Thrilled to be sharing the news, lead singer Eva Marie said, “We’re super excited to finally be releasing our album Love, Drugs & Misery. We can’t wait to show you guys the full scope of what we’ve been working on for so long. It was kind of a wild ride because when we’d completed the record, we were super proud of it, it was some of our best writing to date, and then the world shut down. It’s been long-awaited, much-anticipated, and there’s so much heart and soul in this record. I can’t wait for you guys to experience it with us.”
The official music video for “Blow” gives fans a sneak peek of the band’s frontwoman Eva Marie’s onscreen acting debut in a pivotal scene of The Retaliators. The film is premiering in theaters across North America on September 14. Eva Marie and Charnas both appear in the film, alongside some of the biggest names in rock: Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee, Five Finger Death Punch, Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, All Good Things, Cory Marks. Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx co-wrote and recorded the title song of the film.
The band joined NOTHING MORE, Asking Alexandria and Atreyu on their North America tour, earning media attention from Top Shelf Music Magazine, who praised, “Eva Under Fire was up first and this female-fronted Detroit metal group absolutely crushed it. They came out firing on all cylinders and had everyone jumping up and down from the get-go.” Fans can watch the band play at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento on October 9.

If you think rock n’ roll fairy tales are a thing of the past, you haven’t met Eva Under Fire. These Detroit rock upstarts got their start five years ago and instantly began cutting their teeth in the underground rock scene, building an enthusiastic fan base the old-fashioned way. However the band’s trajectory shifted toward the stratosphere when they sent an unsolicited demo to Better Noise Music, who recognized the band’s hybrid of rock, metal, pop and classic rock as something wholly unique.
That said, it took a lot of hard work for them to get to this point. The group’s roots go back to 2015 when Eva, guitarists Chris Slapnik and Rob Lyberg, bassist Ed Joseph and drummer Corey Newsom, decided to get together and write music that represented their diverse set of influences. The chemistry clicked and after releasing a well received full-length and two EPs, the band signed to Better Noise and spent the past two years working on their next album, their most ambitious and fully realized release to date.
