Torche album set for release

Official press release: Torche, the Florida/Georgia-based band the Village Voice dubbed "the legitimate sons of a union between Hüsker Dü and the Melvins," will release their Relapse Records' debut, Restarter, on Feb. 24. In an in-studio piece with Rolling Stone, bass player Jonathan Nuñez said the quartet began working on the 10-song album in November of 2013 and finished recording in the spring of this year. Nuñez told the magazine "The music is like what we do: very driving, very heavy on the toms, real pounding rhythm section, the guitars are just nonstop, but with a melodic twist. Then the vocals come in and it's this whole Psychedelic Furs – and maybe Guided By Voices – phrasing." "Moving forward, leaning backwards, twisting sideways and loving every new release," said singer/guitar player Steve Brooks. "Restarter is moody and still very much a Torche record." The cover art for Restarter was done by Santos (Kylesa, High On Fire).
