Another day; another shedload of FREE MUSIC for you to download. Today it’s the turn of Deathwish, Inc., the label co-founded by Converge’s Jacob Bannon, as they’ve just released a free “Summer 2012” label sampler. When you take a look at the tracklisting – featuring the likes of Narrows, Oathbreaker, Heiress, Whips/Chains, Rise And Fall, Give Up The Ghost (aka American Nightmare), Single Mothers, Self Defense Family, Cursed, Touché Amoré, and Deafheaven – you can see that this is no piddly compilation of also-rans and lightweights.
Interview: Jeremy Bolm of Touché Amoré on oversharing, Leonard Cohen, and whether Ryan Gosling really was at that American Nightmare show or not.
March 15th, 2012
When Touché Amoré tore up London at the end of last month, Alex Andrews caught up with Jeremy Bolm to talk about the anxiety that comes with playing bigger venues and supporting a reformed American Nightmare.
Jeremy Bolm sits perched on a sofa, devouring what’s left of a sauce-covered chicken leg. Having only been introduced to Nando’s the day before by the boys in Basement, the Touché Amoré frontman appears as fascinated with the restaurant as the flocks of professional footballers and celebrities who ironically dine there.
Shovelling chips into his mouth, Bolm talks excitedly about opening up a franchise in Los Angeles. Softly-spoken and remarkably friendly, it takes a moment to get your head ahead around the fact that this is the same man who pens such intensely tortured verses and will later perform front flips off the cramped stage of the Camden Barfly.
