L.A post-hardcore band Touché Amoré will release their fifth studio album, Lament, on October 9 and have released the single “I’ll Be Your Host” through Epitaph Records.
The song explores the complexities and mounting uneasiness that comes from people looking to vocalist Jeremy Bolm to find catharsis in their own loss while he is still processing and dealing with his grief.
“’I’ll Be Your Host’ is a song about the overwhelming nervousness I get when someone approaches me and talks to me about their dead loved ones,” explains Bolm. “I feel horrible because I 100% understand why they’re sharing it with me. It’s hard having to stomach tragic story after tragic story while sometimes being asked advice when I absolutely don’t have the answers.”
