    Touché Amoré have announced a pop-up gallery in Los Angeles. The full press release can be fund below.

    Acclaimed indie hardcore band Touché Amoré is pleased to present an album release party and pop-up gallery of 28 original works by collage artist Anthony Gerace. The gallery will be at 1814 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA and the show will run from September 14th-September 17th with an opening reception Wednesday September 14th from 7pm-10pm.
    Touché Amoré’s new album Stage Four will be released on September 16th and it deals with the death of front man Jeremy Bolm’s mother in late 2014. The album’s cover and interior art was curated by the band’s resident art director/designer/guitar player Nick Steinhardt. Finding poignant inspiration in the extreme emotional challenge their singer Jeremy Bolm experienced while packing up his other’s belongings left behind in her home, Steinhardt–with the help of collage artist Anthony Gerace and photographer Ryan Aylsworth—documented the house in a unique and touching before-and-after book; first, as it had been the Bolms were still living within its walls, and then again after he’d removed everything following his mother’s passing. “It’s a documentation and visual story of re-arranging and compartmentalizing emptiness along with the warmth of the human imprint while moving through life’s natural course,” says Steinhardt.

    London-based artist Anthony Gerace assembles collages by cutting vintage photographs into squares and carefully combining them with colorful tiles to create abstract and thought-provoking images. He has had work appear in The New York Times and The Guardian. Anthony Gerace and all members of Touché Amoré will be present at the opening reception on September 14th to sign advance copies of the art book.

    Touché Amoré will tour in support of Stage Four, including performances at Riot Fest Denver, Riot Fest Chicago, and Made in America. Additionally, Touché Amoré will play an in-store at Fingerprints in Long Beach, CA on September 21st.

    I take it you've just given up on the whole spell checking nonsense, huh Jason?

    This is a neat thing.

    All the words were spelled correctly. I just forgot an "o." Thanks for pointing it out in a nice way.

    No problem, friend. Just need to be "that guy", sometimes.

    Totally unrelated, but what is the current podcast schedule?
