Torche, the Floridian and Georgian outfit you know and love, will release their Relapse Records debut, Restarter, on February 24.
In an in-studio piece with Rolling Stone, bass player Jonathan Nuñez said the quartet began working on the 10-song album in November of 2013 and finished recording in the spring of this year.
Nuñez told the magazine:
“The music is like what we do: very driving, very heavy on the toms, real pounding rhythm section, the guitars are just nonstop, but with a melodic twist. Then the vocals come in and it’s this whole Psychedelic Furs — and maybe Guided By Voices — phrasing.”
“Moving forward, leaning backwards, twisting sideways and loving every new release,” said singer/guitar player Steve Brooks. “Restarter is moody and still very much a Torche record.”
