TORCHE Signs With RELAPSE RECORDSFebruary 5, 2014
TORCHE, the Florida-meets-Georgia quartet whose album "Harmonicraft" was proclaimed "one of the strongest guitar-rock records 2012 will yield" by Alternative Press, has signed with Relapse Records.
"We're looking forward to working with a label that has stood the test of time while continuing to expand their diverse roster," explained TORCHE's Jonathan Nuñez, adding, "Releasing this record on Relapse lined up pretty well since it contains some of the heaviest songs we've written to date."
TORCHE is often cited for its masterful combination of melodic songwriting and heavy music, with Spin dubbing the band's music "sludge-pop" and Filter saying the band proves "a heavy-rock band can be optimistic and sincere-without sacrificing any of the edge."
TORCHE is currently recording its new album at Pinecrust Studio in Miami, with Nunez serving as producer and CONVERGE's Kurt Ballou set to mix. The as-yet-untitled CD is due this summer.
TORCHE will play a celebratory, post-recording show on February 26 at St. Vitus Bar in New York.
