For the last decade, hard rocking Florida outfit Torche has been blowing minds and melting faces with their bludgeoning guitars, heavy drums, and psychedelic vocals. Their unique sound combines the ferocity of metal with the accessibility of pop, making for a sonically expansive experience that's as blistering as it is catchy. At their live shows Torche leaves a trail of scorched earth in their wake with epic tracks like "Kicking" and "King Beef", thrilling ticket buyers with dramatic tempo changes, elemental breakdowns, and searing guitar riffs. Their music is savage without being noisy, striking a perfect balance that has fans of both metal and rock thrashing their brains out every time the band takes the stage.
Torche was formed in Miami, FL in 2004 by a group of musicians hailing from several other local bands including Floor and Cavity. They introduced listeners to their self-described "thunder-pop" sound in 2005 with an eponymous debut album, receiving favorable reviews from critics before hitting the road on tour. They followed up in 2008 with sophomore album Meanderthal, an ambitious and wide-ranging collection of songs that earned praise from Pitchfork and ranked at No. 1 on Decibel Magazine's Top 40 Extreme Albums of 2008 list. Tours with Harvey Milk and Coheed and Cambria followed, and in 2012 the group released their third album Harmonicraft to another round of stellar reviews. Electrifying performers known for their uncompromising creativity and hard-hitting sound, Torche continues to floor fans on their can't-miss tours.
