Torche share ‘Times Missing’

Torche have shared Times Missing, which is the second track lifted from their first new album in over four years title ‘Admission’. “Times Missing is a Jekyll and Hyde song about the nights you don’t remember, but everyone else does,” singer/guitar player Steve Brooks knowingly shared. Take a listen via YouTube below.

‘Admission’ pre-orders, which include an instant download of Slide (https://youtu.be/-vsj1Hcy0k4), are available now via Relapse’s webstore (relapse.com/torche-admission). The 11-song album is available in various formats (CD/LP/CS/Digital) with several limited edition vinyl versions already sold out. The album artwork was created by Richard Vergez, a Cuban-American visual artist, whose work has been shown at No Romance Galleries (TriBeCa), Urban Arts Society (Chicago) and Kids of Dada (London).

Torche released their fourth album, and Relapse Records’ debut, ‘Restarter’ in 2015. The collection found the band on most year-end best of lists with Entertainment Weekly describing the album as “gloriously fuzzy, sludgy, hard-hitting” and calling the band members “four of loud rock’s most adroit genre-benders.” The Washington Post called ‘Restarter’ “otherworldly” and the Chicago Tribune saying “Torche’s music connects muscle, songcraft and drive in a way that few bands of recent vintage can match. “

Torche have also announced an expansion of their Summer tour, joining former label-mates, Baroness, for over a dozen dates. The bands last shared a stage in 2006 and have crossed paths multiple times throughout the years including Baroness’ singer John Baizley having created artwork for Torche’s self-titled debut.
