Steve of Torche, riding the (fat) waves (more by Justina Villanueva)
Torche

Over the coming weeks, we'll be announcing details of some of our (many) day & night shows happening in Austin during SXSW this year. Emo's on March 17th is the first of these shows, and mark my words, it will be utter pandemonium. Proof? The first announcement of more than twelve bands slated for the free gig is Torche. Stay tuned for more announcements, but until then, save the date.

Later that night we move over to Club DeVille for an official showcase featuring Serena Maneesh, Califone and more TBA. Then on Friday, we've also just revealed, that we'll be hanging out at Club DeVille again for another day party with Lucero and many more TBA there too.

The Wednesday BV Day Party is one of a handful of Austin dates for Torche before the band takes a breather, only to reignite for a string of dates with Coheed & Cambria and Circa Survive that include May 26th at Rumsey Playfield (aka Central Park Summerstage). Ticket info is forthcoming.

In related news, Torche will team up with Boris to domestically release Chapter Ahead Of Being Fake for Hydrahead. No word on an exact release date. Torche's Steve Brooks is getting his old band Floor back together. Robotic Empire will release a mega-mega-mega boxset for the band. Preorder it here.

A new-ish video for "King Beef" and full Torche dates are below.

why does Coheed always have awesome openers?

Hope Torche does a proper tour after this, I would never pay Coheed(and their price!) to see Torche

Coheed is a great band, so is Circa Survive.

They would be an awesome tour package with NICKELBACK

Man, for something called "Brooklyn Vegan" with a "Metal" section, this blog is certainly utterly uninterested in writing about NYC-area metal bands.

Oh wait I keep forgetting that Liturgy is the only metal band in all of NYC.

they need to play in a venue not a playfield.

please explain 9:26, aka member of a shitty local band of haters

Posted by Anonymous | February 12, 2010 9:51 AM

Uh. I'm just saying - I hear more about well-known national bands than about any bands from the city except Liturgy, especially considering how many NYC metal bands there are (tons). Go ahead, give me a counterexample. I'm waiting.

Looks like they have a few days off before the Rumsey show. I really hope they do their own show during that time.

Please tell me why you would expect BBG to put anything about local metal bands in a post about SXSW?

also, maybe you should look at the shows he books with Wetnurse, Unearthly Trance, Tombs, Dysrhythmia, Bloodhorse, etc.

JT is so correct, dude, do you ever read this blog? it's a bonanza of metal and NYC-related metal! do a BBG filter and fill ur brain with the post runs. silly.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
