Touche Amore at Santos in 2011 (more by Rebecca Reed)
Touche Amore

As discussed, Touche Amore are returning this year with their third full length album, Is Survived By (due out 9/24 via Deathwish), and they've just finally revealed the first taste of the album: its opening track, "Just Exist." Teaming up with producer Brad Wood (Sunny Day Real Estate, mewithoutYou), the band have taken on a more polished sound than the raw hardcore of their previous two LPs. And from the atmospheric sounds of this first song, it's likely they'll find themselves with some comparisons to their Deathwish labelmates Deafheaven, rather than some of the bands they've previously been grouped with like La Dispute or Title Fight. That kind of boundary crossing is what's keeping this band forward-thinking and interesting with each new album, and this is one of their best songs yet. Check out the new track below.

Touche will be in NYC when their tour with AFI hits Webster Hall on 10/10 (sold out).
