UK label Holy Roar has announced the signing of melodic hardcore band DEPARTURES! See the details below. The band will be playing Holy Roar’s 10th birthday show @ The Dome/Boston Music Rooms in London on 21st May – tickets are going fast so pick one up in advance!
We are very happy to announce that we will be releasing Departures forthcoming third album ‘Death Touches Us, From The Moment We Begin To Love’ this summer. Having been fans of the band for some time, when the opportunity arose to work with the band we jumped at it. At this point the band might be considered almost stalwarts of the UK hardcore scene, something that hasn’t gone unnoticed by the world: the band have successfully toured Japan (as well as all the usual territories), been handpicked to support Modern Life Is War and American Nightmare, as well as shows and tours along the way with Your Demise, Moose Blood, More Than Life, Funeral For A Friend, Shai Hulud, Stick To Your Guns, Balance & Composure, Seahaven, Pianos Become The Teeth and many more.
This new record streamlines, crystallizes and solidifies Departures’ already achingly melodic post-hardcore sound into something truly formidable. Existing fans of the band will not be disappointed, whilst new ears will be treated to a record that blurs the line between high-energy alternative/indie and emotional post-hardcore.
Tracklisting, artwork and more new music will be revealed soon.
The band added:
DEATH TOUCHES US, FROM THE MOMENT WE BEGIN TO LOVE – coming soon on Holy Roar Records – We are so proud of this record, and we can’t wait to share more of it with you. Release date, artwork and track listing will be announced over the next few weeks. Love always. Departures.
