Hesitation Wounds – “Teeth”

Jeremy Bolm leads the great Burbank, California post-hardcore band Touché Amoré. But Touché Amoré haven’t dropped an album since 2013’s Is Survived By (though they did drop a split with Self Defense Family last year), and now Bolm is getting ready to release an album with a new band. Bolm also sings for Hesitation Wounds, a band that also features members of the Hope Conspiracy, Trap Them, and, um, Slipknot. (It’s drummer Jay Weinberg, who used to be in Against Me! and who’s the son of Bruce Springsteen/Conan O’Brien drummer Max Weinberg.) This spring, they’ll release an album called Awake For Everything. And “Teeth,” the first song we’ve heard from it, is a straight-up minute-and-a-half hardcore gut-ripper. It’s like a Touché Amoré song with all the quiet parts forcibly removed, and it’s awesome. Listen to it below, via Brooklyn Vegan.

Awake For Everything is out 5/27 on 6131 Records.
