Los Angeles post hardcore band Touché Amoré announce new UK headline shows ahead of their appearance at 2000 Trees in July. Support on these dates comes from Brighton's Gender Roles:

- July 13 - Cave Stage, Cheltenham, UK @ 2000 Trees
Formed in Burbank, California, across 2007 and 2008, the band’s urgent sound, with its melodic sonic assault and impassioned vocals, has grown tighter and more refined through a trio of full-length albums and a series of EP’s and releases. Since those early days, 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. And with 2016's Stage Four, their fourth and biggest album to date, they cemented their status as one of rock music’s most talented, relatable, and visceral acts.
“I don’t open up to people too much in regular life, but when I’m writing songs, I want to be as open and as honest as possible,” Bolm confesses. Touché albums have always served as an emotional outlet for Bolm. So when the time came to write Stage Four there was no question that it would be about passing of Bolm’s mother in late 2014. Stage Four was recorded in early 2016 in Studio City, CA with producer Brad Wood. Cathartic in delivery, highly sentimental, and sonically triumphant, Stage Four is an emblem of a band both living its dream and marred by loss. And with Stage Four, Touché Amoré unmistakably made the biggest, boldest, and most artistic statement of their career.
