    Wait For Love is a beautiful consideration of what comes next. [No. 150, p.55]

    Their last effort, Keep You, signified this transition fully after a split with Touche Amore hinted at it years ago, and now, Wait For Love cements the change. Gone are the days of The Lack Long After and Old Pride but in this rebirth, something just as beautiful has emerged.

    Wait for Love shows that Pianos Become the Teeth have a firm grip on a sound and identity that's beautiful, poignant and wholly their own, and it shows that they can keep maturing without having to constantly recreate themselves.

    There’s no doubt that Pianos Become The Teeth are fully aware of where they want to be; all that’s left is a little more refinement and consistency to get them to that point.

    After a four year wait, Pianos Become the Teeth release their new musical venture 'Wait for Love'. Switching from devastating lyrical passagesAfter a four year wait, Pianos Become the Teeth release their new musical venture 'Wait for Love'. Switching from devastating lyrical passages and angsty vocal performances, to cryptic song meanings and heartwarming melodies feels like the wrong move. The new stripped-down sound perhaps went too far, eliminating anything that made the group recognizable. Expand
