Cursive release "Botch Job" single and music video from upcoming record, 'Devourer'

Cursive have released their latest single "Botch Job" and announced their upcoming album, Devourer, which will be out on September 13th, via Run For Cover Records

The band also unveiled a video for "Botch Job," the second in a series of horror-themed clips following the lead single "Up and Away." 

Devourer reflects Tim Kasher's obsession with the arts as the band pushes their artistic boundaries, creating compelling content and sound. The album explores heavy themes, expanding Cursive's musical and thematic boundaries. 

He explains:

I am obsessive about consuming the arts. Music, film, literature. I've come to recognize that I devour all of these art forms then, in turn, create my own versions of these things and spew them out onto the world. It's positive; you're part of an ecosystem. But I quickly recognized that the term, 'Devourer,' may also embody something gnarly, sinister.

In support of Devourer, Cursive will begin their fall U.S. tour on October 18th in Omaha, NE and will perform at Riot Fest on September 20th.
