The first single and first track off of All We Love We Leave Behind, Aimless Arrow, has me more than a bit confused. I’m not sure if this is a continuation of their doing more progressive (i.e. Axe to Fall) and less brutal stuff or if it’s straight skramz revivalist.
But then again, they did do an Entombed cover on a new split with Napalm Death. Maybe I’m just getting old and I’m sad that it’s not exactly like Jane Doe.
she’s the only one for meeee
Am I worried about these changes I see in one of the last bastions of real hardcore nerdery? Not really. It’s less dissonant and intense, but your girlfriend probably won’t complain when you put it on because it sounds like that one tumblrcore band she really loves instead of a record cut out of a chalkboard.
And if 90′s hardcore bands start jocking the style of new bands that jock obscure 90′s hardcore bands, does that signal the beginning of the tr00pocalypse? The sounding of the seventh trumpet, if you will. Are kids going to be mad that oldbros are cramping their style and descend to new depths of butthurt, or will they feel totally honored and fangirl like they just got backstage at a One Direction show? Will we finally see this horrible resurgence of the NFC go up in flames and return to simpler times of neon and partycore? One can only hope. Either way, we’ll probably get to enjoy seeing a bunch of Converge fanboys black out on rageahol because of this.
The real question is, will Touche Amore pull another stunt like the now legendary NEGATIVE APPROACH diss? Considering that they’re doing a euro tour with them, we’ll probably find out soon.
They’re also doing a US tour in support of the new album dropping with Kvelertak and Nails and I AM FUCKING STOKED AND READY TO GET BUCK!
The album’s due October 9th and I’m probably going to spend too much money on the double LP :(
How many awesome opportunities for shooping dicks into pictures are we gonna see come out of these tours? How long until we start seeing ‘defend tr00 mathcore’ slogans pop up? Is it even cool to like mathcore? Are you going to replace the cartridge on your turntable to spin this? What do you think of J. Bannon’s mad design skillz? Do you think they’ll link this on their facebook?
