TORCHE are a band consisting of four dudes playing the loudest and heaviest hard rock on the planet. Formed by vocalist and guitarist Steve Brooks in 2004 after the dissolution of cult sludge and stoner metal pioneers Floor, the group introduced the world to a refreshingly unique version of rock n' roll flavored with stoner and sludgy sensibilities. Originally from Miami, Florida, but now peppered across the country, TORCHE have spent the last 10 years shattering eardrums and captivating crowds with their infectiously original compositions and soaring, harmonic vocals.

Over the course of the band’s ten­ year existence, TORCHE have released three critically acclaimed full­lengths as well as a series of EPs and splits with such revered labels as Hydra Head, Robotic Empire, Volcom, and Amensian. Their 2008 breakthrough Meanderthal was described by Pitchfork as "an absolutely killer rock record" and was declared the #1 album of the year by Decibel Magazine. 2012's follow­up Harmonicraft was called "a true game­changer" by the BBC and "a pure fountain of instant gratification" by Spin.

Despite the praised they’ve received for their recorded works, TORCHE are known even more for their tremendous live performance and have toured the world relentlessly with a diverse pool of acts including Clutch, Mogwai, Hot Water Music, The Sword, Isis, and many more. In early 2014, the band signed with renowned label Relapse Records, and self­recorded their fourth full­length record Restarter. Full of what the band describes as some of their "heaviest songs to date," the record was produced by TORCHE guitarist Jonathan Nunez and mixed by Converge's Kurt Ballou and was once again a masterful display of top­notch songwriting, this time pitting stomach- churning lower end against the band’s characteristically high­flying vocals. Restarter’s reception was as good as any the band have seen in the past, with Pitchfork calling it “their most compelling record since Meanderthal,” and New Noise Magazine deeming TORCHE “one of the best metal bands active today.” TORCHE are here to prove that they are heavier, louder and more hum­able than anyone else, and right now, nobody dares to stand in their way.
