Torche, who recently made their late night television debut via Late Night with Seth Meyers, have added two new legs of tour dates: a November outing for the U.S. and an extensive UK trek in December.

The tour extension adds to what has already been an extremely busy period for the Miami-born outfit. The four-piece released their fifth album, “Admission” (Relapse Records) in July, did the aforementioned late night TV outing, and taped a Kerrang! K! Pit episode (see here). They have been crisscrossing North America since early Summer including festival appearances at Sled Island and Doomed and Stoned, three weeks of shows with Baroness, and headline shows across the midwest, south and northeast including a show at Brooklyn Bazar where the live video for “Infierno” the band premieres today was filmed. Watch the video below.

The 11-song “Admission” has been met with widespread critical acclaim, Stereogum said that “"Admission", like every Torche album before it, kicks all kinds of ass”, Billboard remarked that, “Torche once again constructs layers of guitar riffs that are somehow as airy as they are dense”, while Brooklyn Vegan summed it up by saying, “Torche do everything on this album with exactly the kind of passion, power and precision you’d expect from a well-oiled machine like this one”.

Torche released their fourth album, and Relapse Records’ debut, “Restarter” in 2015. The collection found the band on most year-end best of lists with Entertainment Weekly describing the album as “gloriously fuzzy, sludgy, hard-hitting” and calling the band members “four of loud rock’s most adroit genre-benders”. The Washington Post called “Restarter”: “otherworldly” and the Chicago Tribune saying “Torche’s music connects muscle, songcraft and drive in a way that few bands of recent vintage can match”.
