Loverboy release Hurtin' lyric video


Loverboy have released a lyric video for their track Hurtin’.

It’s the band’s first single since their 2014 album Unfinished Business, and they’ve unveiled it in the lead-up to their North American tour at the end of the month.

Guitarist Paul Dean says: “I took what they gave me, changed it up a bit, and came up with a melody and a couple of hooks. The idea was to create an anthem for the home crowd to sing about putting a ‘hurtin’ on the other team.

“We worked really hard to get it just right for all our Loverboy friends and fans.”

The band kick off their North American run at Bossier City’s Diamond Jacks Casino in Los Angeles on May 28.
