Stream: Hesitation Wounds – “A. Smith (The Death Of A Teenager)”

Hesitation Wounds
Jeremy Bolm of Touché Amoré has started a new band with Jay Weinberg (ex-Against Me!), Neeraj Kane (The Hope Conspiracy), and Stephen Lacour (ex-Trap Them) called Hesitation Wounds. The band is set to release a self-titled 7-inch on Secret Voice Records, and is streaming a new song called A. Smith (The Death Of A Teenager). Check out the stream here or below! Preorders of the digital EP and 7″ are available on Secret Voice’s website.

Bolm released this statement regarding the background and formation of Hesitation Wounds:

“Hesitation Wounds is the combined sound of different backgrounds and 5 hours of song writing. In May of 2012, the idea was to combine friends (some of whom had never met) from different bands and see what could happen in one afternoon. Jeremy Bolm, vocalist of Hesitation Wounds (and Touché Amoré), commented, “I told Neeraj Kane (The Hope Conspiracy, Suicide File, Holy Fever), Jay Weinberg (ex-Against Me!), and Stephen ‘Scuba’ LaCour (Ex-Trap Them, True Cross), ‘Let’s write as many songs as we can on Sunday and record them on Monday.’ Jay was in town and Scuba agreed to come out from Arizona for the weekend. What we came up with was three songs and an intro. We recorded them Monday afternoon with long time friend and always-available-for-my-stupid-shit, Alex Estrada. Lyrically, the songs are about witnessing the murder of a friend, the life and death of the inspirational underdog folk singer Phil Ochs, and the overall reality of life. Sonically, it’s an abrasive / no strings attached outpouring of fast and heavy hardcore not far off from the bands we’re already responsible for. We’re proud of the outcome and we hope you enjoy.”
