Toronto based six-piece Respire are back with their fiercely earnest, aggressive but orchestral new album Black Line, out on the 4th of December 2020 through Church Road Records.
Respire stands firm as one of the most forceful in the realm of new screamo and post-hardcore bands, pushing what it means to encourage diversity and representation within the roots of art.
Today sees the release of a new single and video for their new single ‘Cicatrice’
“Cicatrice is the sound of societal upheaval; a celebration of destruction and its subsequent annihilation of the darkest elements of our society,” say the band. “It’s the ripping open of the scars we’ve inflicted on ourselves and our world. It is our swan song.”
Watch the video below:
Since their formation in 2013, Respire have been an unwavering light in the Toronto DIY scene. With their already accomplished history and an extended family of contributing musicians in tow, the band have forged their spirituous third album Black Line.
Written over two years and produced over six months, the record promises to be a masterful exercise in sonic scope and overwhelming swells of fervour.
