Torche premiere new song

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
Torche, the Southeastern quartet whose effortless knack for combining lush melodies with heavy music have turned out some of the most inspired albums over the last decade, share a new song “Annihilation Affair”.

Torche’s new album Restarter will be out on Relapse Records on February 20 in GAS, Benelux and Finland, February 23 in the rest of Europe and UK and on February 24 in the US.

Bass player and producer Jonathan Nuñez said of the new album: “I feel it’s strong sonically and harder hitting than the previous record [Harmonicraft]. I’m happy with the last record, but I feel on this record, it’s just more solid song to song. You’ve got to move forward. You can’t release the same record over and over.”

The band offered up the first listen to their new music with the December stream of “Minions”, a song Nuñez told Rolling Stone was a “classic Torche song” and went on to call a “heavy, melodic crusher.”

Restarter will be released on CD/LP/Deluxe 2xLP/Cassette/Digital, with pre-orders available now with songs “Harmonslaught” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll Mantasy,” will be included on deluxe editions. Digital pre-orders offer an instant download of “Annihilation Affair” (http://geni.us/RestarterDLX), Bandcamp (www.torche.bandcamp.com) and physically via Relapse (http://www.relapse.com/torche-restarter).
