by Relapse

Torche have announced a new album. The record is called Restarter and is due out February 24, 2015 via Relapse Records. Bassist Jonathan Nuñez spoke to Rolling Stone about the album. “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.”

The band is also going on tour.
