LoveHateHero 2009 Promo Shot

LoveHateHero have just finished up their One Moment Management Tour with Before Their Eyes, I See Stars, Oceana, Eyes Set to Kill and Ice Nine Kills[citation needed] as well as their TerminaTOUR with Blessed by a Broken Heart, Agraceful, Karate Highschool, and Kiros.

In 2009 they were on the Dead or Alive Tour with I Am Ghost and Karate Highschool, the Revolver Tour with Eyes Set To Kill and Dreaming of Eden, the Napalm and Noise Tour with The Devil Wears Prada, All That Remains, and Story Of The Year as well as a monthlong Brazil Tour with Mr. Clown.

They played on the Vans Warped Tour 2009 at the Seattle, Portland, Fresno, San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Diego venues.

In 2010 they headlined the America Underwater Tour with Four Letter Lie, Sleeping With Sirens, Of Machines, and Destruction of a Rose, did their first European Tour with Blessed by a Broken Heart and are currently on the Wet Hot American Summer Tour with Young and Divine and The Venetia Fair. The band shot a music video for their first single off America Underwater for the song America Underwater.

In June 2010, the song "America Underwater" became available for purchase on the Rock Band Network for PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii.

It was announced on December 30, 2010, by Falling In Reverse via Stickam, that Scotty Gee was their new drummer. Shortly after, however, he was removed from Falling In Reverse. The band hasn't given any updates for a year, due in part that Kevin Thrasher is now the new lead guitarist of Escape The Fate.

Justin Whitesel briefly joined the band The Hollowed but left for unexplained reasons. He became a touring guitarist for many artists including Eyes Set To Kill on their summer tour with Falling In Reverse and For All Those Sleeping. Whitesel has since started the group XO Stereo and signed a worldwide record deal with Century Media Records.
