Tel Aviv is 5667 miles from New York and 7552 miles from Los Angeles but for the rising hard rock band Abused Romance, music knows no bounds. Abused Romance was founded in 2007 when childhood friends Amit Ofir and Meir Yaniv crossed paths on the Hollywood rock scene. Soon enough the sights and sounds of the Los Angeles streets sunk in and the explosive 7 song EP was born. â€œThe response from the EP was so overwhelming we realized we had something big and decided to go back to our home town of Tel Aviv, where we channeled our experiences into our songsâ€ says guitarist Amit.
The buzz in Tel Aviv united Amit and Meir with Bassist Aetam Jakob and Drummer Roy Chen. Abused Romance became a tight live unit of four that becomes one when the first note is struck on stage. Soon after, the band relocated to Portland, Oregon hitting the local scene and building a strong following of dedicated fans. In 2008 the band headed to New York City and spent three months recording their debut album, â€œNaked Faces,â€ which was released in March 2009.
A few more miles in the air and in 2009 Abused Romance is back in LA coming full circle. The single â€œHit and Runâ€ will be released early May 2009 along with a frantic music video.
Abused Romance is proud to be represented by â€œHit and Run Records,â€ a record label founded by the band that is solely dedicated to promoting and marketing the band.
