TOUCHE AMORE

 touche amore notts 2015

Genre: Post hardcore

Hometown: Burbank, California

Background: Formed in 2007, Los Angeles, California's Touche Amore blend jangly post-hardcore with emotionally raw screamo to create their unique sound. Made up of singer Jeremy Bolm, guitarists Clayton Stevens and Nick Steinhardt, bassist Tyler Kirby, and drummer Elliot Babin, the band has a plaintive and emotionally intense sound that blends the influence of bands like Jawbox and Converge into something strangely coherent. The group made their debut in 2009 with To the Beat of a Dead Horse, an album which would eventually gain the attention of Jacob Bannon's label Deathwish, Inc., who released their follow-up effort, Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me, in 2011. Their third album, Is Survived By, arrived in 2013. - Billboard.

What the press says: "There's no subtle way to put it: Touche Amore definitely hit it out the park. Jeremy Bolm and his posse have taken the time and care since 2011 to ensure that Is Survived By plays off as not only their most mature and heartfelt record to date. It's the record that could well define Touche Amore's legacy. Bolm's candor, vulnerability and honesty is what makes Is Survived By explicitly profound. It's his diary laid bare for the listener. Poetry in motion. The power, honesty and emotional traction he creates with his gruff, hoarse and throaty delivery resonates like a powder keg lit afire." - Punknews.org

What Rescue Rooms Says: "Beyond excited and massively happy to have the post-hardcore legends here!!"
