Following the announcement of their upcoming tour with East Bay Hardcore group AFI, Touché Amoré have released their first single “Just Exist” through Pitchfork. The song comes off their upcoming third full length Is Survived By, which is due out September 24th through Deathwish Inc. “Just Exist” is the opening track to Is Survived By and, like all other Touché Amoré songs, is extremely honest and heartfelt. If “Just Exist” is any indicator as to how Is Survived By will sound then let’s just say September 24th can’t get here soon enough. You can pre-order Is Survived By on iTunes which gets you an instant download of “Just Exist”. Physical pre-orders will be announced soon through Deathwish Inc. Read past the break to hear “Just Exist”. Enjoy! READ MORE
