Love Story’s End is an American rock band from musician/artist Clint Hagler. Fusing melodic hooks and hardcore grit, Love Story’s End delivers a performance packed with guitar-driven fury. Having shared the stage with acts like Soulfly, 10 Years, P.O.D., Incite, Framing Hanley, and more, Love Story’s End rounds out each set with their own brand of anthemic metal songs. Lyrical content and melody fill the heart of each song, adding Hagler’s guttural rock scream to compliment the most chaotic moments. Whether performing a cleverly twisted ballad or menacing juggernaut, Love Story’s End leaves it all on the stage.
