Touché Amoré Announce New Album, Lament
LA post-hardcore heroes Touché Amoré have announced details of their brand-new album, Lament.
The band’s fifth studio effort – which was produced by the one and only Ross Robinson – will be released on October 9 (pre-order it here), with excellent new single Limelight featuring Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull available to stream now.
“When you’re connected to someone long enough, and you’ve both suffered losses and been there for one another, there’s an understanding and a beauty to the quiet moments,” explains frontman Jeremy Bolm of the meaning behind the song. “There’s a great line in Pulp Fiction when Uma Thurman boasts knowing when you’ve found someone really special, when you can just, ‘Shut the fuck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.’
“I imagined that you’d be shamed for casually omitting that a day or two may go by without realizing you haven’t kissed your partner, but at no point did things feel bad. You’re just in it and it feels like home.”
Previously speaking about Touché’s work with producer Ross on album number five, Jeremy explained: “This time around, we need to take a chance with the unfamiliar. Someone who would take us out of our comfort zone. Enter Ross Robinson. A man who knows no comfort zone. I followed his career all through my youth to being a young adult. When we returned from our recent Midwest tour, we entered the studio to record a song with Ross and see if there was chemistry…”
