Torche

In between the Stellas and liter bottles of Ketel One, Torche managed to crank out a short, but powerful set during their stay at Highline Ballroom on April 19th with Dredg and From Monument To Masses. The Dredge/Torche trek soldiers on and concludes in Cali at the end of May. Then, after three weeks off, the trio will hit the friendly skies to play some European dates with Kylesa and the mighty Coalesce! Full Coalesce, Torche, Kylesa dates are below.

Coalesce's new album, Ox, hits store shelves on June 9th.

Kylesa, Mastodon, and Intronaut play Irving Plaza and Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 9th and 10th respectively. Both shows are sold out. Kylesa also has scheduled shows at Maxwell's (May 27th, tickets here) and Cake Shop on May 30th with Darsombra and Stinking Lizaveta.

No pictures of Dredg, but a few of From Monument to Masses, and more of Torche from the Highline Ballroom show, and a whole bunch of tour dates, below....

meh. I was completely underwhelmed by Torche on this tour in Portland (http://jazzsick.wordpress.com/2009/04/04/dredg-live2009/). Dredg & From Monuments... were pretty good. Actually Dredg was awesome, IMO.

Dredg is fucking boring.

I heard Torche played only 25 minutes. So glad I didn't pay $25 and stayed home instead.

Totally. If they were really metal, they'd communicate by sending messages in lamb's blood on the wing of a vulture, like all the legitimate bands do.

No pictures of Dredg? fuck dat! IMO one of the most underrated bands ever!
