Touche Amore Respond To Their Fred Phelps Shirt Controversy

Touche Amore recently released a shirt that has Fred Phelps’ face on it, with his birth date/death and the words “Good Riddance” under it. Shortly after releasing the shirt, the band apparently received a lot of negative feedback which prompted them to write a lengthy statement on the issue.

They explain that this is a redone version of a print they made six years ago. After Phelps’ passing a few days ago, they decided to reprint it with some slight modifications. You can read all of what they had to say by taking a look below the jump.

Adrian Garza’s ‘Best of 2013′ In Music

Well it’s that time of the year where we in the music world collectively follow through to toss in our 2 cents worth of opinions (once more) by means of our “best of” lists. After much thought about it – and believe me, I’ve been working on my list since last month – I’ve finally had the time to slave away and finish this beast off at the end of my college finals week

2013 was such a great year for music and for me as well. There were plenty of artists who either put out incredible debut full-lengths, and …

Tyler Osborne’s ‘Best of 2013′ In Music

It’s coming to the end of 2013, and it’s been a really weird year. Almost every band and their mother has reunited, pop music is now punk music, and ten year anniversary tours are now a norm within the industry. Admittedly, this wasn’t my favorite year for music. Sure, there have been a lot of good albums, but I think the hype machine has been chugging along at a faster rate in 2013, promoting mediocre to good records as something that are better than they actually are.

All of that being said, I do believe that there were still some …

Touche Amore Announce 2014 Tour With Support From Mewithoutyou

If you have seen Touche Amore or La Dispute at any point since either band rose to prominence, you’ve probably overhead a snobby music fan in the back of the room loudly explaining to their friends that both bands harness a style similar to what Mewithoutyou delivered once upon a time. In 2014 fans will have their first chance to see some of these groups perform together, and I can tell you right now most shows will be some of the hottest tickets all spring.

Breaking this afternoon, Touche Amore have announced a string of 2014 performances alongside Mewithoutyou. The …

REVIEW: Touché Amoré – Is Survived By

Band: Touche Amore
Album: Is Survived By
Genre: Post-Hardcore
Label: Deathwish Inc.

The first time I heard Touché Amoré I was in a dark church basement in Philadelphia, getting ready to see hometown favorites Title Fight and The Menzingers. I had heard nothing about Touché other than the claims of a fan waiting in line who excitedly told me how they were absolutely sure I would be a fan of the band following their set. To this day, I have not had such a visceral love after seeing a band perform without any previous knowledge of them going in. …

WATCH: Touché Amoré Release Video For “Harbor”

“I’d always envisioned myself as a giver.”

The Los Angeles based post-hardcore act Touché Amoré have released a music video for their single “Harbor” off of their well received, powerhouse of a record Is Survived By, which is out now.

The video, which showcases the band performing in front of various backdrops is simple by nature, but, with a band like Touché Amoré, I wouldn’t have expected anything less. Always leaving the simplicity of the music and sound to direct their impressions as a band, the video is just as hard hitting as the track. “Harbor” is one of …

Touché Amoré Robbed In Detroit

I hate hearing about bands being robbed while they are out on tour. It kills me every time to think that there’s someone out there willing to take advantage of some of these bands who don’t have huge secure tour buses and body guards and whatever else to protect them and their belongings. Touché Amoré have become the latest victims of opportunist thieves and have had all of their personal belongings and cash stolen from their van. You can check out a tweet from the band and a couple from Elliot Babin on what happened.
