Bay Area wrecking crew Tørsö are among the best-loved bands on the DIY hardcore circuit right now. They play with a feverish, otherworldly urgency, bringing all the fire of classic D-beat to their anthemic face-rippers. Lately, they’ve been quiet; they haven’t released anything since their molten 2015 full-length debut Sono Pronta A Morire. But early next year, they’re coming back with the new 7″ EP Build And Break on the hardcore institution Revelation Records. Deafheaven collaborator Jack Shirley recorded the four-song EP live-to-tape, and “Grab A Shovel,” the first song that they’ve shared, is a headlong two-minute destroyer that’s all about the paralyzing power of self-loathing. Listen below.
The Build And Break EP is out 1/11 on Revelation; pre-order it here.
