Touché Amoré have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Stage Four, over at Stereogum. Titled “Displacement”, the new track barrels out of the gate with stampeding, emotive instrumentation and vocalist Jeremy Bolm’s heart-wrenching lyrics that detail the singer trying to come to terms with the passing of his mother. Bolm elaborates on the track:
“The word ‘Displacement’ in Greek is Metastasis, which is the term used when cancer has spread from one organ to another. Having “dis” in the title felt like a good head nod to Discharge, Disfear, Disclose, etc. as this song has a strong D-beat presence,”… “Most of my lyrics are autobiographical, but this one feels more like stating facts than word play. It touches on my faith or lack thereof in the afterlife. How for her sake I want to believe in heaven because it’s what she deserves.”
Listen to the track now.
Stage Four will be released on September 16 via Epitaph Records.
