After a flurry of artist interviews, concerts and photos shoots Lou was able to quietly celebrate his birthday at home with Darla the Wonder Dog.

The highlight of the week may have been Phil Labonte and All That Remains releasing their new album “Victim of the New Disease” on the day before Lou’s birthday to thank him for his many years of supporting the band.

Lou added the following note to his social media feeds, “I am deeply appreciative of your birthday wishes today. I’m a very lucky man in many ways including a career that puts me in touch with both interesting people and free concert tickets. Plus, I have the best pup in the world. Please know how truly blessed I feel. I thank you. LB”
