Official press release:

Miami's heavy rock quartet Torche release Admission, the band's fifth album, and first new music since 2015's critically-lauded Restarter, on July 12 via Relapse Records.

"This album is more revealing of who we are. I think the core of the band is happier and more inspired than we have been in some time, and we've got somebody new who's excited to be a part of it. It's just refreshing. It feels right. It feels real," says guitar player Jon Nuñez, referencing the band's new line-up which includes a shift from bass to guitar for Nuñez and the addition of bass player Eric Hernandez (Wrong). Steve Brooks (guitar/vocals) and Rick Smith (drummer) round-out the band.

"Slide," a new song from the Nuñez produced album, is streaming now:





"'Slide' is one of the first songs Eric came to the table with, fully realized and arranged," explains Smith. "Eric is a total beast of a songwriter. I suggested he use the first three Gary Numan records as inspiration and he came back at us with some melodically sound material that nailed the Torche vibe."
