The Werks announced the return of founding bassist Chuckie Love into the group. Love helped form the psychedelic dance rock act with drummer Rob Chafin and guitarist Chris Houser in 2005.

Love reunites with The Werks as they celebrate their 15 year anniversary. The band is also prepping for the 11th annual The Werk Out Music and Arts Festival at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio just down the road from the band’s native Dayton. The festival goes down July 23 and 24 and will also see performances from Papadosio, Dopapod, Lespecial and more.

“We are stoked to have our brother Chuckie Love back in the band! His signature bass style, vocals, and stage energy will help bring an excitingly fresh and nostalgic flavor to the show,” Chafin said in a statement. “We would like to thank Jake Goldberg for holding down the low end the past five years and wish him the best moving forward.”

Chris Houser also noted about Love: “He and I have been playing together since 2004 in various acts. Chuck has always embodied the true original soul of The Werks. Our styles have always seemed to sync and I’m very excited to have him back in the group.”

“Rob, Houser, and I started this, it just seems right that we see it through,” Love added. “It’s funny sometimes how things come full circle.”
