“Deflector” – TOUCHÉ AMORÉ premiere new song!

1 min read

LA post hardcore act TOUCHÉ AMORÉ have teamed up with producer Ross Robinson for a new song called “Deflector”. Engineered and mixed by Mike Balboa, recorded at The Bunker Studio, and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music, the track can be heard above.

It’s been three years since the release of Stage Four. It’s been a growing and healing experience since its release. Time has also flown in a way we didn’t expect. We’ve spent the better part of that time touring and writing on and off. Earlier this year we buckled down and started writing with purpose. With that came this song DEFLECTOR. We’d recorded our last two albums with Brad Wood who came to feel like a sixth member of the band in the best way possible. This time around, we need to take a chance with the unfamiliar. Someone who would take us out of our comfort zone. Enter RossRobinson. A man who knows no comfort zone. I followed his career all through my youth to being a young adult. From Korn to The Cure, having produced many life-changing albums throughout those years (Sepultura, GlassJaw, At The Drive-In, etc). When we returned from the Midwest tour we entered the studio to record a song with Ross and see if there was chemistry. That chemistry was caught on tape and will be here for you to listen to tomorrow. Look out for DEFLECTOR.

TOUCHE AMORE by Christoph Eisenmenger
TOUCHE AMORE by Christoph Eisenmenger


I’m a colorless banner
flown at half mast
I’m a vessel for
last contact
I’m a secondhand piano
incapable of tune
providing the score
for “gone too soon”

I’ll test the water
I won’t dive right in
That’s too personal
I’m too delicate

I’ll test the water
I won’t dive right in
I’m not comfortable
I rarely am

Been a sideline voyeur, a conscientious deflector
Been an underpin for something better
Been faulty poet, a personal arsonist
a last responder to my own self interest

cold-shouldered by design
sleeping in on borrowed time
Lets sing, just one more
I’m a trapeze act missing contact
A long way down to the floor

Been a broken record, a conscientious deflector
Been a sounding board for an absent savior
Been a faulty poet, an ambivalent nihilist
A last responder to my own self interest
