They And The Children - Tour / Full Album Stream

They and the Children - East Coast Tour (July 25 - Aug 03)
* In support of debut full-length Home
* Stream the entire album at

Middletown, Connecticut's They and the Children is leaving today for a short tour of the East Coast in support of their debut full-length Home.

The record - which is available in both CD and vinyl formats - was released by Kill Normal on July 1st, 2008. You can pick up a copy from the band on tour or from the label here.

Expanding on TATC's brand of crushing, epic hardcore laid out on their 2005 EP, Thoughts On Becoming a Ghost (Tor Johnson Records), Home is even more bombastic and vibrantly dynamic, alternating between thrash-inspired riffage, slowly-churning, ominous grooves and soaring, melodic interludes. The album is a testament to the band's commitment to the DIY community, as well as a call for solidarity between those of us who realize that society is becoming so commercialized that it can barely be considered a "culture" any more.

Head on over to and stream the album in its entirety. You can also grab two free mp3s for the songs "Mechanical" and "Invisible."

TATC play blazing, fuming anthems, but they also slow the tempo at times, creating labyrinthine efforts that simply are awe-inspiring. - Jersey Beat

TATC have found a point where hardcore, drone and psychedelia meet and the confluence of the three is akin to rocket fuel. -

Home is an epic, sludgy, bubbling blend of crescendo-crammed creation. - Punktastic

Home is a lush and beautiful album with a rough edge. - Late Night Wallflower
