Torche are a band consisting of four dudes playing the loudest and heaviest hard rock on the planet. Formed by vocalist / guitarist Steve Brooks in 2004 after the dissolution cult, sludge / stoner metal pioneers Floor, the group introduced the world to a refreshingly unique version of rock n' roll. Torche have spent the last 10 years shattering ears and captivating crowds with their infectiously original heavy rock complete with soaring, harmonic vocals.  

The band has released three full-lengths and a series of EPs / splits with such revered labels as Hydra Head, Robotic Empire, Volcom and Amensian and has toured relentlessly with a diverse pool of acts including Mogwai, Hot Water Music, The Sword, Isis and many more.  In early 2014 the band signed with renowned label Relapse Records and entered the studio to record their highly anticipated fourth full-length and follow-up to 2012's Harmonicraft.
