Miami purveyors of hard rock TORCHE have inked a deal with Volcom Entertainment. The band’s as-yet-untitled new album is currently being recorded at Miami’s Pinecrust studio for a spring/summer 2012 release. The CD will be mixed by Kurt Ballou of CONVERGE.
Next month, TORCHE will release a limited-edition split 12-inch single with PART CHIMP that will be available at the group’s recently-announced tour stops and online via Chunklet. The TORCHE side of the split features three GUIDED BY VOICES covers. The cover features artwork by the world-renowned sci-fi illustrator Trevor Claxton.
TORCHE‘s collection of singles, aptly titled “Songs For Singles”, was released in September 2010 via Hydra Head.
