Torche by Keans Llamera…
Florida metallers Torche have set July 12th as the official release date for their fifth studio full-length album and second LP through Relapse Records, Admission. A brand new song dubbed “Slide” has just premiered, and can be streamed below.
Regarding the impending record and the band’s current lineup (which features the addition of bass player Eric Hernandez of Wrong fame), guitarist Jonathan Nuñez says:
This album is more revealing of who we are. I think the core of the band is happier and more inspired than we have been in some time, and we’ve got somebody new who’s excited to be a part of it. It’s just refreshing. It feels right. It feels real.
Speaking about the new track, drummer Rick Smith adds:
‘Slide’ is one of the first songs Eric came to the table with, fully realized and arranged. Eric is a total beast of a songwriter. I suggested he use the first three Gary Numan records as inspiration and he came back at us with some melodically sound material that nailed the Torche vibe.
To coincide with the big news, Torche have also announced North American tour dates, including stops at Philly’s Underground Arts on August 1 [TIX], NYC at Brooklyn Bazaar on August 2 [TIX], Hamden, CT at Space Ballroom on August 5 [TIX], and more. The trek will feature special guests TBA.
