Torche Announce US Tour Dates w/ Beings, High On Fire, Boris, Baroness and More!

In 2008, hardworking Miami trio Torche’s Meanderthal topped a number of year-end lists, metal and otherwise. They were a standout at SXSW 2010, partly because the entire room was singing along (and also because of Steve Brooks’ goofy faces). Good news, for folks jonesing for more of those sugary sludge anthems: Brooks & Co. are following up Meanderthal with the playful titled Songs For Singles. These could be radio hits. They could also be songs for people in search of love. Whatever the case, per usual, they don’t waste any time: We get eight well-honed Torche anthems in just over 20 minutes. (Fans of the epic: 6-minute Closer “Out Again” will make you wet your pants.) - Stereogum

Fresh off of a massive U.S. tour with Coheed and Cambria, Torche is again touring the States! (well a portion of them at least)... Difference is, this time they are touring in pre-support of a new CD/LP Songs for Singles, which BTW is not a collection of previously released tracks... S.F.S. is a CD/LP entirely comprised of new material! And it is gonna be the best! let me tell you.

* Songs For Singles is out September 21st on Hydra Head Records
