Takers Leavers // Break & Bloom
Written by Nick Zimmer
Southern California’s Takers Leavers have returned with their second release, Break & Bloom, which will be out everywhere tomorrow! The EP, which is a follow up to 2016’s Filthy Animals, features six tracks full of soaring choruses, well placed screams (the fastest track on the album "M.O.A.B." stands out here,) and tasteful breakdowns that will remind you more of early Saosin and Thrice than a beatdown band.
The lead single off of Break & Bloom, "Fist To Wall," is a track that focuses on learning how to let go and dealing with the repercussions of your actions while dealing with loss. The band put out a killer video for the track which you can check out here.
The album closer “Bloom” features a short instrumental interlude that leads into the soaring final minute of the record and leaves you wanting more. Takers Leavers stand out as a band that can take the post hardcore world by storm. The band have a handful of shows currently lined up, and we recommend checking them out if they’re hitting your town!
