FINCH return with their first full-length release in over nine years with Back To Oblivion, released October 3, 2014 through Spinefarm, Caroline Australia.
From their press release:
The Southern California band has undeniably created a lasting, formidable body of work with their two studio albums and EPs – singer Nate Barcalow acknowledges that 2002’s ‘What It Is To Burn’ all but “defined post-hardcore early in the decade”, while 2005’s ‘Say Hello To Sunshine’ continued to shape its direction.
The band dignified the demand for a celebration of ‘What It Is To Burn’s’ 10th anniversary by reforming after a hiatus and playing select sold-out shows across the country in 2013. Inspired by the creative surge brought on by these shows, FINCH rendered these contradictions moot with ‘Back To Oblivion’, their long-awaited third LP and a new, bold chapter in the band’s legacy. ‘Back To Oblivion’ itself is a paradoxical idea.
This is FINCH reinvigorated, brimming with the inspiration of their earliest days; the opposite of the negation implied by “oblivion”. But as a songwriting unit, they’re challenging themselves by going deep into the unknown – this is by far FINCH’s most introspective and demanding work from a lyrical standpoint. The album was produced by Brian Virtue (Deftones, 30 Seconds To Mars, Jane’s Addiction, Audioslave). This year FINCH returned to the Warped Tour as a respected veteran; this was once a scene where they had been the newcomer with something to prove.
