NJ punks Save Face recently signed to Epitaph and their first single for the label was the ripping "Bad," which we included on our songs we like from April 2018 playlist. Now the band has announced their first album for Epitaph, Merci, which includes "Bad" and new single "Heartache." Compared to the fired-up rager that is "Bad," "Heartache" is more of a slow-building, atmospheric emo-pop song that shows off a totally different side of Save Face. You can check it out for yourself via its official video (directed by Matt Bastos & Tyler Povanda) below. The album drops on July 13.

Save Face also announced a tour with Prince Daddy & the Hyena, including a Long Island show on August 3 at Amityville Music Hall (tickets). That show is also with Color Tongue and Fool Heavy. All dates are listed below.
