Torche unveil Bishop In Arms

Ahead of the release of Torche’s new album Restarter, we’ve been given the first play of new single Bishop In Arms.

Restarter is Torche’s first album on new label Relapse Records following on from their critically acclaimed Harmonicraft LP. Laced with the same infectious sludge as previous releases, Torche have upped their game yet again with their 2015 effort and makes us wonder what Florida put in the water.

Restarter will be released 23rd February on CD/LP/Deluxe 2xLP/Cassette/Digital, and is available to preorder now from iTunes (opens in new tab), Bandcamp and Relapse.
