In 2013, Finch reunited to its nearly original lineup and announced that they would embark on the 'What It Is To Burn' Ten Year Anniversary tour, The post-hardcore band performed the full-length in its entirety with a few extra bonuses for fans along the way to sold out crowds across the US, London (Brixton Academy) and Paris.
Having released two studio albums, one live album and two EPs to date and selling in excess of one million albums worldwide the Southern California troop are set to release their first studio album in nine years via Spinefarm Records on October 3 2014, Produced Brian Virtue (Deftones. 30 Sec to Mars, Janes Addiction, Audioslave).
'Back To Oblivion' marks the return of Finch with the band's first full length album in over nine years, 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 world 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.
