Touché Amoré, Weds 15th Feb
The size of The Haunt means most gigs there are incredibly raw and real, so it’s the perfect venue to see the Californian post-hardcore rockers up close and personal. The band released their most recent album ‘Stage Four’ last year via Epitaph Records. The title references the fact it’s their fourth studio release as well as paying tribute to vocalist Jeremy Bolm’s mother who died of cancer in 2014.
It’s noticeably their best record by far, solidly hardcore all the way through, peaking at a phenomenal finish with ‘Skyscraper’. The five-piece are currently sounding like a mix between the classic post-hardcore we grew up loving circa 2005 and new, eye-opening post-hardcore you can dig out today. We can’t wait to see what Touché Amoré will bring to Brighton.
