You know when a band you really like puts out an amazing album and you’re super keen to see it live but then they just don’t tour? Like you keep waiting with baited breath as they well and truly exceed the time-frame within which it is acceptable to come and play that album for me and you?
For me, that was Touche Amore and their stunning album Is Survived By which they put out all the way back in September 2013 and which I have been waiting nearly an entire year to see played in the flesh.
But it’s finally happening. Early next year, they’re coming, here, to the what will be blisteringly hot shores of sunny Australia to play some shows. Seriously. It’s an Australian summer. Those black jeans and punk jackets aren’t going to go down too well.
But seriously if that wasn’t enough, it’s actually a co-headline tour with Every Time I Die, who, somewhat more fittingly, released their latest album From Parts Unknown a mere two months ago.
