LA post-hardcore mainstays Touché Amoré are premiering their new tour documentary Moments In Passing exclusively with Metal Hammer.
Produced by Niels Bourgonje, it was filmed on the band’s recent tour of mainland Europe, taking in shows across Germany, France, Poland and Austria.
The 10-minute documentary follows the band on the road in support of their latest album Stage Four. Despite frontman Jeremy Bolm losing his voice just days into the tour, it didn’t stop the band from laying waste to some of the biggest crowds they’ve ever played to in Europe.
Stage Four came as an emotional response to Jeremy losing his mother to cancer in 2014, and is a devastatingly powerful record, which led to many fans opening up to Bolm after shows about how the music affected them. “The levels that people express themselves are hard to deal with,” he reveals. While guitarist Nick Steinhardt contemplates the idea of having such a good time onstage to the music, “It’s funny to use the word fun with a subject that’s dark and serious.”
Stage Four is out now, via Epitaph Records.
