Topshelf Records hardcore/screamo outfit Pianos Become The Teeth (Baltimore, MD) will be entering Developing Nations Studio on August 1st to record their follow up record to Old Pride with engineer Kevin Bernsten. The band is currently in the pre production stages and are planning for a fall 2011 release. Topshelf Records released Pianos Become The Teeths’ critically acclaimed Old Pride in 2010 and re-released the bands split EP with The Saddest Landscape earlier this year.
The band has described the new album as “a progression from Old Pride, it’s a personal album for all of us in many different ways” and the lyrics as “emotional, reminiscent, cohesive, sad, bitter, and heavy hearted.” Having toured the United States twice, gone to Europe, and had appearances at Fest 9 and Krazy Fest in support of Old Pride, Pianos has promised more touring including another European, Full US, and an appearance at Fest 10 in support of the new album.
Pianos Become The Teeth has a melodic yet uncompromising sound that brings to mind such diverse and influential bands as Thursday, Envy and City of Caterpillar. Brimming with sincerity and brandishing an experimental ambiance, the band is pushing beyond the boundaries of a once stale genre. Mixing elements of screamo, hardcore as well as post rock, Old Pride has given a breath of new life into a once decaying scene.
