Baltimore post-hardcore band, Pianos Become the Teeth, have announced their Southeast Asian dates for 2019. This will be their first time in this region and we are proud to be given the opportunity to host them in Singapore at SLED Productions x Decline on 28 February 2019 as part of their "**Wait For Love**" tour in 2019.
Their new album, "Wait For Love," was just released in February on Epitaph Records, and has earned them high praise from critics and fans:
"*The intensely serious post-hardcore band marks the turn from death and loss to life and love with nimble musicianship, inventive rhythms, and Kyle Durfey’s most accomplished singing yet*," Pitchfork wrote, in a glowing 7.7 review of the record.
"*Wait for Love shows that Pianos Become the Teeth have a firm grip on a sound and identity that's beautiful, poignant and wholly their own, and it shows that they can keep maturing without having to constantly recreate themselves*." - Exclaim
Formed more than a decade ago as a post-hardcore/screamo band, Pianos Become The Teeth quickly amassed a loyal fanbase in Baltimore, routinely selling out clubs like The Ottobar. Then, in 2014, their career and music took an unexpected twist -- Pianos signed with the renown label Epitaph Records and released "Keep You," a softer, more foreboding album. There were moments of fury and moments of calm, with Kyle Durfey singing, not shouting, intensely personal lyrics. Critics and fans praised the band's new direction, and four years later, Pianos has continued to grow into this new sound.
Produced and engineered by Will Yip, "Wait For Love" shows the band reconciling their aggressive past with the atmospheric turns of "Keep You". The album eschews stylistic traps in order to focus on songwriting and feels like a full-realisation of what the band have hinted at in the past.
