TASDF “Self Love” is a collaborative release between Touche Amore and Self Defense Family members. “Self Love” was created by 15 musicians working together as one band, all eventually captured by engineer Will Yip (Blacklisted, Title Fight) at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA.
Since their inception, Touche Amore have toured relentlessly, playing their brand of emotional hardcore/punk everywhere from dingy basements to sprawling arenas. While traveling in the UK in 2013, they were invited to record at the legendary BBC Studios for "The Punk Show" with host Mike Davies for a second time (the band released their "Live on BBC Radio 1 Vol .1 in 2012 on Deathwish). Again, Touche Amore worked with acclaimed engineer Simon Askew (Pulp, PJ Harvey, Foo Fighters) and assistant Phil Deacon during a half day of recording. Touche Amore “Live on BBC Radio 1” Vol. 2 offers heartfelt renditions of recent “Is Survived By” anthems “Just Exist”, “Harbor”, and “Non Fiction”, as well as “Gravity, Metaphorically”, originally on their split w/ Pianos Become The Teeth.
