Love in the Ruins


We are Love in the Ruins, a band formed in 2018 by Dana Suchow and John Paul Davis. In the summer of 2018 we started writing songs for the love of it, and by winter of that year ended up with an album's worth of songs which became our first album Collapse,. Our second album, Distances was written in autum 2019 and recorded and mixed in 2020. It's out on March 26, 2021. We hope you'll listen to them and that it will move you to to find hope in these troubled times, to live and dance and love outside the lines.
