Finch will release their new studio album, Back to Oblivion, on September 30th 2014 via Razor & Tie. The band has also launched the new album pre-order bundles at finch.merchnow.com. Bundles include CD, digital download, t-shirts, hoodies and a dog tag bottle opener.
Back to Oblivion marks the return of Finch with the band’s first full length album in over nine years. The Southern California band has undeniably created a lasting, formidable body of work with their two studio albums and EPs – singer Nate Barcalow acknowledges that 2002’s What It Is To Burn all but “defined post-hardcore early in the decade”, while 2005’s Say Hello to Sunshine continued to shape its direction. The band dignified the demand for a celebration of What It Is To Burn’s 10th anniversary by reforming after a hiatus and playing select sold-out shows across the country in 2013. Inspired by the creative surge brought on by these shows, Finch rendered these contradictions moot with Back to Oblivion, their long-awaited third LP and a new, bold chapter in the band’s legacy. Back to Oblivion itself is a paradoxical idea. This is Finch reinvigorated, brimming with the inspiration of their earliest days; the opposite of the negation implied by “oblivion.” But as a songwriting unit, they’re challenging themselves by going deep into the unknown – this is by far Finch’s most introspective and demanding work from a lyrical standpoint. The album was produced by Brian Virtue (Deftones, 30 Seconds to Mars, Janes Addiction, Audio Slave).
This past summer, Finch returned to the Warped Tour as a respected veteran; this was once a scene where they had been the newcomer with something to prove.
Finch will be heading out this Fall on their headlining tour with support fromMaps & Atlases and Weatherbox. The tour kicks off on September 30th in San Diego, CA (tour dates below). A pre-sale is live now here http://soundrink.com/offsite/tour/finch.
