Torche_Restarter

Torche, for the uninitiated, are the proprietors of upbeat sludge pop and happy-go-lucky doom grooves. For residing in a genre (and on a label) that does business almost solely in more serious negative vibes, Torche come grinning ear to ear, weaving fuzzy distortion and downtuned riffs into songs that are seriously fun. Their new album Restarter has seen the most hype and anticipation of any of the band’s releases to date, and it all finally comes to a head with the album’s full-length premiere over at Noisey.

Restarter hits the streets February 24th. You can still secure your copy by visiting Relapse.com. Shortly after the album’s release, the band will hit the road with labelmates Nothing. Get dates below:
