Torche, the Florida-meets-Georgia quartet, have signed with Relapse Records. Their new album is expected to surface this summer, but the band have announced a celebratory, post-recording show at St. Vitus Bar in New York for 26 February 2014.


The band changed its name from Torch to Torche in 2005 and since then they have built an impressive back-catalogue. Torche are often cited for their masterful combination of melodic songwriting and heavy music, creating a strange, unique brew of sludge.


“We’re looking forward to working with a label that has stood the test of time while continuing to expand their diverse roster.” explained bassist Jonathan Nuñez, adding, “Releasing this record on Relapse lined up pretty well since it contains some of the heaviest songs we’ve written to date.” The band is currently recording at Pinecrust Studio in Miami with Nunez serving as producer and Kurt Ballou mixing the album.
