Twitching Tongues Announces Tour With Hatebreed, Crowbar, The Acacia Strain

4:42 PM


US Headlining Shows Confirmed

Southern California-based metal/hardcore outfit TWITCHING TONGUES will take to the streets again this March on tour with Hatebreed, Crowbar and The Acacia Strain.

The trek -- set to run from March 16 through March 29 – comes in advance of a short US headlining tour from March 30 to April 8. See all confirmed dates below.

TWITCHING TONGUES will be touring in support of their forthcoming new full-length "Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred," set for release March 9 via Metal Blade Records. 

The title for TWITCHING TONGUES' fourth full-length is drawn from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer - "Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life." 

"Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred" reflects the band's mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors. 

With "failure" as a core theme driving Colin Young's lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate. 

Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. 

While still maintaining the same levels of aggression that have traditionally characterized previous offerings, "Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred" features more immediate and memorable melodies that evoke the sound of 2013's "In Love There Is No Law."

For a first preview of "Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred," sample the band's latest video for "Harakiri" (directed by David Brodsky) at metalblade.com/twitchingtongues where the record is available for preorder.
