Belle Haven have returned with their first taste of music in 2023. I Can't Find The Words is an emo belter, one for the people who enjoy blink-182 (you can't tell me those vocals don't resemble Mark Hoppus) and Dashboard Confessional in equal measures.
I Can't Find The Words premiered last night on triple j's short.fast.loud - its anthemic nature and subject matter captures the emotional turmoil of the end of a relationship. The feelings of regret, shame, reflection, forgiveness and the struggle to put those feelings into words are the main elements of Belle Haven's latest.
The single arrives just in time for Belle Haven's support slot on Banks Arcade's upcoming national tour, which begins this weekend.
Banks Arcade will embark on their first-ever headline tour of Australia with special guests Belle Haven and Liveconformdie opening all dates.
Seven nights of metalcore fun begin on Friday, 4 February, on the Sunshine Coast, followed by shows in Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide.

Promoting their debut album, Future Lovers, released in July 2022, vocalist Joshua O'Donnell said, "We have spent all of last year touring non-stop and refining our live sound.
"We are so excited to go out on our first headline tour of Australia, playing our album in full and bringing our best show yet to the fans. The supports on this run are incredible, and we are big fans of them, so these shows are going to be insane. We look forward to seeing you at a show next year!"
Banks Arcade have made a name for themselves thanks to their tireless work and for colliding metalcore and electronic music together. From supporting Yours Truly, In Hearts Wake and Thornhill on their respective Aussie headline tours this year, to performances in the UK, including Download Festival and Great Escape Festival, Banks Arcade are now turning their gaze to celebrating their impressive recent full length on stages around Australia in the new year.
Belle Haven are no newcomers to the local metal scene. The Melbourne quartet was formed in 2010 and has toured alongside Creeper, Dance Gavin Dance, Silverstein and In Hearts Wake. The beloved band deliver searing tunes, unforgettable live performances and a boundless ability to capture life's experiences with effortless charm.
Belle Haven is David De La Hoz, Tom Mitchell and Daniel Marinakis.
