Self Defense Family and Touché Amoré stream collaborative EP

Deathwish, Inc. label mates Self Defense Family and Touché Amoré have released a stream of their collaborative two-song experiment at Vice. The record, titled Self Love, is not a split, but instead a large group effort in which 15 musicians collectively wrote as one unit. Engineer Will Yip recorded the EP at Studio 4. The Self Love 7″ is due for release March 10. Stream “Circa 95” below.

Touché Amoré most recently released the second volume of Live on BBC Radio, which followed their third LP, 2013’s Is Survived By. Self Defense Family released their fourth album (and first under the name Self Defense Family) Try Me last year.

Self Defense Family will release an additional EP on March 10, a split with Creative Adult. That record will be a joint release between Deathwish, Inc. and Run For Cover Records. Self Defense Family will also tour starting March 4 in Brooklyn, with initial support from Creative Adult. See a list of dates below.
