Love You to Death (formerly: The Pettit Project) was a pop punk band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada formed in 1999, signed to Affluence Music Group.

History[edit]

The Pettit Project was featured on the Drive-Thru Records stage of the Vans Warped Tour in 2002. They've played with several established bands over the years, including Fefe Dobson, similar-sounding pop group Hellogoodbye, and appeared on a mini-tour with Hedley (band) in 2006.

The Pettit Project was featured in season 3, episode 4 of the Canadian television series Radio Free Roscoe, "These Bossy Boots are Made for Walking", in 2004, where Lily, played by Kate Todd, attempts to arrange an interview with the band for RFR. An interview is arranged over the phone with Scott Komer, however it doesn't go well. Komer begins to express his frustration for having to always answer the same questions, so Ray decides to take control in an attempt to save the interview. Ray then visits Mickey's where The Pettit Project is preparing for their live set; He explains to the band how he's trying to make amends with his friend. The Pettit Project then performs their song "99 Lives" at the school dance, followed by a cover of Lily's song "Don't Tell Me What To Do", repairing Lily and Ray's friendship.

The Pettit Project became a major player on the web with over 119,000 plays on MySpace, 150,000 on MP3.com and 240,500 on PureVolume.

They became Love You to Death in February 2008, as a response to their frustration with people being unable to accurately pronounce or spell their band name.

Love You to Death opened for Silverstein (band) at the El Mocambo, in April 2010, for the Decade (Live at the El Mocambo) show.

With fifteen releases over the past sixteen years, their members have included musicians that went on to be in Avril Lavigne’s band, Not By Choice and Boys Night Out.

Love You to Death announced they were breaking up in January 2016 after releasing their final EP "Our Final Release 'Cause Paul's Dead".

The Pettit Project officially reunited in July 2014 with Scott Komer and former band members: Alison "the ton" Morris and Boys Night Out lead vocalist Connor Lovat-Fraser to record their live-off-the-floor album, "The Secret Diary of Allan's Kid", with the help of drummer Sam Guaiana and bassist Paul Shields. The album was released in August 2016, and features songs from the band's early years.
