their own entity. However, it’s always to get noticed by your heroes, and if Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno thinks you’re worthy of attention, your music has to be worth a listen.

Needless to say, everyone in the Loathe and Sharptone Records camps has to be flipping out right now considering Moreno posted about “Two-Way Mirror” on Twitter just yesterday. This begs just two questions – why aren’t you listening to Loathe yet, and when are Deftones taking Loathe out on tour? Much like Code Orange’s profile was boosted a few years back from a support slot, such an opportunity would obviously benefit Loathe, too.
