Torche, the Florida-meets-Georgia heavy rock quartet have announced a short run of US headlining dates this September / October. The dates kick off September 18th in Miami, FL and run through October 1st in Orlando, FL. The band has also recently announced a headlining Australian tour in October.
The band, who recently signed to Relapse Records, completed recording their newest full-length earlier this year at Pinecrust Studio in Miami, with bassist Jonathan Nunez behind the boards. The album was then mixed by Converge’s Kurt Ballou and will see a release in early 2015 via Relapse.
Torche are often cited for their masterful combination of melodic songwriting and heavy music, with Spin dubbing their music “sludge-pop” and Filter saying the band proves “a heavy-rock band can be optimistic and sincere-without sacrificing any of the edge.” The band’s most recent material can be found at torche.bandcamp.com.
