Three Second Kiss release new album “From Fire I Save the Flame”

Three Second Kiss

The Bologna-based post-hardcore trio Three Second Kiss are back with the release of their new record “From Fire I Save the Flame”. The record is being released 12 years after their last one, and is out on Overdrive Records.

“In fact, we never stopped.” – comment the band, talking about what is about to become the new chapter in their career. Twelve-years between their previous: “Nine tracks that do not pick up the band’s musical discourse where it was left off. At least to our ears it doesn’t sound the way we were.” – stress the members of Three Second Kiss.

Conceived between composition and instinct, heart and brain, light and darkness, influenced by endless displacements, logistical and existential difficulties, breakups and reconciliations, new loves and rediscovered friendships. “We do not review ourselves, as almost everyone does in their press kits. We do not quote individual songs praising their hidden virtues. Aren’t they ridiculous those bands who are self-congratulatory by putting themselves on the side of music writers? We will try not to do that. We are “inside” our sound and simply cannot define it from the outside. We just say that never like today, when life has become so complicated, dry, senseless, divisive, falsely social, never like today playing, composing, sharing music, and recording this record made sense to us.”

“However, we would like to report that to best capture this new state of mind, we called Don Zientara directly from Arlington/Washington DC to catch the sounds and reproduce the band’s amalgam. Don Zientara has been the perfect sound engineer to return the electricity and empathy of these 9 tracks of visionary and hard-hitting punk rock. Those sonic jams and freedom, free from a codified musical genre, which we believe have always been TSK’s trademark from the mid-1990s to the present, in that Italian post-punk scene able to cross national borders and get noticed abroad as well.”

Summing up the story-line of their newest release, the members of Three Second Kiss state: “From Fire I Save the Flame” is the record of a whole band, where there are no leads or leaders, but something that goes beyond the sum of its parts.”

As active as the trio was initially, in 1993, Three Second Kiss is also happy to share the details on their signing announcement: “We are happy that this album is coming out on Overdrive Records. We believe that the people who work there are driven by a sincere passion for the most direct and incisive music. We got to know some members of this family and we think we share the same musical history; we grew up with the same sounds and a sincere and unmediated attitude towards the musical world.”

The album is out today May 24th and the LP can be purchased here.
