  • Cevin Soling, who was also executive producer of the film Relax, It's Just Sex starring Jennifer Tilly and Lori Petty, is the primary songwriter for The Love Kill Theory. Says Cevin, "This deals with depression (typically as a response to social conditions - see "Something Goes Around") and the desperate hope for escape all while the possibilities for escape are perpetually self-sabotaged. There is an earnest recognition of the tremendous beauty that is at the core of the person that seeks to be freed, and that is the great tragedy in the literal sense of the word." (Check out our interview with Cevin Soling.)
