First things first: it's been a fantastic year for the hardcore scene - or The Wave as referred to by fans.
Pianos Become The Teeth's upcoming The Lack Long After will be compared to Wildlife for many reasons - the overwhelming emotion, hard-to-stomach content, heartbreak, genre, etc. After first listen, it was hard to take in this one. Kyle Durfey sings/screams with so much emotion it's too much at times, even uncomfortable - in the best way possible, though. The lyrical content on this record is truly heartbreaking, as the tragedy of Durfey's father's death haunts every moment of the record.
This is the album that will change the game for PBTT completely. Fulfilling their place in The Wave this year, the guys have outdone themselves with The Lack Long After. What results is what may be the most intense, tragically emotional record of the year. It will leave you shaking after first listen.
November 1st isn't too far away, and I'm fully confident that fans will be absolutely floored with The Lack Long After. If you love records like Wildlife, Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me, and Empty Days & Sleepless Nights so far this year, get ready.
