Out Today On Pure Noise Records

Pure Noise Records has just release Troubled Coast’s i’ve been thinking about leaving you 7.” The Bay Area band’s EP is limited to 1000 copies on 7″ vinyl and is available in several different color options as well as at all digital outlets. Check out the cover art and track listing below.

“In early 2011, a band from the San Francisco Bay area released one of the best, if not the best, post-hardcore album of the year. That band is Troubled Coast. Not even a year later, Troubled Coast has released another record, the band’s first for Pure Noise Records, the 7” I’ve Been Thinking About Leaving You. If you are a fan of the early days of post-hardcore, before kids decided dubstep and electronics were a good idea to incorporate into the genre, you will love this band. Listen now so you can say you were a fan before the band took the scene by storm.”

“Apparently Pure Noise Records is my favorite label now. The courtship between me and Pure Noise may have started with downtrodden pop-punkers The Story So Far, but it’s most certainly hit a high note with the La Dispute-disciples, Troubled Coast. Troubled Coast create an amazing amount of space throughout the chaos. On a track like “La Jatee,” there’s grand moments of catharsis nuzzled up against spacious guitar meanderings. I Was Thinking About Leaving You mark(s) Troubled Coast as a band poised to gain a heck of a lot of new followers…(they) do a pretty damn good job keeping us entertained, keeping us thinking and keeping us yelling along.”-

“…a fantastic EP..Fans of La Dispute, Touche Amore and mewithoutYou will enjoy this…Tracks like ‘Patient Hands’ and ‘La Jette’ show a definite progression in the band’s songwriting…There isn’t a bad song on the EP, and older fans will lap up ‘I’m Still a Loner, Dottie’, harking back to some of their previous output. However, the overriding feeling is one of progression, and in just four songs that is an impressive achievement. Keep your eyes on this seven piece, they may have gone from being labeled imitators to propelling the genre forward to a larger audience.”- 

“…packs enormous punch. After bands such as Touché Amoré, Pianos Become the Teeth and La Dispute made inroads into 2011, Troubled Coast proved they could hold their own, and more. I can see kids flocking to and swarming shows for this live. Seeing this band with Touché, Pianos and La Dispute would probably be one of the best shows ever.”-
