Torch, Nothing, and Wrong laid waste to Philly’s Underground Arts venue with BTS’s Dante Torrieri on hand to capture the devastation in photos laid out below.
This evening’s top billing and Miami’s own Torche recently confirmed an additional round of dates for their previously announced month-long fall European headlining tour starting this November. Having toured in Australia, New Zealand, North America, and Western Europe over the past year, this tour will see Torche bring their unique brand of doom metal and hard rock to Scandinavia and much of Eastern Europe.
Torche recently released Restarter, the band’s debut for Relapse Records, and their best selling album to date, with the ten-song collection landing on multiple worldwide charts and Pitchfork calling the set “their most compelling record since Meanderthal.” The album can be streamed in it’s entirety via the Bandcamp player below.
Philly’s own Nothing remain prolific as the Baltimore-based label A389 Records have recently reissued an expanded version of the 2011 EP, Downward Years To Come. One of the new additions to the reissue is an acoustic version of “B&E” which now has an accompanying music video compiled of home invasion security footage thanks to a bout of jet lag that had songwriter Domenic Palermo combing through odd videos at even odder hours following a recent acoustic tour in Japan. Fans who are familiar with the much more crushing version of “B&E” from last year’s critically-acclaimed debut LP, Guilty of Everything, will be intrigued by the songwriting underpinning this earlier version which The FADER describes as “skeletal and eerie.” The band recently wrapped up new studio recording sessions with renowned engineer and producer Will Yip at Studio 4, which is set to be released in 2016 on Collect Records.
Relapse Records announced the signing of Miami, FL noise rock quartet Wrong earlier this year. Formed in 2014 from the ashes of Capsule– Wrong (Eric Hernandez – Guitar/Vocals, Brian Hernandez – Drums, Andres Ascanio – Bass, Ryan Haft – Guitars) released their debut EP Stop Giving last October via Robotic Empire and feature members of Torche and Kylesa among their ranks.
Wrong entered the studio in August, at the recently relocated PineCrust Studios (Torche) in Gainesville, FL, to put the finishing touches on their debut full- length, which will see it’s release next year via Relapse. Wrongs‘s debut EP can be streamed in full below.
