Album Notes
Love Sex Confusion, the band’s fourth studio album of new songs, brings a blend of guitar-laden tracks and commanding drum and bass lines that generate the feeling of a live performance.

“We wanted to make the songs on the album much more ‘danceable’ than we did on previous albums,” guitarist Jim Bilus says. “Overall, we wanted to make a rock and roll album that would really shine when we played it live. We tried to create a bigger and brighter sound that would be fun for our audience.”

Love Sex Confusion is equal parts of lead singer John Dauer’s powerful operatic vocals, guitarist Jim Bilus’ rocking garage-y guitar riffs, and the burly rhythms dispensed by drummer Jason Young and bassist Mark Stolze.

Armed with Love Sex Confusion, the Ruse will launch a national tour starting on April 1st in Chicago at the Elbow Room in conjunction with the March 23, 2010 street date. The album was produced by Jorge Vivo and the band in their hometown of Los Angeles. With Love Sex Confusion, the Ruse continues to combine honest lyrics with a selfless message, swinging from stripped down rock to moving, moody, and melodic ballads.

No stranger to television, the band has had over a dozen tracks and a cameo role on MTV’s “The Hills;” they performed in an episode of HBO’s “Entourage;” and several songs from the band’s last album, Midnight in the City, are in current use on MTV’s new show, “The Buried Life.” will make Love Sex Confusion songs available for fans to play - the Ruse is a favorite with over 900,000 plays on the website.

iTunes has featured the Ruse’s “Beautiful is Gone” as Single of the Week and the band has had the distinct pleasure of playing an opening show for U2 at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, CA.
