Touché Amoré - ‘Stage Four’ Cover

This album deserves your attention.

Ostensibly a reference to this being their fourth full-length, ‘Stage Four’ actually alludes to the cancer that recently claimed frontman Jeremy Bolm’s mother’s life.

It’s tough and worthy subject matter for the L.A. quintet’s peculiar brand of hardcore, and while there are enough shards of aggression to remind you this is punk, it’s a deeply personal concept album running the full gamut of emotions.

In sorrow they have found opportunity, and use every single one of the musical tools at their disposal. Intimate, impressive, and ultimately cathartic, ‘Stage Four’ is well worth your time.
