About Love Amongst Ruin

When you’re bouncing back, you live for the next ricochet. Having poured all of his confusion and frustration over being removed unexpectedly from the drum stool of Placebo in 2007 into the eponymous 2010 debut album of his own project Love Amongst Ruin, Steve Hewitt ended the promotional tour full of creative fire. “We’d launched the band and made our presence felt,” he says. “Critically acclaimed record, it did really well, we gained a lot of fans and established everything. It was well received all round Europe so job done.” ! Well, job begun. Launching LAR had been an emancipating process for Steve, a mission to prove his musical worth not just to the legions of Placebo fans avidly waiting to see what he’d do next but also to himself. Having served time at the stool of such diverse acts as The Boo Radleys, grit-rockers Breed, baggy chart stars K-Klass and Placebo – with whom he tasted huge global success, sharing the journey from post-Britpop indie hype band to multi-million selling international superstars – he had a lot to live up to, and the succinct yet wide-reaching ‘Love Amongst Ruin’, with its twists of New Order/Depeche Mode electronica, Can/ Kasabian motorika, Cure atmospherics and hardcore Metallica riffs, had firmly positioned him as an alt-rock contender in his own right. Now Steve emerged from the tour with new songs already written, tighter and more accomplished songs largely free of the bitterness and bewilderment that had driven the debut.
