Torche prepares to release Hydra Head debut

Wednesday, January 30, 2008 9:28 PM PT


Torche's second full-length, "Meanderthal," is set for an April 8th release through Hydra Head Records (vinyl to be released by Robotic Empire).

Recorded throughout November 2007 at Godcity studios in Massachusetts, the thirteen-track album is Torche's first with Kurt Ballou (Genghis Tron, Disfear) at the helm.

"Having built a unique sound with their self-titled debut and follow-up 'In Return' EP, Torche fully realize their potential with their most infectious recordings to date. No amount of heaviness is compromised on 'Meanderthal,' an album that should fuel fans heavy fix as well as their undeniable need for catchyness. - Andy Low (Robotic Empire)
