Touche Amore (playing ‘Dead Horse’) & PBTT (playing ‘Old Pride’) touring together
Post-hardcore fans: get ready to party like it's 2009/2010. Old friends Touche Amore and Pianos Become the Teeth have just announced a tour together, and they'll be playing their respective debut albums -- 2009's ...To The Beat of a Dead Horse and 2010's Old Pride -- in their entirety. You may remember that these bands toured together back in the day, and their sets back then were full of songs from these albums. Neither band had started incorporating clean vocals yet (which PBTT now exclusively use), and the songs were heavier in general back then, so this is gonna be a fun blast from the past and not your average tour for either band. (It was actually on a 2013 split with Touche Amore that PBTT debuted their new, clean-vocal-oriented sound.) Very well-matched support comes from newer hardcore band Soul Glo.
PBTT will also be playing songs from their similarly screamo-oriented sophomore album The Lack Long After. They say:
We are so excited to announce that we'll be playing alongside Touche Amore for their 10 year 'To The Beat of a Dead Horse' tour. We're doing something we haven't done in a long, long time and playing an all heavy set with songs from both 'Old Pride' and 'The Lack Long After'. It's been 10 years since the release of our first full length record and we couldn't imagine a better way to celebrate Touche Amore than to play songs from the time we met and first started touring together.
The tour includes a NYC show on April 12 at Brooklyn Bazaar. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/22) at 10 AM. All dates below.
Touche Amore are also opening some of Balance & Composure's final shows.
