Announce UK tour, release new album Songs for Singles on October 4th.
Steve Brooks – (Guitars/Vocals), Jonathan Nuñez – (Bass), Rick Smith – (Drums)
Torche return to the UK this November for a string of UK dates in support of their forthcoming new record, Songs for Singles. Torche’s upcoming addition to a six year stretch of well deserved lionization within the world of progressive metal, is basically a super solid collection of singles (though we’re pretty sure the title actually refers to one’s legal interpersonal status) written by, and therefore in, the instantly appealing songwriting style developed by the band.
Now, if you are unfamiliar with the Torche because, perhaps you’ve been time travelin’ or sliding in and out of polar universes since the early 2000’s, critics commonly refer to the aforementioned songwriting approach as doom and or sludge pop, but I/we generally choose to refrain from using such terminology when commenting on the group in question because if a sub-genre exists surrounding the sound that Torche has pioneered, I/we would prefer to give honest credit where it is due… ya dig?
So, Torche and every bit of music they produce sounds like Torche, and the bands that have followed suit… well they also sound like Torche… A bit bold and maybe a little arrogant for us to point out, but why beat around the bush… Semantics etcetera aside… You, just like me, have probably been waiting patiently for some new material since Meanderthal! Well here it is. Enjoy.
Be sure to catch the band on one of the following dates…
