On Wednesday, Los Angeles based Post-Hardcore band Touche Amore unleashed the ultimate smile inducing, tear jerker of a music video for their new single, “Reminders,” from their upcoming fifth studio record, Lament.
The video is simple yet effective, a montage of micro clips of friends made along the band’s journey enjoying moments with their pets. Touche states at the beginning that they asked everyone featured what serves as a reminder of love in their lives. The seemingly endless cast of scene fixtures great and small, includes names like Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World), Pierce Jordan (Soul Glo), Jason Butler (letlive), Julien Baker, Anthony Green (Circa Survive), Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins (Tigers Jaw), Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), Barry Johnson (Joyce Manor), Tom May (The Menzingers), Emma Ruth Rundle, Chris Conley (Saves The Day), and Bad Copy’s own, Ty Dykema (me!!!) among countless others. It is dedicated to all the pets lost along the way and is meant to brighten the social media timelines of all it crosses. Remember that you are loved, even in these trying times.
Pre-order the new album, Lament, via Epitaph Records. It is due out on October 9th.
