Torche @ Webster Hall (more by Jason Bergman)
We just received confirmation that Dredg will hit the road with Miami thunder trio Torche and NOT with the Norwegian nu-metal quartet Torch (as occasionally misreported), for a string of dates in April. One of those nights is at Highline Ballroom with Maps & Atlases on April 19th. Tickets go on sale here, though no on-sale date has been specified.
Torche's aforementioned 12" EP, Healer / Across The Shields is currently on pre-order via Hydra Head. The EP contains the two tracks from Meanderthal that bear it's title, two music videos for those tracks on a bonus DVD, and two NEW jams ("Mash It Up" & "Sugar Glider"). Pick copies of that 12" in purple, orange and black.
Torche released my numero uno heavy record of last year, Meanderthal. They have been playing as a trio since the departure of Juan Montoya, and will be in Atlanta this weekend as part of the Scion Rock Fest. All dates below...
