torche1Florida/Georgia based alt-punk quartet Torche have announced that their new record, Restarter will drop on February 24th. Restarter will be their first release since joining Relapse Records. Bass player Jonathan Nunez recently spoke to Rolling Stone about recording the new album:

“The music is like what we do: very driving, very heavy on the toms, real pounding rhythm section, the guitars are just nonstop, but with a melodic twist. Then the vocals come in and it’s this whole Psychedelic Furs – and maybe Guided By Voices – phrasing.”

The band have also announced tour dates across the US and the UK for late 2014 and into 2015. Check out the full dates, and the cover art for Restarter below.
