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 here. “’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.

Admission pre-orders are available now via Relapse’s webstore. Digital downloads and streaming services are available at http://ffm.to/torcheadmission.



Admission Tracklist:

The 11-song album is available in various formats (CD/LP/CS/Digital) with several highly-limited colored vinyl options on-sale now. The album artwork was created by Richard Vergez, a Cuban-American visual artist, who is known for his handmade collages that highlight the meeting of human and technological elements in our modern society. His 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 release "Admission" video
Torche has unveiled a video for “Admission”, with the clip for the album’s title track created by the band’s own Rick Smith and Jonathan Nuñez.



“'Admission,' the title track off of our new album, is an extremely important song to us on many levels. Steve has opened the doors to a deep and personal place, lyrically shedding light on his personal life, and I worked hard and diligently to capture the feeling of a song I wrote during trying times,” explains guitar player Nuñez, who also produced the album which is slated for a July 12 release via Relapse Records. “Through the use of effects and various pedals, including a couple of my own line, Nuñez Amps, the feeling of the track took the shape it was destined for. The delays and heavy overdrive are essential to the song and we wanted a video to visually capture what the delays and driven sounds provided sonically. With 15 hours, a minimal setup, help from a couple good friends, and our cellphones, the band was able to create a video we are excited about and feel is the perfect visual companion to a song, and record, that has us excited in our sixteenth year as a band as we were when we first started.”
TORCHE "Admission"
Billboard debuted the song last week, saying, “Torche once again constructs layers of guitar riffs that are somehow as airy as they are dense.” MetalSucks added, “Torche have not made a secret of the influence ’80s New Wave had on their new album, Admission — they’ve previously cited ‘the first three Gary Numan records as inspiration’ — but it really comes through on that record’s newly-released title track. Built around disco cymbals and a simple, starry-eyed guitar line, “Admission” has the same bittersweet-pop vibe of that movement’s high points.”

The video arrives both as Torche is on the eve of kicking off their first North American tour dates in support of the 11-song album, launching the first leg on July 8 in Tampa, and also announcing an additional two-plus-weeks run on the western side of the continent later this summer. Tickets for the newly announced shows are on-sale this Friday at 10 am pacific.

The band has given two previous previews of music from the 11-song album with streams of the songs “Slide” and “Times Missing”. The trio of tracks are available as instant downloads with digital pre-orders. Admissionis available in various formats (CD/LP/CS/Digital) with several limited edition vinyl versions already sold out. More information can be found via Relapse’s webstore. Admission’s cover art 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).

Mag deren Sound sehr. Und sind auch oft recht schmissig. Von daher: interessiert.

JO, gefällt mir Anhieb auch sehr gut. Ist halt auch ne Sound-Band. Nach der düsteren letzten finde ich wirkt sie wieder positiver und psychedelischer.

Zufällig gerade gefunden, dass die ein neues Album haben. Hatte die Band gar nicht so auf dem Schirm, obwohl eigentlich schon "Healer" in fast jeder meiner Rock-Mixe/Playlists unterkommen musste.
Admission ist ein sehr toller Song, gefiel mir in der Live-TV-Version sogar noch besser.

Sind leider nach Harmonicraft immer schwächer geworden. Die haben ihre Alleinstellungsmerkmale: Knackiger Mix aus Sludge Metal & Alternative Rock eingetauscht um eine von ganz vielen Psych Rock/Metal-Bands zu werden. Das selbe Problem wie bei Kylesa.
