Taken from L.A. based post hardcore band Touché Amoré’s recent Stage Four album, Rapture is the latest (the fourth, to be exact) single to be taken from the record. Whereas in the past the band trod firmly down the in your face, brittle post-hardcore path, Stage Four saw them move to a more melodic edge, despite the demons suffered by lead singer Jeremy Bolm, including the death of his mother in 2014, which enveloped his thoughts and lyrics when writing the record.
Rapture is the band at their most melodic, but they don’t completely rip up their DNA, and the track has bullying drums and some brutal and intricate guitar work. “With this record being so heavy, content-wise, I also think it’s our catchiest,” says Bolm of the album. “I never sang before, so I took a chance with that. I’m so thankful that everybody involved has been so supportive and delicate with the subject matter.”
