LA’s ever artful, post-hardcore giants Touché Amoré have today shared their new video for ‘Palm Dreams’, the first single released from upcoming new album Stage Four. Directed by Tyler Davis and filmed in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles, the video pays homage to David Lynch’s noir masterpeice Mulholland Drive. Watch the video (via Pitchfork), below.
Stage Four will be the fourth album from the band, and the follow-up to the 2013’s Is Survived By. Written after the death of lead singer Jeremy Bolm’s mother in late 2014, the album takes its title from the cancer that she was battling. On the new album Bolm says; “I don’t open up to people too much in regular life, but when I’m writing songs, I want to be as open and as honest as possible”.
Since forming across 2007 and 2008, the Burbank, California band’s sound, with its melodic sonic assault and impassioned vocals, has grown tighter and more refined throughout their upward-moving career. Jeremy Bolm, along with guitarists Nick Steinhardt and Clayton Stevens, bassist Tyler Kirby, and drummer Elliot Babin have created a trajectory for themselves through hard work and dedication. With Stage Four, their fourth and biggest album to date, they are cementing their status as one of rock music’s most talented, relatable, and visceral acts.
And, in case you missed it, last week the band dropped single number two, ‘Displacement’. Listen in, below.
Stage Four is out on September 16th via Epitaph Records.
