Touché Amoré have released a statement regarding the controversy of the "Good Riddance/Fred Phelps" t-shirt.
Here we are years later, and the man has died. We got messages saying we should reprint the design, so we thought "we'll do an updated version and have the proceeds go to benefit what the man lived the last years of his life trying to dismantle.” We feel there is beautiful irony in selling an image of a bigot and using the profit towards achieving equality for exactly what they hated. Which is why all net profit (money earned after cost/printing) will be going to http://www.hrc.com

Touché Amore will be releasing "Good Riddance" shirts in light of news that Fred Phelps has died.

Update: The shirt is now available. A percentage of proceeds will go to the Human Rights Campaign.

This year at SXSW, I'm providing daily recaps of the festival. Here's the recap from a small part of Tuesday but mainly Wednesday. Make sure to come back every day to read recaps of the rest of the days. Make sure to follow me at @RyanGardnerC on Twitter or Instagram for random thoughts and reviews during the day before I recap them. Today I’m planning to spend the afternoon alternating between the Topshelf Showcase and Equal Vision/Pure Noise showcase. I’m hopefully seeing The 1975 at the MTV Woodies tonight.

Read our write-up of the October 18th Austin stop of the AFI tour with Touché Amoré.
Looking back on AFI’s now 9 albums and I believe 10 EPs, it’s no wonder they have such a legacy. The new Burials is a solid album, proving they haven’t lost any part of their touch along the way. Not only have they experimented with their sound throughout each record, they have managed to keep quite a strong core fan base over the course of 20 years. That alone is something to be said, and this sold out show proved just that.

PureVolume recently inteviewed Touché Amoré's Jeremy Bolm about the band's new album, how he deal with critics, and why he's still so passionate about underground music and the culture surrounding it.
It blows my mind that the generation gap isn't even that big, but a kid will come in to buy a Code Orange Kids record and I'll be like, "Oh, Deathwish has reissued the first Cursed record," and they'll have no idea what that is. I won't let them buy the Code Orange Kids record if they don't get the Cursed record first because I think it's important for them to know where the bands they like now come from. The fact that a lot of kids hadn't heard Modern Life Is War blows my mind because if...

This is the kind of news I hate posting about. Some asshole in Detroit tonight decided to break into Touché Amoré's van and steal all the band member's personal belongings and cash. If we hear of any way for you to donate money or help to the band, we'll let you know. You can always pick up the band's upcoming new record and merch. In the meantime, whomever broke into the band's van is honestly a piece of shit and lower than scum.

Last week, an article on OC Weekly featured a quote from Touche Amore frontman Jeremy Bolm where he said his band would never play the Warped Tour. In the ensuing slew of opinions on the Internet responding to the quote, AltPress editor Scott Heisel commented that if you'd asked Touche Amore three years ago whether they'd open for AFI in 1,500-cap rooms, they probably would have said no. Bolm responded to this with a hell of a statement, a fraction of which is below. The rest is in the replies.
There is a world of difference playing alongside a band like AFI and a band like Atilla. My problem is playing alongside bands EVERY DAY that represent things that make my skin crawl.

Hear a new Touché Amoré song entitled "Just Exist" on Pitchfork - this is the first track from their upcoming full-length, Is Survived By, due September 24 from Deathwish. If you pre-order the album on iTunes, you get this track instantly. Other pre-orders are coming soon.
