Stream new Torche track, “Minions”

Torche interview Restarter

On Feb. 24, Torche will release Restarter, their follow-up to 2012’s Harmonicraft, via Relapse. And today, the band has shared the first track from the album, titled “Minions.” From the get-go, it sounds a lot like Torche: big and meaty guitars, heavy-ass riffs, drums that truly pummel, and hooks that make them stand apart from the rest of the metal pack. Perhaps that’s why they don’t often get called a “metal” band, though you can definitely hear metal in this, even if it’s just one element of the thunderous rock music the group hammers out.

Listen to “Minions” below, and check out the album’s tracklist and the band’s upcoming tour dates.
