Touché Amoré have announced the release of their fifth studio album, Lament, which will be out on October 9th via Epitaph Records. The album arrives as the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2016 release, Stage Four.
Today, the band have also shared the first single from their forthcoming Ross Robinson produced record, “Limelight” which features Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra, Bad Books).
Vocalist Jeremy Bolm’s emotionally raw lyrics explore a space in love rarely treaded while guitarist Nick Steinhardt showcases his newly learned pedal steel skills. “When you’re connected to someone long enough, and you’ve both suffered losses and been there for one another, there’s an understanding and a beauty to the quiet moments. There’s a great line in ‘Pulp Fiction’ when Uma Thurman boasts knowing when you’ve found someone really special, when you can just ‘shut the fuck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence’. I imagined that you’d be shamed for casually omitting that a day or two may go by without realizing you haven’t kissed your partner, but at no point did things feel bad. You’re just in it and it feels like home.”
