Touche Amore & Pianos Become the Teeth // split

We're pairing up with Deathwish, Inc. to release a split with Touche Amore & Pianos Become the Teeth!

image

Touche Amore are a thought provoking, passionate band from Los Angeles, CA. Throughout their relentless touring and the release of last year's Parting The Sea Between Brightness and Me, the band has established itself as one of the most exciting young bands in contemporary hardcore/punk today.

Here, Touche Amore offer up the exceptional "Gravity, Metaphorically", a stripped down and discordant emotional roller coaster of a song. For over four minutes, Touche Amore rattle and buzz through tempo changes and jangly riffs, as vocalist/lyricist Jeremy Bolm pours out his heart and soul in his trademark way. A poignant step forward for a band that continues to impress with every effort.

image

Pianos Become The Teeth are one of the bands leading the latest generation of emotional hardcore/punk. Led by unique vocalist/lyricist Kyle Durfey, they create moving music with a focus on his powerfully poetic story telling capabilities.

With this release, Pianos Become The Teeth offer up their extraordinary new song "Hiding". Meandering melodic guitar work weaves in and out before Durfey expels "There's no good in your eyes anymore..." telling a weighty and complex tale of the subtle nuances of love and conflict. The song continues to push and pull as emotions do throughout it's five minute run. Slowly building only to beautifully crash in a way that only Pianos Become The Teeth can.

The split will be out digitally January 8, 2013 and physically on January 22, 2013. Pre-order details will be available soon.

Summer pre-orders, re-presses & new releases!

Preorders!


image

Cut Teeth's debut EP, Televandalism, completely rips and reminds us a lot of what we love so much about bands like These Arms Are Snakes. Please check them out and pick up the record if you haven't yet!

image

Prawn just got back back from their EU / UK tour and are getting ready to hit the road again with Calculator. Their new EP LP Ships is still up for pre-order on our store, though — an update on this one: it's been delayed significantly due to some issues with the audio on vinyl not sounding as good as we want it to — with the band having been overseas, for over a month, troubleshooting this has been a slower than normal process. We'll keep you posted.

Re-presses!


image

Essential summer listening just got a re-press.

image

Suis La Lune's phenomenal new full length record, Riala, went out of press really fast, you guys! We've got a re-press for it up now, though!

image

Long out of print, My Heart to Joy's Reasons to Be is the last hurrah of one of the most essential bands in our brief catalog. We've put in a re-press for the 7" and expect to have it in over the next month. Pre-order it here.

image

One of the more prominent splits we've ever been a part of, The Saddest Landscape & Pianos Become the Teeth's split 7" has also gotten a facelift and is getting the re-press treatment.

Out now!


We're more than halfway through what has been / is shaping up to be a really busy summer for us. In addition to the re-presses and pre-orders above, Pswingset's All Our False Starts LP, Sirs' S/T LP & Duck. Little Brother, Duck!'s Don't Take Our Filth Away! LP are all officially out now. Below is information on where you can pick up / listen to each.
