Finch releases “Back To Oblivion”

Finch - Back To Oblivion
Finch – Back To Oblivion

Unusually catchy with a mild punch, Finch’s newest album, Back to Oblivion, seems to pull influences from rock bands of the ‘80s and ‘90s to pull a classic sound over their songs. Finch delivers an album that gets you slowly rocking your head to the slow ballads (their tracks “Play Dead” and “New Wave” come to mind). But this album isn’t just a one trick pony. “Further From The Few”, the third track off the album, brings a more familiar Finch sound with more punk elements and some vocal power that balances on the verge of some full-throat screams.

Finch has had an interesting history, including one hiatus from 2006 to 2007, an aborted third album, and the official break up, which was announced in October of 2010. However, the looming 10th anniversary of their highest praised album What It Is To Burn inspired the band to consider a temporary reformation for a celebration tour. Guitarist Alex Linares favored the tour under the conditions that the band played shows in California and London, which led to additions of more tour dates and eventually spread into a few North American tours with bands The Almost and Dance Gavin Dance. Their reunion show in California was recorded and released as a live CD/DVD through label Tragic Hero Records

During the final shows of the tour, Finch began playing a new song entitled “Back To Oblivion”, which wasn’t intended to turn into a full studio album due to the uncertainty of the band’s future. When Finch decided to join Vans Warped Tour in 2014, the song received positive feedback from new fans, prompting Finch to announce the plan to release their third studio album with the American Grammy-Nominated music producer, Brian Virtue (known for working with bands such as Jane’s Addiction, Hawthorne Heights, Deftones, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Chevelle and more), and plans to tour North America in the fall of 2014.
