Touché Amoré have taken the underground music scene by storm. This siege was non more apparent than when legendary label Deathwish announced the pre-orders for band’s latest LP, Parting The Sea Between Brightness and Me, only to have their servers crash from the overwhelming amount traffic that flooded in. Servers were up and running again in no time and fans were able to purchase thousands of limited LPs, as second pressings were ordered up almost immediately.
Touché Amoré recently embarked on their first US headlining tour along with supporting acts Pianos Become the Teeth and Seahaven. Many would consider this headlining run long over due, as the band has seen a meteoric rise the forefront of the melodic hardcore underground since the release of their last LP, ..To The Beat of a Dead Horse on 6131 Records last year. We caught up with Touché Amoré singer and frontman Jeremy Bolm for an interview during this time as the LP was steadily climbing the ranks.
The one and only, Philly Hardcore Shows proudly brought this touring package to South Philadelphia’s Broad Street Ministry where additional support from bands New Miseries and Daylight were welcomed along with where hundreds of rabid fans who got the sustenance they have so desired. Our other-worldly photographer, Dante Torrieri of Useless Rebel Imaging was on hand to deliver you the tour’s definitive photo set (not that we have a biased opinion at all).
So without further ado..
