Listen to Thirty Seconds of a New Torche Song, Get Dates for Their Mini-Tour with Municipal Waste


Torche - RestarterA couple of weeks ago Torche announced that they’d be putting out a new album in early 2015 and we didn’t get around to reporting on it because a) there wasn’t any new music to share, and b) we’re dumbasses. Well hey, now there’s new music [almost]! And we’ve stopped being dumbasses [maybe]. It’s a thirty second preview of a track called “Annihilation Affair,” so it’s not the full monte, but unsurprisingly it sounds incredibly Torche-y in all the best ways. New album Restarter comes out February 24th via Relapse. Listen:

Hearing the above song sample really just makes me want to see these dudes, where they positively CRUSH with the force of 1000 Orange cabs cranked to 11. Thankfully Torche will be out on tour with Clutch and Lionize starting later this month, then they’ll link up with Municipal Waste for a short string of dates, and they’ll follow that with a European/UK tour in the spring.
