For the “Singles” Collection cover + tracklisting….
It’s been a while since Ampere put out some new music, and if you know anything about anything, you should know that Ampere doesn’t mess around when it comes to their trade. 2004’s All Our Tomorrows End Today is considered by many to be a classic of the screamo genre, and the band as a whole is comprised of long-time veterans of the genre, especially guitarist Will Killingsworth of Orchid fame. Like Shadows is the new LP from this Amherst powerhouse, and it picks up right where their previous outing left off: intense, calculated, passionate and technical hardcore.
No Idea Records have begun the pre-order for AMPERE’s new album, Like Shadows.Those who preorder will not only get the album in a limited pre-order only color, which includes a download code of the entire album, but they will also receive a bonus LP of thirty rare songs entitled The First Five Years with a limited hand screened cover. Forty five songs on 2xLPs.
In case you’re the kind of person who likes to try all of the ice cream flavors before you buy, you can head over to the A.V.Club’s Loud Column, and give the entire album a taste.
