I don't subscribe to an awful lot of social media. Twitter is useless to me honestly and Instagram is pointless. I know at some point that Facebook will be the latest Myspace and/or Livejournal, but for now, it'll do just fine. It was doing especially fine as I was going through the feed about a year and a half back and I saw that Finch was reuniting for a few shows to celebrate the 10th anniversarry of their album "What It Is To Burn", an album that I listened to until it almost exploded when it was orignally released, and continue to listen to extensively. After one show tunred in to ten, ten to twenty, and a U.S. tour to a European tour, at some point they decided to write and record a new album. After breaking up in 2010, new Finch music would be heard.
"Back to Oblivion" is the name of the new album to be released on the 30th through Razor and Tie Records. However they decided to give us a taste by streaming "Anywhere But Here". After listening once, twice and a third time my excitement grew and grew to proportions that made me want to freeze myself until the 30th when I could get my hands on it and get it's glory in my ear holes. "However I saw that SouthPark episode and it doesn't work that way apparently)
"The theme of a desperate need for release is one that is very strong throughout the new record" said singer Nate Barclow. "Anywhere But Here" has the Post-Hardcore undertones that Finch was famous for, but has a bit of maturity and growth in it as well. It excites me to hear what the rest of the album has in store for me both as a journalist and as a fan of the band. Keep your eyes on the lookout for this one, I think we will be in for one hell of a record.
