The hotly tipped post-hardcore heroes just released a split seven-inch that sold out in seconds, but you can stream all four tracks right here. Free music = awesome.
You might not know about them yet, but La Dispute and Touche Amore are two of the finest new hardcore bands in the world today. And here's proof - their ultra-rare split seven-inch available to stream via SoundCloud.
La Dispute in particular you'll be hearing a LOT more about in the very near future, as there are whispers the Michigan quintet will be playing on these shores sooner rather than later. They've got a new album on its way - their second, probably to come early next year - and they're finalising UK release plans as we speak. Fans of everything from Jawbreaker to Fugazi will find much to love here, as their serrated, gutsy post-hardcore stands head and shoulders above the pack.
And Touche Amore aren't so much 'reinventing' screamo as 'doing it way better than most other bands'. If we were to say they're made up of a spattering of Converge, a dab of Raein and La Quiete and a light sprinkling of pg99 and that sends you into fit of joy, congratulations on finding your new favourite band. If none of those bands mean anything to you, put it this way: they will make the other bands in your iTunes library run for cover like the sissy-ass bitches they are.
Simply click play on each individual player to hear the tunes.
