On Vitriola, the first Cursive album in six years, he revisits those career peaks from a different angle. This is the first Cursive record to feature original drummer Clint Schnase and Saddle Creek house producer Mike Mogis in 12 years, but, more important, the first with a cellist since The Ugly Organ. They haven’t sounded this inspired since. Given his multiple projects and side-hustles, Kasher won’t make a Cursive record for any old thing. Cursive records have to be about the only things-marriage, art, sex, religion; even their least-imaginative work required a libretto.
Vitriola is the eighth studio album by the post-hardcore band Cursive, released on October 5, 2018 on the band's own label 15 Passenger Records. The album is the first release from Cursive in six years, the first with original drummer Clint Schnase since 2006's Happy Hollow, and the first Cursive release to feature a cellist – Megan Seibe – since 2003's The Ugly Organ.
For an album that is outwardly concerned with contemporary political issues, Vitriola is so preoccupied with trying to recapture the allure of earlier Cursive records that it comes off as stuck in the past. On a surface level, Vitriola does succeed in sounding like The Ugly Organ, and the return of the cello is probably the record’s greatest asset. But Tim Kasher’s political and social critiques here seem aimless. Or consider a donation?
The album runs the sonic gamut between rich, resonant melodicism, Hitchcockian anxiety, and explosive catharsis - and no Cursive album would be complete without scream-along melodies and lyrics that, upon reflection, make for unlikely anthems. There’s a palpable unease that wells beneath Vitriola’s simmering requiems and fist-shakers. Vitriola raises a stark question: is this it? Is everything simply broken, leaving us hopeless and nihilistic? Maybe not.
