TORCHE ANNOUNCE SUMMER CO-HEADLINING TOUR WITH MELT-BANANA; BAND CURRENTLY ON THE ROAD IN SUPPORT OF RESTARTER

Torche has confirmed a co-headline tour with Japan’s Melt-Banana, with the dates kicking off on July 2 at Dante’s in Portland, Ore.

Torche recently released Restarter, the band’s debut for Relapse Records, and their best selling album to date, with the ten-song collection landing on multiple Billboard charts and Pitchfork calling the set “their most compelling record since Meandrathal” and Entertainment Weekly dubbing the band “loud rock’s most adroit genre-benders.”

Torche is currently in the midst of a North American tour, playing Skully’s Music Diner in Columbus, Ohio this evening.

Tickets for the Torche/Melt-Banana tour are on sale this Thursday, March 19. Learn More

Torche's 'Restarter' Released Today!

Heavy rock titans TORCHE make their Relapse debut with the thunderous Restarter, a ten song triumph of an album. TORCHE rose to popularity merging huge infectious melodies with downtuned, crushing sludgey rock and on Restarter they've perfected the marriage. This is a record that is simultaneously hummable and heavy that will just as easily appeal to fans of Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth as it will Melvins and High On Fire-heads. But what truly sets TORCHE apart from their peers is their ability to use top-notch songwriting and soaring, harmonic vocals to create records that are heavier and louder and hookier than anyone else out there.


“As harsh, heavy and mean as they have been in nearly a decade. Torche have made their most compelling record since Meanderthal.” 7.9/10 -Pitchfork

“It feels like a Big Rock Album, the kind that we barely get from any band these days, no matter what part of the mainstream or underground they hail from.” 8/10 -Spin

“…gloriously fuzzy, sludgy, hard-hitting fourth album from four of loud rock’s most adroit genre-benders” - Entertainment Weekly “The Must List”

"Laced with the same infectious sludge as previous releases, Torche have upped their game yet again with their 2015 effort and makes us wonder what Florida put in the water." -Metal Hammer

“Torche has proven (and continues to prove) that it’s one of the best metal bands active today.” -New Noise Magazine

TORCHE SHARE RESTARTER IN ITS ENTIRETY VIA NOISEY; ALBUM STREAM INCLUDES TWO PREVIOUSLY UNHEARD SONGS: “BELIEVE IT” AND “NO SERVANTS”

Torche is streaming their forthcoming album, Restarter (Feb. 24, Relapse Records), via Noisey (http://noisey.vice.com/blog/torche-restarter-stream).

The album stream follows a week of premieres as the band rolled out new songs via Alternative Press, Stereogum, Paste and Metal Sucks. Noisey’s album stream debuts two previously unheard tracks: “Believe It” and “No Servants.”

Torche’s Relapse Records’ debut has received widespread praise from Rolling Stone (“bass-booming”), Revolver (“The album finds them further honing their ‘heavy pop’ approach, infusing sludgy, bass-heavy slabs of sound with bright and buoyant melodies”), Decibel (“a clamorous slab of riff-driven sludge-pop”), Spin (“thundering”), Stereogum (“They are masters of melody and songwriting”) and Outburn (“ridiculously catchy”).

Fans of the band can try their skills at Torche vs. Robots: Annihilation Affair (www.torchevsrobots.com), a single-player game featuring each of the Torche band members as characters trying to save the city of Miami from destruction bend robots. Fans who play the game are eligible to win a prize pack that includes Restarter on vinyl, a t-shirt, two tickets to see Torche on tour and stickers. To enter, contestants must upload a video to YouTube which shows them beating the game with the hash tag #torchevsrobots. One prize pack per band member/character will be awarded with winners picked on Feb. 23.
