In the time since releasing their great 2016 album Stage Four, Touche Amore released a live album, a re-recorded version of their 2009 debut, and the new song "Green," and now they've returned with another new single, "Deflector," which was produced by Ross Robinson, who worked on classic albums by At the Drive-In, Glassjaw, The Blood Brothers, and just about every nu metal band, and frontman Jeremy Bolm explains the decision to work with Ross:

This time around, we need to take a chance with the unfamiliar. Someone who would take us out of our comfort zone. Enter Ross Robinson. A man who knows no comfort zone. I followed his career all through my youth to being a young adult. When we returned from our recent Midwest tour, we entered the studio to record a song with Ross and see if there was chemistry…

"Deflector" does indeed find the band covering new ground, while also sounding like the Touche Amore you know and love. It's a great new single, and hopefully there's more where this came from. Listen below.

"Deflector" and "Green" will come out as a 7" single on olive green and white splatter vinyl, which you can pre-order.

As mentioned, Touche are touring North America with La Dispute and Empath, including NJ's Starland Ballroom on 11/22 (tickets), and they're also doing a EU/UK tour with Deafheaven and Portrayal of Guilt. All dates are listed below.
