Label: Epitaph Since their 2009 debut ‘Old Pride’, Maryland quintet Pianos Become The Teeth have been a staple in the new era post-hardcore movement alongside bands such as La Dispute and Touché Amoré. What sets Pianos Become The Teeth apart from these bands, however, is their desire to evolve and move away from what made them so prominent in the first place. The musicianship throughout ‘Wait For Love’ is phenomenal and showcases how much the band have worked to perfect their less abrasive direction. They’ve always shone lyrically, and the light still beams strong here, especially on curtain closer ‘Blue’, an ode to Durfey‘s father and a love letter to his own son. The slow and dreary track is heart-wrenching, and a perfect climax to a personally reflective record. ‘Wait For Love’ is a powerful and carefully crafted record. It enriches and helps define the purpose of previous album ‘Keep You’; a transitional release of a band cocooned in a new form, not quite finding themselves, and completes the metamorphosis. It’s a phenomenal offering, and without question Pianos Become The Teeth at their career best.
