Midwestern hardcore landmarks Expire recently toured Japan for four headlining dates. After seeing guitarist Zach Dear posting gold on Instagram, we had to see what else was hiding on their iPhones.

They've finished their new studio album, Pretty Low, which will see a mid-2014 release on Bridge Nine Records.
