416 PAGE BOOK STRIKINGLY DISPLAYS 12 YEARS OF BAND’S ART

Los Angeles post hardcore band, Touché Amoré continues to push the boundaries of music and creativity. Today, the band announced a massive and beautiful book of their art. THE ART OF TOUCHÉ AMORÉ is a 416-page softcover behemoth that features virtually every bit of art over the band’s now 12-year career, primarily from the hands of band’s guitarist and resident art director/designer Nick Steinhardt.

The book includes artwork from their highly collectible sold-out deluxe album releases alongside the lyrics that inspired. An additional archive section features an expansive catalog of tactile seven-inch releases, tour posters, and merchandise from their beginnings in 2007 to their most recent release, Lament (2020).

Noted indie music writer and longtime Touché Amoré analyst, Ian Cohen wrote the narration for the book and interviewed creative collaborators Ryan Aylsworth (photographer), Anthony Gerace (collage artist), and George Clarke (photographer), while vocalist Jeremy Bolm penned the Introduction, and Steinhardt helmed the foreword.

In addition to being in the band, Steinhardt has developed an impressive career as a visual artist and creative director. Steinhardt not only creates all the band’s related art, but he has also worked on albums and campaigns for artists including Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, P!nk, Katy Perry. Deafheaven, and more.

“Given the number of years we’ve been at this and the limited availability of our most expansive releases, we realized that even some of our most enthusiastic fans either weren’t aware of or haven’t had the chance to see the full vision of our album packages,”says Steinhardt. “There is a larger story to tell than just a singular album cover: the intertwining of our music, lyrics and art, inspiration and anecdotes on the creative process, in one thorough volume. I wanted to approach this from the perspective of a completist fan, curious nascent artist, die-hard music lover, print packaging nerd, or all of the above.”

THE ART OF TOUCHÉ AMORÉ will be released on January 26, pre-order is available now via www.toucheamore.com. Orders before December 3 will receive a signed card from the band.

Recently, the band announced a North American tour in support of their much-heralded fifth studio album Lament. Vein.fm will support the full spring 2022 run with Thirdface (March 4-15) and Foxtails (March 16-Apr 12) splitting opener duties. Tickets are on sale now.

ABOUT TOUCHÉ AMORÉ
Formed in Burbank, California, across 2007 and 2008, the band’s urgent sound has grown tighter and more refined through four full-length albums, a series of EPs, and various single releases. Lead singer Jeremy Bolm, guitarists Nick Steinhardt and Clayton Stevens, bassist Tyler Kirby, and drummer Elliot Babin have created a trajectory for themselves through hard work and dedication.

Over the years the band rose to prominence with 2009’s …To the Beat of a Dead Horse, 2011’s Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me, and crossed into new territory with the 2013 art-punk masterpiece Is Survived By. In late 2016 Touché Amoré released their fourth studio album, Stage Four. The album graced many critics’ lists including A.V. Club’s “20 Best Albums of 2016” list, Stereogum’s “50 Best Albums Of 2016” list, and one of the 20 best emo/punk albums of 2016 by Brooklyn Vegan. In celebration of playing their 1000th show in their hometown of Los Angeles to celebrate their 10-year anniversary as a band in 2018, the band released their live album 10 Years / 1000 Shows at The Regent Theater.

And now with, Lament, their triumphant fifth record, Touché Amoré looks back at its past and uses hard-won optimism to point its fans toward hope, and love.
