Deathwish Inc. signs Touche Amore

Official press release: Touche Amore are a thought provoking, passionate hardcore/punk band from Los Angeles, California. From the first strikes of their angular yet melodic chords, it's apparent that Touche Amore have awoken something long since forgotten in the hardcore/punk genre. Within each song they build an awe inspiring musical tension while impassioned vocalist Jeremy Bolm's shouts resonate, ripe with intellectual introspection. This collective outpouring of traditional hardcore anger and emotional hardcore openness ultimately coalesces into something beautiful, vulnerable, and refreshingly real. Shortly after their formation in late 2007, Touche Amore released their demo 7"EP on the No Sleep Records label. After touring the West Coast in support of that release, they recorded their debut album "...To the Beat of a Dead Horse" in early 2009. The album was co-released by 6131 Records and Collect Records (Geoff from Thursday's vinyl only imprint) record labels, and was praised by kids and press worldwide as one of the best releases of the year. Soon after, they hit the road with a wide variety of bands including Converge, Coalesce, Thursday, Envy, Bane, and more. On the heels of these travels, Touche Amore even managed to release a number of EPs, including splits with friends La Dispute and Make Do And Mend. Touche Amore will enter the studio this winter to record their new album, to be released on Deathwish Inc. in early-2011.

great band live, but this still seems like a flash in the pan idea for deathwish, can't see them pushing the necessary units to last more than a year

Is this a band that was started by employees of Deloitte & Touche? I saw them play once. Their sound is kinda dated.

YouGotScanned 11/20/2010 5:10:40 PM

Saw them with Converge. Thought their sound was refreshing as it brought an interesting blend of modern hardcore with classic screamo stuff. And I think the press release is effective too. fck the haters.

goner 11/20/2010 5:22:55 PM

me rikey

heartlesshardcore 11/20/2010 6:52:13 PM

this band rules. all their recorded efforts are great and I'm psyched that these guys got a contract from Deathwish.

fartfactory15 11/21/2010 2:13:05 AM

why i've seen this band(w/ converge) and la dispute(w/ ENVY) is beyond me blah

BaconEggAndCheeseSandwich 11/21/2010 11:35:48 AM

Stood outside while they played on tour with Envy. Wasn't impressed.

shameless 11/21/2010 2:33:33 PM

Douche Amore (Douche Love) toured with Thursday last year and completely ruined the show. Garbage. Thats it, Garbage

myrevolution 11/22/2010 7:59:35 PM

deathwish should sign douche amore's mom, she'd be a much better fit.

Jungleflip 11/24/2010 11:58:31 AM

You're all gays, this band is great.

tdaddyfunkypants 11/24/2010 5:08:06 PM
