Love Is the New Hate is the sixth album by the rock group Shihad. It was released on 2 May 2005, and yielded the singles "Alive", "All the Young Fascists", "Shot in the Head", "Dark Times" and "None of the Above".

The album is a return to Shihad's earlier heavier style, after an ill-fated attempt to make it big in the United States. The lyrics themselves are notably darker because of this - and are far more politically oriented than their earlier material, following their experiences touring the US under the Bush administration.

The album entered the New Zealand music charts at number two,[1] going Gold in its first week of release - and then Platinum two weeks later. It peaked at No. 11 on the ARIA Albums Chart.[2]

On 8 May 2006, the band released a Limited Edition copy of Love is the New Hate which came with a DVD of their 1 May 2005 performance in Aotea Square.
