Touche Amore to release Live On BBC Radio 1 EP, first song from EP streaming
While performing in the UK in 2011,were invited to record at the BBC studios for The Punk Show. The band accepted and worked with with Simon Askew (Pulp, PJ Harvey, Foo Fighters) during a half day of recording. The band performed four of their most popular songs in a stripped down, road worn state, for the EP.
Vocalist Jeremy Bolm spoke to Noisecreep about the EP:
Jeremy, tell us about the new EP.
Well it’s called Live on BBC Radio 1 and it’s coming out on Deathwish Records. We did a UK tour with La Dispute and recorded the session with them, which was cool, because I don’t think the BBC has ever had two bands come in like that and do back-to-back sessions. What made it really cool is us and La Dispute have a split 7 inch record out there where we sing on each other’s songs. And since we were there that day we recorded one of those split songs and that will appear on the new live EP. Jordan from their band sings on it with me.
The sound on the new EP must be great, coming from those studios.
It really is. The overall production is just amazing. This is the BBC so they did a really good, quality job on it.
It must have been an honor to record there.
Very much so. It’s so storied there, where The Smiths and Joy Division and the Beatles – think about that. So I mean, we felt out of our element in one sense, but still got caught up in all the excitement.
‘Home Away From Here,’ the first song to be released from their ‘’ EP can be heard below alongside the trailer.
