Torche's second full-length, Meanderthal, is set for an April 8th release through Hydra Head (vinyl to be released on Robotic Empire).
Recorded throughout November 2007 at God City Studios, the 13 track album is Torche's first with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Genghis Tron, Disfear) at the helm.
"Having built a unique sound with their self-titled debut and followup “In Return” EP, Torche fully realize their potential with their most infectious recordings to date. No amount of heaviness is compromised on “Meanderthal”, an album that should fuel fans heavy fix as well as their undeniable need for catchyness. - Andy Low (Robotic Empire, completely biased supporter of Torche)
