Safe Haven

Safe Haven will release their brand new album “Chasing the Sun” on August 28th via Live Love Records. Safe Haven is an American alternative rock-punk band from Southern California. Formed in the summer of 2003 in their parent’s garage in La Mirada, California. The group consists of three brothers Gil Sandoval(Vocals/Bass), Dan Sandoval(Drums), Mani Sandoval(Lead Guitar) alongside with childhood friend Josh Ledezma(Guitar). Early influences of acts such as Third Eye Blind, The Ataris, Jimmy Eat World, and Mxpx inspired the bands early songs of teenage angst and hope driven lyrics. Highly noted as a terrific live act amongst many christian and non-christian acts the band does not perform solely to either one market. Lyrically their albums coincide with their spirituality, personal experiences, and hope.

After three years the band landed a west coast tour with a three song demo performing at public parks, parking lots, bars, church’s, and clubs. Their debut album “Setting Up & Tearing Down” was released in 2007 independently after struggling financially to fund their own record. In 2009 the band was signed to indie label Live Love Records which released their second full-length album “In The Middle Of Destruction”. A percentage of these album sales would support various humanitarian projects in Africa and Guatemala. The band found itself on various tours across the U.S., Hawaii, Mexico, Central America, and Asia. In December of 2010 the band traveled to Puerto Barrios, Guatemala where they have currently sponsored a Children’s Orphanage for the past five years.

Safe Haven is now back in the studio recording their latest album at Flying Blanket Studios in Mesa, Arizona due August 28th with upcoming tours in Australia, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and in the U.S.
