Touché Amoré Sign To Roc Nation

In a move that has a lot of people wondering when Jay Z and Touché Amoré are going to tour together, the five piece hardcore outfit have signed to Roc Nation for management, whose roster includes Big Sean, Kanye West, Rihanna and Shakira. Yeah.

This may not come as much of a surprise since these two pictures came from Roc Nation’s Grammy brunch a few weeks ago. The band’s manager was hired by Roc Nation and presumably brought Touché along with them.

Touché Amoré just released their collaborative split 7″ with Self Defense Family two days ago (you can read …

REVIEW: Self Defense Family / Touché Amoré – ‘Self Love’ 7-Inch Split

Artist: Self Defense Family / Touché Amoré
Album: Self Love 7-Inch Split
Genre: Post-Hardcore 
Label: Deathwish Inc.

2010 saw post-hardcore acts Touché Amoré and La Dispute team up for a split titled Searching For A Pulse/The Worth of the World, which, to a minor degree, featured a bit of collaboration between the two bands. On the split’s four songs, Touché vocalist Jeremy Bolm and La Dispute vocalist Jordan Dreyer employed dueling vocals and complementing backing tracks to one another’s side. This proved, by most accounts, a “good idea” — it garnered an 86% from Absolutepunk’s Adam Pfleider, a 4.5/5 …

Stream Self Defense Family’s Split EP With Touche Amore

Earlier this year, Self Defense Family announced that they will be putting out a collaborative split 7″ EP with Touche Amore. The split, entitled Self Love, will be released on Tuesday, March 10, via Deathwish Inc.

The EP was created by all fifteen members of both bands collectively with the help of producer Will Yip (Title Fight, Circa Survive, Tigers Jaw) in Conshohocken, PA.

UTG PHOTOS: Rise Against & Touché Amoré (9/26/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer Derek Scancarelli to Best Buy Theater in New York City to photograph Rise Against on September 29, 2014.

Rise Against. The two words can bring together mass amounts of people, regardless of their demographic or where they call home. Whether the audience consists of hundreds or tens of thousands, the legendary Chicago punk quartet will deliver to the best of their ability, because they simply don’t know how to do otherwise.

Last weekend, the band played the Best Buy Theater in the heart of New York City. Times Square was host to a sold-out …

Listen To A New Song Titled “Help Me / End Me” From No Limbs

Sometimes, it’s good to hear some good old-fashioned hardcore music. The type of hardcore that is short and sweet, raw-sounding, and so broken down that it makes you want to jump around your bedroom and wreak havoc like you’re in the most intense mosh pit ever.

Oakland, CA’S four-piece hardcore outfit No Limbs gives us the best example of this type of music in their latest effort. The band will release a 7″ self-titled record that will consist of seven songs that clock in at eight minutes total. Now that’s an old-fashioned hardcore record to the point that it …

Rise Against Announce Fall Tour With Touché Amoré

Though Rise Against‘s popularity amongst the mainstream rock crowd has continued to soar over the past decade, their choice in opening acts shows they haven’t forgotten where they came from.
