Since their inception, Touche Amore have been touring relentlessly, playing their brand of emotional hardcore/punk everywhere from dingy basements to sprawling arenas. While traveling in the UK in 2013, they were invited to record at the legendary BBC Studios for “The Punk Show” with host Mike Davies for a second time (the band released their “Live on BBC Radio 1 Vol .1 in 2012 on Deathwish). Again, Touche Amore worked with acclaimed engineer Simon Askew (Pulp, PJ Harvey, Foo Fighters) and assistant Phil Deacon during a half day of recording.
Touche Amore “Live on BBC Radio 1” Vol. 2 offers heartfelt renditions of recent “Is Survived By” anthems “Just Exist”, “Harbor”, and “Non Fiction”, as well as “Gravity, Metaphorically”, originally on their split w/ Pianos Become The Teeth.
Also on September 30th, Touche Amore will re-press the TA/Title Fight split 7” EP on Secret Voice Records. This EP was originally released via Sealegs as a Record Store Day 2013 exclusive, and features Touche Amore covering Title Fight’s “Crescent-Shaped Depression” while Title Fight covers Touche Amore’s “Face Ghost”.
Pre-order info and more Touche Amore news coming soon.
