This post was a long time coming. We expected more profile pics, so we chose not to post any. Not sure what kind of logic we used to come to that decision. We all make mistakes. Will you forgive your Loyal Wife?
Still grateful for you all. Those with courage to share your mugs and those w/o. And it’s never too late to share. Email
You’re beautiful. Each one of you.
Loyal Wife took a break from taking a break and stepped into Naylor Studios last week.
Half the song is complete. We’ll update you when our amps are back on.
Chat about it on our Facebook page.
Sunset Alliance Records presented an idea about a mix tape compilation a few weeks ago. The track listing would be decided by vote. Listeners were asked to submit their wish list thru Facebook, Twitter and email to establish what songs would make it on to the compilation. Check out which Loyal Wife song won the popularity contest!
*The ominous title of the compilation should be taken as a good luck charm against this particularly active flu season. By listening to this comp you will…
A) Rid your body of the flu, if already stricken
B) Shield yourself from the flu by these musical antibodies
C) Get 14 “fan-approved” songs for free
D) Find love
E) Find greater love, if shared
F) (The obligatory) All of the above

Today, January 15, 2013, marks the 1-year anniversary of the great support and generosity we received through KickStarter. Our supporters were responsible for the completion of our debut, full length album, Faux Light.
We will always appreciate your pledges and kind support. Every time we open the record he have each of your names that we can wink at, hug, and even rub across our bodies when we are feeling particularly grateful and/or lonely.
All joking aside, you provided a way for us to present our record the way we intended and we love you for that. We hope you appreciate the rewards we sent out and you enjoy the album. We (Ashley, Dave, Spencer, Blake & Sam) worked really hard and hope it payed off for more than just us.
2013 should have more great things in store for us!
Please take a moment to see the list of Faux Light contributors
David Jensen and Ashley Taylor welcomed their two newest members of the band just before the New Year.
This restructuring will surely inspire plenty of love and angst for future restless records. Expect new music from Loyal Wife as soon as we can get Louis & Lucy to finish laying tracks on their own screamo soundtrack.
Loyal Wife has much to be grateful. Our families, our health, our prosperity, and the music we made together. We are also grateful for those who find interest in what we do together. We want to offer Faux Light for free today and tomorrow. We hope it lightens your holiday and serves as a worthy bookend to your year.
Loyal Wife had a great feature in the Phoenix New Times written by Serene Dominic a couple months back. We just wanted to make the complete interview available to you, by permission of author.

In their latest list of recommended bands and albums, Absolute Punk has listed Loyal Wife, Faux Light. We are blushing. Thanks Jack Applebee.
Happy Body Slow Brain is comin back to PHX! Our good friends will show us how it’s done No-Cal-style. These guys may be the best live band you see this year and also quite kind, good looking fellas, if we’re honest.
Joining the bill, Phillip Hanna of Tugboat & his fine new band, Of the Painted Choir, as well as Braden McCall & gents (Dave’s fave local band) Dead Wildlife.
