Departures (post-hardcore) to join Holy Roar ahead of third record release

Holy Roar records have announced that Scottish screamo band Departures will release their third album via the label this summer.

In a press release they issued the following statement regarding the new record, “Death Touches Us, From the Minute We Begin to Love”:

“(It) streamlines, crystallizes and solidifies Departures’ already achingly melodic post-hardcore sound into something truly formidable. Existing fans of the band will not be disappointed, whilst new ears will be treated to a record that blurs the line between high-energy alternative/indie and emotional post-hardcore.”

If you haven’t heard Departures before they are well worth a listen if you are into angst ridden screamo in a similar ilk to Your Demise and Giants.
