LIVE REVIEW – La Dispute & Touche Amore @ Scala, London (21-08-14)


Considering their reputation as the heroes of The New Wave of Post-Hardcore, it is very fortunate for fans that La Dispute and Touche Amore seem to be the best of friends rather than bitter rivals. Having in 2010 released 7” split EP Searching for a Pulse/The Worth of the World - which was co-written by all members of both bands and features vocal cross-overs from respective leads Jordan Dreyer and Jeremy Bolm, La Dispute and Touche Amore toured Europe together in the summer of 2011.
