Steve Brooks has had quite a year. It’s only been a few months since a reunited Floor released a very solid comeback album of poppy sludge, along with the expected touring and press cycles that come with it. Lest his other projects begin to feel neglected though, it appears Torche is back in full swing as well. The band had already announced a smattering of Australian tour dates for October, but via the band’s Facebook page yesterday they also announced a string of US dates for late September. Check out the dates for both tours after the jump.

Torche Fall 2014 Tour:
Sep 18: Miami, FL – Churchill’s Pub
Sep 19: Jacksonville, FL – Burro Bar
Sep 20: Gainesville, FL – The Atlantic
Sep 21: Atlanta, GA – 97 Estoria
Sep 22: Nashville, TN – The End
Sep 23: Columbus, OH – Ace of Cups
Sep 24: Akron, OH – Musica
Sep 25: Chicago, IL – The Promontory
Sep 26: Pittsburgh, PA – The Smiling Moos
Sep 27: Brooklyn, NY – St. Vitus
Sep 29: Chapel Hill, NC – Cat’s Cradle Back Room
Sep 30: Tampa, FL – The Orpheum
Oct 01: Orlando, FL – Backbooth
Oct 16: Brisbane, AUS – Crowbar
Oct 17: North Perth, AUS – Rosemount Hotel
Oct 18: Richmond, AUS – The Corner Hotel
Oct 19: Sydney, AUS – Manning Bar

The band is also reportedly expected to have a new album next year through Relapse Records, though details at this time are scant. With the success of Oblation and Harmonicraft before that though, I think it’s safe to say that whatever Brooks and co. come out with next will be delightfully hook-filled and sludgier than a Florida swamp in August.
