Torche’s Jonathan Nuñez on The MetalSucks Podcast #296
This week our guest is Torche guitarist Jonathan Nuñez. We discuss his switch from bass to guitar on the new album Admission, the benefits of writing an album with members living in different locations, how to make sure a 7” record is profitable for a band, why he feels the David Lee Roth-era Van Halen is a musical enigma, growing up in Miami, being exposed to a variety of music and how his musical journey ended up in left field from his background and culture, the journey of music before the internet, and the excitement of still having friends that regularly expose each other to new music.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn tackle the events of Tau Cross: Relapse Records dropping the band, the other members’ claim that they were blindsided by frontman Rob Miller, and Miller’s own response showing his true colors.
Songs: Torche – “Admission” and “Times Missing”
