LDR is a testament to the unrelenting spirit of Finny McConnell and The Mahones. Life sucks at times – health fails, relationships end, loved ones die, and all you can do is pick yourself up and keep going. Though sometimes moving forward involves revisiting the past as The Mahones have musically done on Love + Death + Redemption , moving back towards the classic Mahones sound of the mid 2000s and before i.e. not as punky as as The Hunger and The Fight (though stuff like, Win Some, Lose Some, show the Mahones can still pogo with the best of ‘em). Love + Death + Redemption is is the Mahones moving forward and hey it’s gonna be alright.
