Teenage hardcore and skramz fans rejoice!!! Scene darlings Touche Amore will be releasing a live EP via Deathwish entitled “Live on BBC Radio 1“. Here is an official statement on the release -
Since their inception, Touche Amore have been touring relentlessly, playing their brand of emotional hardcore/punk everywhere from dingy basements to sprawling arenas. While traveling in the UK in 2011, they were invited to record at the legendary BBC Studios for “The Punk Show” with host Mike Davies. Being the music fanatics they are, Touche Amore excitedly accepted the offer. There they worked with acclaimed engineer Simon Askew (Pulp, PJ Harvey, Foo Fighters) during a half day of recording. With a trophy resume like that, you would think that Touche Amore would be presented here in a polished state, but the contrary is true. Here we experience four of their well known anthems in their most stripped down, road worn state. All at goose-bump inducing, speaker blowing volume.
Well so the album isn’t exactly a live album as in a concert recording, it’s more like a stripped down one take style recording like The Chariot always does. Not as cool as I was hoping when I first saw the press release but I am sure there will be tons of kids paying an extraordinaire amount for this vinyl on Ebay anyway…. You can listen the “live” version of “Home Away From Here” below.
