Jeremy Bolm, Nick Steinhardt, Clayton Stevens, Tyler Kirby, and Elliot Babin are Touche Amore, a Burbank, California band noted for its urgent, impassioned, and melodic post-hardcore sound. Stage Four is the outfit’s 4th studio album, and in addition to the obvious allusion to the number 4, the title is a reference to the highest and often fatal phase of cancer, which Bolm lost his mother to. As a result, the songs on the LP are filled with personal and emotionally open lyrics that deal with grief, sense of guilt, and other related sentiments. Check out “New Halloween,” “Flowers and You,” “Rapture,” “Displacement,” and “Benediction.” This is the limited-edition, indie-exclusive white vinyl version of the album.
