INTERVIEW: TOUCHE AMORE’S NEW STAGE

Los Angeles post-hardcore band Touché Amoré will be playing at Fowlers Live next Tuesday night on July 11, with Turnover and Endless Heights.

Lead vocalist Jeremy Bolm says the band is excited to return to Australia and fondly recalls the group’s first visit back in 2011.

“We were all excited getting to play a place we had never been to before, so that was an experience to remember,” Jeremy says.

“This is our first time being here in the quote-unquote winter, even though it feels like California’s winter where it’s still nice and sunny haha.”

Their current album Stage Four was released last September and has garnered acclaim for Jeremy’s ability to articulate his personal struggle.

The passing of Jeremy’s mother in 2014 was the lyrical focus, creating an incredibly emotional journey of his own experience.

“You come to realize at some point in anyone’s life, there’s a good chance they’ve probably lost someone,” Jeremy says.

“I’ve talked to a lot of people who said because of the record they find themselves trying to spend more time or appreciate their parents and grand-parents a little more.”

You might have seen them here in Adelaide before as they are no stranger to our beautiful city, with this being their fourth visit.

“I’ve never been much of a good sales person, but if they have any interest in seeing a punk band that’s interesting to see I recommend coming out,” Jeremy says.

“It’s a nice eclectic bill because Turnover is more of an indie-rock band, so you get a mellow side and an aggressive side.”

You can get tickets for the Adelaide show here.
