TWITCHING TONGUES will be touring in support of their latest full-length Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, recently issued via Metal Blade Records. A title derived from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer – “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life” – Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred reflects the band’s mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors. With “failure” as a core theme driving Colin Young’s lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate. Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. While still maintaining the same levels of aggression that have traditionally characterized previous offerings, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred features more immediate and memorable melodies that evoke the sound of 2013’s In Love There Is No Law.

“…there isn’t a weak moment on here. The mish-mash of styles and emotions poured into this really sets it apart in the fiercely experimental new wave of hardcore…What TWITCHING TONGUES have really achieved here is adding a wholly new flavor to the burgeoning scene it finds itself in. It would be a great shame to see a release like this go unrecognized.” — Distorted Sound
“Passionately unorthodox hardcore with some twists and turns…” — Metal Trenches
“The amount of styles they pack into their music is crazy, yet the album still has a very cohesive feel.” — The Chimera
“…undeniably praise-worthy… While TWITCHING TONGUES still flaunt their growing pains, the fearless fury that resonates throughout Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred is quite commendable.” — Exclaim
