touche amore record release livestream video

Touché Amoré recently held a livestream to celebrate the release of their new album “Lament”, seeing as how touring behind the album is put on hold until it’s safe to have live music indoors again (and presumably everyone’s vaccinated). If you happened to miss the stream when it happened, however, you’re in luck: Touché Amoré have archived the performance in its entirety, so you can watch the whole thing. It’s a full, 40-minute set performed inside of an empty venue, with a light show. The set includes the entirety of Lament, as well as non-album singles and a few highlights from their 2016 album Stage Four. It’s just the blistering post-hardcore performance you need, but almost certainly haven’t had the chance to see all year.

As part of the GRAMMY Museum’s Programs at Home series, Moderator Scott Goldman talks with Los Angeles post hardcore band Touché Amoré about the recent release of their fifth studio album, “Lament”. Since their formation in 2007, Touché Amoré has been burrowing through angst, alienation, cancer, and death throughout four adored studio albums. After over a decade of working through darkness, Lament, finds the light at the end of the tunnel. The album arrives as the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2016 release, Stage Four, which found vocalist Jeremy Bolm mourning and paying tribute to his late mother. Lament shines a light on what life for the band has been like since then, tackling themes of fragility, empathy, politics, and love while pushing forward a newfound sense of hope.
