Twitching Tongues are following 2015's Disharmony with Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred on March 9 via Metal Blade, their second album for the label and fourth overall. The first single is "Harakiri," which pairs crushing metalcore riffs with some hugely anthemic, clean-sung choruses, and it's got a breakdown that the kids are gonna go nuts for on tour this spring. Watch the David Brodsky-directed video below.

Speaking of tour, Twitching Tongues will be on the road in March with Hatebreed, Crowbar and The Acacia Strain, followed by a headlining run with True Love and Vamachara.

The run with True Love and Vamachara includes United Blood Fest and a Brooklyn show on March 30 at Saint Vitus (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Hatebreed also have upcoming shows with Killswitch Engage and Candiria, including NJ's Starland Ballroom on April 26 (tickets).

Crowbar have other dates as well, including a March 14 show at Brooklyn Bazaar with more bands TBA (tickets).

True Love haven't released an album sine 2016's great Heaven’s Too Good for Us, but they did release the ripping "The Other Way" for Triple B Records' awesome America's Hardcore Volume 4 in December 2017. Listen to that below. Vamachara just released their punishing new LP Despondent last month, and you can stream that below too.
