Went and saw La Dispute and Touché Amore last night and went out got drunk after with my friends thinking that today was my short day, which it was supposed to be so that’s why I made all those decisions but someone called out so I actually had to stay until 3 boy howdy am I tired I was running on like 3 hours of sleep all day.

La Dispute, Touché Amoré and Empath reached the halfway point in their current US run with a stop in Orlando this past Saturday. For fans, this is a special tour that is not to be missed.
La Dispute is touring in support of their fourth album, Panorama, which was released in March. I hadn’t seen them play since Fest in 2012, but I was quickly reminded this band brings emotion to the stage like no other. This show was everything I could’ve hoped for as a reunion, culminating in hearing my favorite track of theirs, “The Last Lost Continent.”
As a special surprise for Orlando, they ended their set with fan-favorite, “King Park,” which had not yet been
played on this tour.
This was my first time seeing Touché Amoré, which was long overdue. This year was all about the 10th anniversary of their first studio album, …To The Beat of A Dead Horse, which they’ve been playing in its entirety to start their set. The band will be working on new music in 2020, so stay tuned.
If simply seeing the two close-knit bands grace the same stage isn’t enough, they’re also playing their 2010 split EP, Searching For A Pulse/The Worth of The World.
The icing on this tour’s cake are Philadelphia’s up and coming noise punks, Empath. The band has put out a steady stream of music since their formation in 2015, but just released their first full length album, Active Listening: Night on Earth, back in May.
The best shot I got from tonight.
They ended with The Last Lost Continent before the encore. How fitting.
Hey I saw Touche Amoré for the first time and honestly? What a fucking experience
My phone is garbage but it does what it can
Happy holidays from TA

I hate when I’m trying to look up a band on Tumblr and I can barely find anything relevant because everybody floods the tags with bands that are not the band they are posting. Shit is weak.
It’s really tough for me to gauge this album. I really like the mix, especially on the guitars. I think it’s that I’m so emotionally attached to the original recordings that when I hear the new versions it just sounds wrong. Either way the album cover kicks ass.
EMO SHIT FOR THE SOUL
well, as the band Touche Amore once said “I did this to myself. I hammered my own nails.”
