Touche Amore are one of the blog’s favorite post-hardcore/emo/whatever-you-wanna-call-them band. They’ve been pretty busy the past year, releasing a new record as well as 2 split EPs and touring a hell of a lot. However, the band announced that they will be taking a “break” for the time being to recuperate from their hectic schedules. Read the full statement from the band after the jump.
We would like to take a moment to thank you all for giving us an incredible last 6 years and 800 shows. We just ended this year’s touring in Gainesville, FL at The Fest and had an unforgettable time. Aside from an Australian tour in January 2015, we plan to take time off to remember how to live a normal life for a while. We hope you understand that for mental and physical health sake.. we need to relax. Many of us have ideas we plan to work on in our down time including side bands, label projects, design projects, and more!
Upcoming TA plans:
– January 2015 – Australian Tour w/ Every Time I Die
– Collaborative 7″ w/ Self Defense Family on Deathwish Inc, coming soon
– Album 4 writing.. when the time is right.
We by NO means are “breaking up” or going on some insane hiatus. We’ve never been able to sit still for too long so we’ll see how it goes. Xox
I can’t really blame them. Touring is tough work and they’ve been at it so hard for so long that they deserve to catch their breath for a while. Good on them!
